Zareen continued her dominant run inside the boxing ring and was too good for opponents throughout 2022 CWG to add coveted yellow metal to her resume.
She was too good for the Northern Ireland pugilist and won the bout on a unanimous decision by the judges. McNaul looked frustrated in the third round and tried to bounce back but Zareen didn’t give her any opportunity
The 26-year-old Indian produced some dominant performances in the 2022 CWG which also include a one-sided semifinal bout where Zareen outclassed England’s Stubley Alfia Savannah and won the bout via a unanimous 5-0 verdict.
