The young boxer from Sonepat entered the Games with a lot of confidence after winning the bronze medal at the 2022 Senior Asian Championships. He also finished 5th in the 2022 Bolat Turlikhanov Cup.

However, it was not an easy road for him in Birmingham as he faced Nigeria’s Ogbonna Emmanuel John in the quarter-finals. Ogbonna has a great reputation in the wrestling world and has won many awards in Africa but the new one on Saturday was too good for him as he emerged victorious on technical superiority.

England’s Charlie Bowling had the same belief in the semi-final as Naveen proved his dominance with a 12-1 victory on technical superiority.

Meanwhile, India won six medals in wrestling on Friday with Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik and Deepak Punia winning gold. Anshu Malik lost in the final to win the silver medal. While Divya Kakaran and Mohit Gehlot were very dominant in their bronze medal bouts to win medals in the CWG.
