In a highly-anticipated repeat of the Asian Games 49kg final, Amit Panghal (52kg) knocked out the reigning Olympic gold medallist Hasanboy Dusmatov, while Kavinder Singh Bisht (56kg) stunned 2017 world champion Kairat Yeraliyev confirming four medals for India at the Asian Boxing Championships 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand, on Monday.

In the fourth career meeting between Pangha and Dusmatov, the Strandja Cup gold medallist made it two in a row over Dusmatov with a deadly 4-1 blow to lay his hands on his second medal from this competition after a bronze in 2017. 

Meanwhile, the Uttarakhand pugilist Kavinder Singh Bisht (56kg) dug deep to see off 2017 world champion Kairat Yeraliyev of Kazakhstan 3-2 in a hard-fought match. The win over the two-time Asian Championships bronze medallist secured Bisht his maiden medal from this high-profile continental event.

Sonia Chahal, 21, of Haryana showed a lot of maturity and calmness in her 3-2 win over Korea’s Jo Son Hwa. 

National champion Deepak (49kg) did not even have to enter the ring as he was given a walkover by Afghanistan’s Ramish Rahmani due to injury.
