Indian boxing sensation Nikhat Zareen continued her good form at the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games as she reached the semifinal of the Women's 48-50kg light flyweight. Zareen defeated Wales' boxer Helen Jones 5-0 to progress to the next round. With this win, India are assured to win a medal in boxing.
The Indian used her rich experience to unsettle Jones from the onset. She came out attacking and used her combinations of left and right punches to overpower her opponent. The Indian pugilist will next face Savannah Alfia Stubley of England in the semifinals, where a win will secure her podium finish.
