    Amit Panghal on winning gold:

    "I had lost to him (Hasanboy Dusmatov) before, so I had to take revenge. Coach Santiago (Nieva) and other coaches had prepared me well. In the semifinal, I did not play the first round well, here I did not repeat that mistake."

    "The coach asked me get him on counter-attack. The training in England and at the camp in India helped. I had sparred with southpaw boxers at both places. I knew how to take advantage of the upper cut."

    AMIT PANGHAL WINS GOLD IN MEN'S 49 KG BOXING VIA SPLIT DECISION!

    Terrific show by Amit Panghal to counteract the speed and velocity of the reigning Olympic Champion Hasanboy Dusmatov.

    Asian Games 2018 Day 14 Live: Boxing

    3rd Round: A right hook from Dusmatov and it is followed by a charge up front from Amit with a combination movement. Good block from Amit as Dusmatov attempts to get a few jabs. Amit is now retracing - he feels he has this one in the bag. He is not engaging right now, smart tactics from Amit. It is Dusmatov who is trying to get inside, because he needs to win points.

    Asian Games 2018 Day 14 Live: Boxing

    2nd Round: Amit enters inside looking to land a left hook but Dusmatov continues to retrace his step backwards. A few combination of left-and-right from Dusmatov but Amit blocks and the referee separates the two. Amit Panghal looking dominant at the moment, but he gets a left hook on his face fro, Dusmatov. Dusmatov, under pressure, like a true champion is responding. Amit lands a sharp left punch on Dusmatov's face and Dusmatov is furious.

    The 2nd round appears to go to Amit. Clearly. It seems India could be heading for a gold here.

    Asian Games 2018 Day 14 Live: Boxing

    1st Round: A cautious start for Amit in the 1st round. But a  positive one from him. Blioocking the combos of Dusmatov with his right and left. Dusmatov continuing to jab in and out but Amit is maintaining his distance. Amit lands a left hook on Dusmatov's ear. That should build some confidence. 

    Good build-up. Hard to judge. Looks like Amit gets the first round, but only just. Still, the Indian would feel he can do this now.
