In the 92kg semi-final, Sagar got off to a good start and was marked the winner of the first round by all five judges. He kept his advantage in the second round as well, landing some blows on his opponent. The Nigerian tried to attack in the third round and connected some combinations to score points and was marked the winner of the third round by four of the five judges.
But as Sagar had done enough in the two previous rounds, he was declared the winner on points. In the final to be played on Sunday, Sagar will take on England’s Delicious Orie, who defeated Leuila Mau’u if Australia in the other semifinal.
