New Delhi :  Veteran L Sarita Devi and rookie Manisha Mouna gave India a flying start in the women’s World Boxing Championships with dominating victories in their respective bouts here on Friday.

While Manisha punched above her weight to outclass veteran American Christina Cruz in an unanimous verdict in 54kg, 2006 edition gold medallist Sarita (60kg) had to work harder to emerge 4-0 winner on points against Diana Sandra Brugger of Switzerland in their opening bouts at the K D Jadhav Stadium here.

Both Sarita and Manisha advanced to the prequarterfinals where they will face Kellie Herrington of Ireland and Dina Zholaman of Kazakhstan respectively on Sunday.
