Among the men, debutant Gaurav Solanki (52kg) made the semifinals to be assured of a medal.
It was a battle of veterans between the 35-year-old Indian and the 39-year-old Koddithuwak.
Mary Kom, also a sitting Rajya Sabha MP in India, prevailed in a rather dull contest where clean punches were few and far.
The Olympic bronze-medallist Indian will square off against Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the final. O'Hara, a carer at a nursing home in her country, defeated 19-year-old New Zealander Tasmyn Benny in the semifinals.
The former world and Asian champion Indian found teh crowd favourite's power difficult to handle and was also troubled by her ill-fitting headguard.
"It was distracting and I think this other girl was very good. I could not handle the power of her punches. Besides, home turf always brings out the best in you, which was the case with her today," said the gracious-in-defeat boxer from Manipur.
The 21-year-old managed to evade several attempts at head-butts by his rival in a bout he eventually claimed 5-0.
"It was a risky fight. He was trying to hit me but I think my reflexes were very sharp so I managed to outwit him," he said.
