On the other hand, Guwahati boy Shiva Thapa grabbed the 60kg gold in a revenge bout against 2018 champion Manish Kaushik. He won with 5-0 score.

Much to delight, Jamuna Boro delivered a flurry of punches that earned her a perfect 5-0 win over Y. Sandhyarani. World Championships bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain did not enjoy the same fortune despite vociferous cheers from the crowd.
