LIVE – CWG 2022 | Chance for Indian boxers to seal medals

It is a big day for the Indian boxing contingent, who would be playing their semi-final matches today, starting at 3pm, at the Commonwealth Games 2022. After Lovlina Borgohain lost early in the competition, the onus is on the others to bring back a handful of medals for the country.

That is it as far as the Indian involvement is concerned for now. We still have Rohit Tokas and Sagar in the final session of the day that will start at IST 12:30 AM. 

HERE IS THE DECISION

AND THE WINNER… BY SPLIT DECISION…. IS GEMMA RICHARDSON

ROUND 3 | JAISMINE vs RICHARDSON

Jaismine will have to come out fighting here. Defensive boxing is not going to get her a win here. She is still hoping to fight on the counter. But Richarson is landing her punches here. The Indian is throwing punches around but there is no conviction to these. And again she gets caught by a big right hand. JAISMINE HAS TO GO ALL IN NOW!! SHE IS NOT WINNING THIS!! SHE GOES FOR IT AND LAND A BIG HOOK! Richarson is staying away now. AND THAT IS IT!! I DON’T THINK THE INDIAN HAS DONE ENOUGH TO WIN THIS!

ROUND 2 | JAISMINE vs RICHARDSON

Both boxers get close to each other and unleash. There were a few clean shots by both players there. Richarson pushes Jaismine back by the chin. That looked ugly. It can cost her points if she tries it again. Jaismine gets a warning for holding now. Again a couple of jabs from Richarson land. Jaismine gets caught with a right left combo. BUT JAISMINE COMES BACK WITH A COMBO AS WELL! THIS WILL BE A COIN FLIP FOR ME! 

THAT WAS A FULL SET OF DECISIONS FOR RICHARDSON! 

ROUND 1 | JAISMINE vs RICHARDSON

It is Richarsin who has taken the initiative early. However, it is the Indian who has the reach advantage. Jaismine is too defensive here. We have not really seeen too much from here. BUT SHE COMES UP WITH A QUICK JAB WITH THE RIGHT! OH MY!!! RICHARDSON COMES BACK WITH THREE JABS INTO THE FACE! THAT WILL BE SCORING SHOTS! Now Richarson unleashes a right hook. Jaismine geta jab in but I don’t think she has done enough here. 

It is a split decision in favour of the Englishwoman.

India is up on the mat next. Jaismine is going to take on England’s Gemma Richarson in the Lightweight Category Semi Final.  


AND THE WINNER…. BY UNANIMOUS DECISION… NIKHAT ZAREEN!!! 

ROUND 3 – NIKHAT vs STUBLEY

Stubley will need to come out and fight now. She throws a right but it only partially catches Nikhat. The Indian also catches her with a jab. Nikhat has to just stay away here. She has two points per judge on her opponent. Stubley has not been able to create any real attack her. She stops Nikhat on the ropes but cannot get a telling hit on the Indian. Great jab by the Indian again. WHAT A A HOOK!! NIKHAT MIGHT WIN THIS ONE AS WELL!!

ROUND 2 – NIKHAT vs STUBLEY

Having won the first round, Nikhat is dominating the second round as well. Stubley is struggling to keep up with the Indian now. Nikhat is using her reach very well. The referee has warned Stubley to not use her head to attack. AND SHE GETS CAUGHT BY A BIG RIGHT HAND BY NIKHAT! THAT SHOULD BE NIKHAT’S ROUND AS WELL! 

It is! 10-9 for the Indian by all the judges.


That is all the action we have for you as far as India is concerned in the first session. Do join us again at IST 7 PM for more ive action from the CWG. 

HERE WE GO!!! DECISION TIME!!! 

WINNER BY UNANIMOUS DECISION!!! AMIT PHANGAL!!! WHAT A WIN!!! HE WINS THE LAST ROUND AS WELL!! THAT WAS TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT THOUGH!!

Patrick is behind on the cards and it shows as he comes out fast again. Amit stays away and then counters quickly with a brilliant hook. Amit is countering perfectly right now. He is staying away from the big right hand that has given so many problems to other boxers so far. The Zambian is behind on the cards and his desperation is quite evident here. Amit is waiting for him and getting in his shots that will score. GREAT hit by the Indian but Patrick is getting in a lot of work to t he body. THAT IS IT!! THIS IS CLOSE!!! I HAVE NO IDEA WHO WILL WIN THIS ONE!

ROUND 2 AMIT vs PATRICK

Amit starts off well with a couple of quick jabs. OH MY!! PATRICK RESPONDS WITH TWO BIG HOOKS!! Amit comes back with a couple of his own but not with the same amount of power behind them. Patrick lands a few body shots as he tries to assert his will in the game. Amit clips the Zambian on a counter punch but he takes one as well. Patrick gets warned to keep his head up as both get close to each other this time. TWO MORE BIG HITS BY THE ZAMBIAN!! Amit has landed quite a few scorable hits as well. This is going to be close as well. I think the Zambian might have just edged this one.

IT IS NOT!!! AMIT WINS BY UNANIMOUS DECISION IN THIS ROUND! ALL 10-9. 

ROUND 1 AMIT vs PATRICK

Patrick starts on the front foot as he lands a jab. Amit gets into his groove and Patrick feels the force of two hooks. OH MY!! That was a big right hand by the Zambian. Amit, fighting with his open stance, has landed a few jabs here and there but the Zambian responds with a counter shot again. Amit land a big right hand this time but this is too close to call. AMIT GETS CLOSE AND HANDS A FEW HOOKS OF HIS OWN! Amit is being his elusive best but he has to be a little more aggressive. THIS IS A COIN FLIP FOR ME!

The judges agree as it is a split decision in favour of the Zambian.

AMIT vs PATRICK

Patrick one his last fight after the referee stopped the fight. I don’t think he will be doing that today.

We are almost ready as we wait for the boxers to make their way out to the ring.

Amit Phangal will be up next. He will take on Zambia’s Patrick Chinyemba

ROUND 2 – NITU vs DHILLON

Dhillon comes out of the box firing but Nitu does well to stay away. A good defensive round should be enough for the Indian here. BUT SHE GOES ON THE ATTACK WITH A HUGE HOOK AGAIN!! AND AGAIN IT IS A STANDING COUNT FOR DHILLON!!! 

AND THE REFEREE STOPS THE CONTEST!!! THIS IS A WIN FOR THE INDIAN!! WHAT A BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE THAT WAS! 

ROUND 2 – NITU vs DHILLON

The Canadian is now trying to assert herself but she gets caught by a counter jab by the Indian. Huge jab by the Canadian now. And again. Nitu has been on the backfoot in this round. She comes back with a three punch combo but only one lands cleanly. Nitu comes back with another quick jab. AND SHE PUTS IN A HUGE HOOK!! STANDING COUNT FOR DHILLON!! THIS WILL BE A ROUND FOR NITU AGAIN

ROUND 1 – NITU vs DHILLON

Nitu has landed a great hook by the Indian. It has been quite a slow start by the boxers. Nitu has been the aggressive of the two. Dillon tries to counter but the Indian reponds with a great jab into the face. Dhillon is now coming out to fight. ANOTHER BIG JAB BY THE INDIAN! The Canadian finally lands a jab and hook combo but this round should go to the Indian.    

ROUND 1 – NITU vs DHILLON

ROUND 1 – NITU vs DHILLON

Here come the boxers. 

UPDATE – The first day of the match is for Nitu Gangahas in the 45kg category, where she takes on Canada’s Priyanka in the semis. STAY TUNED for the latest.
