In the round of 16 for the under-60 kilogram division, the Brazilian Ferreira earned a unanimous decision victory over the Chilean Valentina Bustamente, bringing her one step closer to reclaiming her title.

When Sürmeneli provoked an abandonment early in the second round of the under-66 kilogram match against Akira Skoog of the United States of America, the fans went into a frenzy.

During the early stages of their fight for the under-52 kilogram weight class, Charley Davison of England and Hainite Kayla Tuitupou of Tonga brought the referee’s attention to the need for a stoppage.

Carly McNaul of Ireland continued her strong run of success by earning a victory via split decision over Nikolina Cacic of Croatia in the same weight category. The final score was 4-0.

Imane Khelif of Algeria won the under-63 kilogram competition against Beatris Rozentale of Latvia with a score of unanimous decision. Amy Broadhurst of Ireland defeated Aslahan Mehmedova of Bulgaria and also won by a score of unanimous decision.

Following her victory against her Venezuelan opponent Krisandy Rios by a score of unanimous decision, American boxer Rashida Ellis continued to demonstrate why she could be considered a serious challenger for the under-60 kilogram division crown held by Ferreira.

Alessia Mesiano, who had previously won the world championship in 2016, was successful in this category as well, defeating Kiria Tapia of Puerto Rico by a unanimous vote.

After a violent fight with Shona Whitwell of England, Natalia Sandrina of Serbia was declared the winner and advanced to the next round. The match ended with a score of 5-0.
