  • Australia's Taylah Robertson takes on England's Lisa Whiteside en route to bronze

With this win, Mary Kom has become the first Indian woman to win a boxing gold at Commonwealth Games 2018, pointed out Akshay Kumar while lauding her on Twitter.

Namibia's Jonas Jonas, who won gold in the men's 64kg boxing bout after beating Canada's Thomas Blumenfeld, said a call from his mother in the morning had inspired him to victory.

Solanki dominated most of the battle against Northern Ireland's Brendan Irvine and won by a split 4:1 verdict. However, what should be troubling Indian fans was the manner in which Manish Kaushik was handed out defeat against Australia's Harry Garside in the 60kg.

Meanwhile, another Indian boxer in Amit Panghal has won silver in 46-49 kg category. Mary Kom is the name, and the gold is hers they say! The film depicted Mary Kom's journey of becoming a boxer upto her victory at the 2008 World Boxing Championships in Ningbo, which was her fourth title win at the competition.
