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.
