TAIPEI — Taiwanese boxer Chen Nien-chin, who has kept up an impressive streak of wins since 2013, vowed Tuesday to defend her title in the upcoming biennial International Boxing Association (AIBA) Women’s Junior and Youth World Boxing Championships in Taiwan.

“I hope I can win another gold medal for Taiwan,” said Chen, who won the 75-kilogram weight category title at the 2013 championships in Bulgaria.
