June 10, 2022: Veteran Indian boxer Mary Kom was ruled out of the Commonwealth Games (CWG) boxing trials after picking up an injury. She injured her left knee in Round 1 of her bout against Nitu in the 48kg category and lost by RSC (I). The six-time world champion injured herself in the first round of the 48 kg semifinals.



Haryana's Nitu thus advanced to the finals of the CWG trials at the Indira Gandhi International Stadium here.



The 2018 gold medallist, Mary, fell down in the first round of the bout. The 39-year-old tried to keep going but after a couple of punches, struggled to keep her balance as she clutched her left leg.



She had to be carried out of the ring with the referee announcing a win for Nitu by Referee Stops the Contest (RSCI). She has been taken to the hospital for scans.



The most decorated Indian boxer has given the World Championships and Asian Games a miss to concentrate on the CWG, which is to be held in Birmingham next month.
