CWG 2022: Indian women’s boxer Neetu has secured a place in the final by winning the semi-final match of 45-48 kg minimum weight. With this win, Neetu has ensured her silver medal.
Indian boxer Neetu Ghangas has won the semi-final bout of women’s boxing in the minimum weight category (45-48kg) at the Commonwealth Games 2022. In this match, she defeated Priyanka Dhillon of Canada and made it to the final. With this, India’s first silver medal in boxing was also confirmed.
Neetu hurled so many punches at the Canadian boxer in the third round that the referee had to stop the game and declare Neetu the winner. Earlier, in the quarter-final match too, Neetu had won in a similar manner.
21-year-old Neetu is participating in the Commonwealth Games for the first time. She is playing in the VAT category of Indian legend boxer Mary Kom. In his very first Commonwealth Games, he made a strong performance by winning one fight after the other and made it to the finals. In the quarterfinal match, Neetu hit Irish boxer Clyde Nicholl in such a way that he was declared the winner after two rounds.
