Reigning World Champion Zareen on Friday assured India a medal in the 50kg weight category after beating Jordan’s Hanan Nassar by KO in 2 minutes in a quarterfinal of the ongoing 19th Asian Games. 
She will be up against Thailand’s Chuthamat Raksat in the semifinal.
The Indian boxer needed less than two minutes to overcome Jordan’s Nassar Hanan in the quarterfinals, as her merciless boxing caused the referee to end the contest via RSC (referee stops count).
Currently, India’s medal tally in the games is 34, with eight gold, 13 silver and 13 bronze medals. (ANI)
