Hangzhou, Oct 4 (IANS): The reigning world champion boxer Lovlina Borgohain bagged a silver medal in the women's 75kg final at the 19th Asian Games, here on Wednesday.

Her silver is India's fifth boxing medal at Hangzhou. Earleir, Nikhat Zareen, Preeti Pawar, Narender Berwal and Parveen Hooda bagged bronze medals in their respective weight categories.
