India’s debutant boxer Amit Panghal defeated Uzbekistan’s Hasanboy Dusmatov 3-2 in Boxing Men’s Light Fly (49kg) final event to win a gold medal on the 14th day of the 2018 Asian Games on Saturday.


The 22-year-old Armyman, who won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year, was facing reigning Olympic champion and world championships silver-medallist Dusmatov in the summit clash today.

Amit Panghal, making his debut at the Games, showed immense tactical brilliance, especially in defence to outwit the Uzbek, who has an iconic status in international boxing. Dusmatov won a silver in the world championship last year.

But today, the Haryana-boxer extracted sweet revenge for the narrow loss in Hamburg, keeping his range and striking some clean right hooks and jabs to his shorter and slightly edgy opponent.

The Uzbek southpaw, known for his brilliant counter-attacks, seemed wary of the constantly-on-the-move Indian, who refused to fall into the trap of diving in.

Amit had lost a close quarterfinal contest to Dusmatov in the Hamburg world championships last year.

Amit Panghal won gold at the prestigious Strandja Memorial Tournament in Bulgaria earlier this year and has been enjoying a breakthrough season. He is also an Asian championships bronze-medallist.
