Reigning world champions Nikhat Zareen and Amit Panghal were the three Indian boxers who made it to the finals.

Nikhat defeated England’s Stubley Alfia Savannah 5-0 in the women’s 50kg final. Panghal (51 kg) also showed his class as he reached the CWG final for the second time in a row.

Neetu Ghanghas (48 kg) also maintained her first appearance with a gold medal.

Nikhat started the semi-final with confidence and dominated all three rounds to take the title in a one-sided fight. As expected, the 26-year-old Indian was in the lead after the first round with all five judges ruling in her favor and continued to do so in the next two rounds.

Panghal, who is aiming to win the yellow metal after silver in the last edition, defeated Zambia’s aggressive Patrick Chinyemba 5-0 by unanimous decision. On the other hand, Neetu overcame Canada’s Priyanka Dhillon as she won the RSC (Referee Stops Competition) in the minimum weight category.

Such was the confidence of the 21-year-old Neetu that she played with an open guard, using her straight jabs and combination punches to invite the opponent to strike. In the end the referee had to end the contest. Chasing their first gold medal, both boxers will face local challengers Kieran McDonald (men’s fly) and Demi-Jade Rezton (women’s min) in their respective finals on Sunday.

Can't let it go this time,” a determined Panghal, who lost to another Briton and Tokyo Olympic champion in Galal Yafai in 2018, told PTI. Panghal, 26, was left on the backfoot as his smaller, more aggressive opponent rained punches on the world championship silver medallist.</p> <p>Initially trailing 2-3, Panghal looked to bounce back. After a first-round exit from the ghost of the Tokyo Olympics, he had to dig deep into his reserves of experience. The Asian Games champion stepped up the pace with a flurry of jabs, landing hooks and jabs to clinch the round. In the final three minutes, both fighters tried to leave the mark but the four judges ruled in favor of Panghal.</p> <p>"He was aggressive up front and I had to give it my all and use everything. My experience of coming back in the last two rounds. I hope I get gold this time,” said Panghal.</p> <p>Read onbreaking news And Headlines here
