Amit Panghal is among the talented young pugilists in the country who have taken Indian boxing by storm. He came into limelight with a rich haul in 2017 that included a bronze at the Asian Championships and he also reached the Quarter-finals at the World Championships in Hamburg, Germany. Amit also won a gold medal at the Grand Prix Usti nad Labem Boxing tournament in Czechoslovakia, establishing himself as the rising star of the nation.
The 22-year-old continued his sublime form in 2018 which saw him come up with successive gold medals at the India Open International tournament in January, followed by the triumph in Bulgaria where he won the final at the 69th Strandja Memorial in Bulgaria. Cut to CWG in April, Amit picked up his first ever Commonwealth medal. He lost to Galal Yafai of England in the final and won the silver in the process. The boxer’s upward journey continued and he won a bronze at the prestigious Chemistry Cup in Germany. One of his greatest achievements in 2018 was winning the light flyweight gold at the Asian Games which he followed up with another glittering gold at the Strandja Cup in early 2019.
One of the shortest and lightest among male boxers, Panghal, given the way he has dealt with his opponents, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to say that the turk is surely the best bet for a gold at the upcoming Asian Championships.
