Mary Kom withdrew from Commonwealth Games boxing tests due to a foot injury; Risk participation

Earlier, top Indian boxer MC Mary Kom had to withdraw due to a leg injury sustained during the 48 kg Commonwealth Games test.

The six-time world champion injured herself in the first round of the 48kg semifinals and was literally knocked out of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham from 28 July to 8 August.

The most handsome Indian boxer had missed out on the World Championships and Asian Games to focus on the 2022 Commonwealth Games, but luck was not on his side.

While dancing around the ring, Nikhat took control of her entire climb and hit clear punches.

Nikat made history in May when she won the gold medal in the flyweight (52kg) group by easily defeating Jitpong Jutamas of Thailand 5-0 in the final of the Women’s World Championships in Istanbul, Turkey.

Concluding a spectacular campaign, he defeated all his rivals, with the Telangana boxer defeating his Thai rival 30-27, 29-28, 29-28, 30-27, 29-28.

Nikit is only the fifth Indian female boxer after Mary Kom, Sarita Devi, Jenny RL and Lekh KC (who has won the world title).


Lovelina Borgohen has also booked a ticket to Birmingham.

Meanwhile, two-time former youth world champion Neetu defeated 2019 silver medalist Manju Rani 5-2.

This boxer from Haryana is having a good day this year. She had won a gold medal at the Strandja Memorial earlier this year.

2021 Asian Youth Boxing Championship bronze medalist Jasmine defeated 2022 World Championship bronze medalist Parveen Hooda in the fast-paced light-mediumweight final.

CWG 2022 Indian Women’s Boxing Association:
Neetu (48 kg), Nikhat Jareen (50 kg), Jasmine (60 kg), Lovelina Borgohen (70 kg).
