Asian Boxing Championships: Amit Panghal Wins Gold With Dominating Win in Final
Asian Boxing Championships 2019: Amit Panghal reigned supreme in Asia with a gold medal while Kavinder Singh Bisht and Deepak Singh settled for silver.
Amit Panghal followed up his Asian Games 2018 gold with a gold medal at Asian Boxing Championships.
Amit Panghal continued his reign in Asia as he won the gold medal in 52kg category at Asian Boxing Championships on Friday to continue the solid show by Indian boxers in the competition.
Panghal absolutely thrashed his opponent in the final to win the elusive yellow metal. It was Korea's Kim Inkyu against him in the final bout and Panghal defeated him by a hefty margin of 5-0.
It is important to note that Panghal had also won the gold medal at the Asian Games last year, which is why with this win, he has established his hold over his Asian counterparts.
It was a trademark display from him where he showed his sheer power to outclass his opponent.
