India will be going back with nine boxing medals from the current edition, two more than their previous best at the 2010 Delhi Games. Boxers Manish Kaushik and Amit Phangal bag silver too.

Apart from these six boxers, three others, Muhammed Hussamuddin, Naman Tanwar and Manoj Kumar claimed bronze medals on Friday.

"This medal and each one of my medals is special to me because I have worked equally hard for them".

O'Hara, 22, revealed that her husband sold his vehicle so that he could join her at the Commonwealth Games. The Indian lost the third round but did just enough in the first two to walk away with a gold medal on debut at the Games.

Mary's 22-year-old Irish opponent couldn't counter Mary's experience as she dominated with right hooks. It was Vikas' first medal at the Commonwealth Games.

This is the first time India got a silver medal in the super heavyweight category in the Commonwealth Games.

Debate time The two were discussing the rise of cosmetic injections including one Australian clinic which offered alcoholic beverages to customers after the procedure

Vikas defeated Dieudonne Wilfried Seyi Ntsengue of Cameroon by a 5:0 unanimous verdict in a close contest which saw both the boxers claiming to have won the bout before the referee's verdict.

Indian ace, Mary Kom, had won the gold in Asian Championship in Vietnam nearly five months ago to script one of the greatest comebacks in Indian sports history.

Kenya's world champion Elijah Manangoi wins the 1500m gold from compatriot Timothy Cheruiyot, a repeat of last year's result at the world titles.

Amit finished with the silver medal in the men's light flyweight (49 kg) category after losing 1:3 to England's Galai Yafai in the final. "I thought it was 50-50 bout", Amit said after his loss.

In the afternoon, Neeraj Chopra also registered his name at the Carrara stadium when he became the first Indian javelin thrower to claim a gold medal.
