Amit Panghal has ensured at least a silver medal by reaching the final of the 51 kg weight category. Nikhat in the women’s 51 kg category and Neetu Ganghas in the women’s 48 kg category by entering the finals ensured at least a silver medal.
First Neetu showed her strength
Neetu, who entered the ring first, reached her first Commonwealth Games gold medal match in which she will be in front of England’s Resjatan Demi Jade. She ensured her silver medal by defeating Priyanka Dhillon of Canada in the semi-finals by RSC (referee stopping the match). Twenty-one-year-old Neetu’s self-confidence was palpable, playing open guard to incite the opponent to punch her and she could use her straight boxers very well. He dominated with one or two punches in a row, forcing the referee to stop the match.
Panghal also prevailed
After this Panghal landed in the ring. He entered the finals in the Commonwealth Games consecutively on the basis of his brilliant performance. Last time he had to be content with a silver medal, so this time he would like to change the color of the medal. He defeated Patrick Chinayamba of Zimbabwe 5-0 in a unanimous decision in the semi-finals. He will face England’s McDonald Kieran in the final on 7 August. Panghal told news agency PTI, I know that the next match will be difficult because there will be more excitement for the host boxer but I am focused. Can’t let go of this time.
The 26-year-old Panghal was showered with punches early on by his aggressive rival, leaving the World Championship silver medalist 2-3 in the opening round. But Panghal, who was trying to leave behind the dismal performance of the Tokyo Olympics, took advantage of his experience to apply hooks and jabs according to his will and did not give the opponent a chance to dominate and the judges ruled in favor of the Indian boxer.
