New Delhi, November 28
Indian boxer Urvashi Singh beat Thailand's national champion Thanchanok Phanan in a 10-round contest to claim the WBC International Super Bantamweight title as well as the WBC Asia Silver crown in Colombo.
Urvashi (10-3, 6 KOs) was victorious by a unanimous decision over Thanchanok (12-5, 6 KO) on Sunday night.
After a tactical few opening rounds, Urvashi started to take control of the bout by the fourth round with her relentless jabbing and combinations to the opponent's body.
Thanchanok tried her best to return fire but Urvashi was far superior on technical ability, speed and power in her punches.
"I am really thankful to my entire promotions team at DJMC Events led by Rozairo, without whom I couldn't have imagined achieving any of this," she said.
"I now am the WBC Asia Continental and International Champion."
