Carly thoroughly dominated Zareen throughout all three sessions, remaining true to her title as "reigning champion." She won 5-0 solely on total points.
On Sunday, Amit Panghal ended up winning one more boxing gold medal for his country by conquering England's Kiaran Macdonald in the 48-51 kg (Flyweight) final at the recurring Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham.
The game was overtaken by Panghal, who won it 5-0. He won on the basis of points. Panghal made a convincing start in the initial round. Despite the fact that Panghal's English adversary wasn't really out of the fight, the judges made the decision that Panghal was the superior athlete and granted him 10 points out of a potential 20 to McD's nine.
Panghal maintained his lead in the second round by maintaining his momentum. Macdonald tried to come back but plainly couldn't match the Indian's skill and thus was defeated in the second round as well.
