PTI
In Boxing, reigning India Open gold medallist Neeraj stunned 2016 World Champion Alessia Mesiano to enter the final of the Magomed Salam Umakhanov Memorial International Boxing Tournament in Kaspiysk, Russia today. Neeraj, a bronze medallist at the Strandja Memorial, eked out a narrow 3-2 win over Mesiano in the 57-kg category to assure himself at least a silver medal.

Earlier, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Gaurav Solanki and 2019 India Open silver medallist Govind Sahani assured two more medals for India by entering the semi-finals. Gaurav, a bronze medallist at this year's India Open, defeated Russia's Maksim Chernyshev 3-2 in a split verdict to enter the last-four round of 56kg category.  

Later, Govind, a silver medallist at the GeeBee Boxing earlier this year, outboxed Tajikistan's Shermukhammad Rustamov in the 49-kg category. 
   
India are assured of six medals as four women and two men have reached the semi-finals.
