Mnguni is confident of winning the medal in the 54-57 kg category – SABC News

South African women’s boxer Phiwokuhle Mnuguni gave the South African team something to smile about on day seven of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Mnguni, who is based in the United States, has reached the semi-finals of categories 54 to 57, and is expected to win a medal. He defeated Sajeewani Mthuthanthri of Sri Lanka by stoppage in the third round.

After the first round, Mnguni rallied under pressure in the second round in which the Sri Lankans scored eight points.

The referee finally had no choice but to stop the match in the third and final round, with the South Africans clearly on top.

The second round will take place on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the South African women’s cricket team ended their campaign with only their first win. They beat Sri Lanka by 10 wickets.
