Olympics 2012 boxing: Tajikistan and Brazil women bag bronzeLondon: Boxer Mavzuna Chorieva became the first woman from Tajikistan to win an Olympic medal after she and Brazil`s Adriana Araujo settled for the bronze in the 60kg category at the ExCel Arena here Wednesday.

In the Olympic final, Ireland`s World Champion Katie Taylor will face the woman she defeated 11-7 for the lightweight world title in May, Russia`s Sofya Ochigava.

Taylor`s win over Chorieva was another repeat from the World Championships, as the Irish boxer mimicked her dominant semi-final performance from May with a 17-9 victory in which she won every round.

Ochigava`s fight against the quick-moving Araujo was closer, but the Russian still won three of the four rounds as she emerged victorious by a score of 17-11.

Taylor and Ochigava will face-off in the final Thursday.

Women`s boxing is making its debut in London.

Both semi-final losers are awarded bronze.
