Commonwealth Games 2022: Boxer Jaismine Lamboria Secures A Medal After Win Against Troy Garton

August 04, 2022 | by Priyadarshini Malavia

This time’s Commonwealth Games have been very significant for our country. Not only have we won quite a few medals but it also seems as though female athletes are setting a standard and putting their best leg forward. And on to the list is Jaismine Lamboria who secured a medal for India after defeating New Zealand boxer Troy Garton.

Another medal is guaranteed for India in boxing after Jaismine Lamboria defeated Troy Garton of New Zealand in a split decision to advance to the semi-final at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Jaismine won the first round after receiving a 10-point advantage from each of the five judges. The Indian boxer began the second round with some aggressive intent because she had the advantage going into it.

She made use of her height and her left hand to deliver several powerful blows. The second game once more ended in India’s favour. Jaismine advances to the semifinals of the women’s 60 kg competition after defeating Troy (NZL) by split decision (4-1). Jaismine started the quarter-final fight with good intentions, but the Kiwi fighter also made sure to throw a few blows. Despite this, the Indian kept her distance and made the most of her height advantage. After this win, the boxer is all set to face English boxer Gemma Paige Richardson in the semi-final round which is to be held on Saturday.

In a frantic, hotly contested light-middleweight final, the bronze medalist from the 2021 Asian youth boxing championship Jaismine outpunched the 2022 world championship, bronze medalist, Parveen Hooda.

Amit Panghal, a boxer, ensured he advanced to the semifinals earlier in the day by winning the men’s flyweight division quarterfinals (51kg). He earned a unanimous decision victory over Lennon Mulligan of Scotland in the quarterfinals (5:0). Panghal eased into the fight after scoring several early huge lefts, but the Scotsman put up a resolute front and scored a handful of his own. In the second round, Mulligan started out strong and kept busy by forcing the Indian to the ropes. But in the second round, the more seasoned Panghal retaliated and punched his way free of the clinch.
