It was Mumbai which came from behind to beat Bollywood veteran Dharmendra co-owned Punjab 5-2 in the opening contest. It was 'Best of 7 bouts' with men 65kg and women 48 kg categories being blocked. Amidst all the chaos and confusion that marred the poorly-organized event, it was Geeta's defeat that came as the biggest surprise of the day.
The bout which saw a number of referrals being taken, ultimately ended with scores tied at 8-8. But it was of Mumbai who had the last laugh in women's 58kg category as she bagged more points on the trot as compared to her compatriot. Geeta looked out of sorts at times as her much younger opponent proved to be really good at times.
After Geeta's loss, Mumbai sealed the contest with an unassailable 4-2 lead.
