Birmingham, August 4

India pugilists Amit Panghal, Jasmine and Sagar Ahlawat won their respective bouts to take India’s medal count in boxing to six at the Commonwealth Games today.

Panghal ensured a fourth medal after winning his 51kg quarterfinals encounter against Scotland’s Lennon Mulligan, while Ahlawat dominated Seychelles’ Keddy Evans Agnes 5-0 in the men’s +92kg category.

Later in the day, Jasmine beat New Zealand’s Troy Garton by a 4-1 split verdict in the women’s 60kg quarterfinals bout. It was a unanimous verdict in favour of Panghal, who had won silver in the last edition in Gold Coast.

The bout wasn’t of great quality as the 26-year-old Indian prevailed over his younger Scottish opponent by tiring him out with a solid defence. He gained most of the points by unleashing occasional ferocious counterattacks. Ahlawat, a student of GGDSD College (Sector-32, Chandigarh), was congratulated by the city boxing community for the feat.
