Boro started strongly against her young Mongolian opponent. She effectively blunted Monkhor’s speedy movements by tactically shifting gears to carve out a 4-1 win after three rounds.


However, it was an opposite result for Loura. He came into the second-round clash high on confidence after beating Bulgaria’s 10-time national champion Kristiyan Nikolov. But Cassidy was well prepared for the long reach of his opponent and went on to win 0-5.
