The boxing medals were decided Saturday at the 2018 Commonwealth Games with the Australian team finishing with an impressive tally of three gold, two silver and three bronze at the Oxenford Studios, host venue for the boxing competition. Solanki won a tough, fast paced, tactical battle by a split 4:1 verdict against the impressive Brendan Irvine of Northern Ireland in the final.

"That is hard to say, but I will try", said Kom, who is already older than most of her opponents.

Aussie Chloe Hosking claimed the first Gold of the day, emerging victorious in the Women's Road Race final, with the Men's final still to come today. Though Mary's offensive approach meant that she had to be at the receiving end as well, her punches outscored her opponent by a mile.

"We are all very disappointed that we could not qualify for the Gold Medal match because it was our target for the Commonwealth Games".

Mary is a five-time World Champion, an Olympic bronze medalist and has also won the Asian Championship five times.

So we have two Indian pairs playing for the bronze medal.

The 26-year-old waved to the crowd as she departed, and her team's solid defence kept a stranglehold on England's scoring to minimise any concerns of a fightback. Which other boxer can claim that, now I would not be scared of anyone.

"Willpower, mentally strong", she said, asked how she coped with it.

Indian women's hockey team suffered a humiliating 0-6 defeat in the bronze medal match against England to finish fourth at the Commonwealth Games.

Though India had good ball possession in the initial minutes of the first quarter, England were far more dominating with intense attack, making spaces in the striking circle.

Vikas Krishan won gold on Day 10 of CWG. More demoralising was Manish Kaushik's loss in the 60kg category. We give it to them too easily and that's been happening the whole tournament.
