Super Heavyweight boxer Sagar Ahlawat ensured the sixth medal for India from the boxing ring after winning his (+92kg) quarter-final against Seychelles' Keddy Agnes at the Commonwealth Games on Thursday.

Earlier, Sagar defeated India’s No. 1 super heavyweight and 2020 Tokyo quarterfinalist Satish Kumar 5-0 and reigning national champion Narender in the trials for men's +92kg to book his place for the Commonwealth Games. Sagar, a 23-year-old, is from Dhandlan village in Jhajjar. Sagar is a BA III student of GGDSD College.

Earlier, Jasmine beat New Zealand's Troy Garton by a 4-1 split verdict in the women's lightweight (60kg)

quarter-final, while Panghal too won his flyweight (48-51 kg) quarter-final against Scotland's Lennon Mulligan to assure two more medals for India. In the men's bout, it was a unanimous verdict in favour of the Indian southpaw, who had won a silver medal during the last edition on the Gold Coast.

The bout wasn't of great quality, but Panghal prevailed over his younger Scottish opponent, tiring him out with his solid defense. He gained points with occasional ferocious counter-attacks. In the first two rounds, the 26-year-old Indian employed a guard-down approach to invite Mulligan to go on the offensive but swayed away from his reach with some nimble footwork.
