Previous records of India boxer
Amit made a mark by winning bronze at the 2017 Asian championships and a gold at Grand Prix Usti nad Labem.
Medals at Strandja (gold), Commonwealth Games (silver), Chemistry Cup (bronze) and Asian Games (gold) in 2018 and Strandja (gold), Asian championships (gold) and the World championships (silver) in 2019 elevated the boxer’s status. He was the first Indian male to achieve a Worlds silver.
His early exit at the Olympics disappointed Panghal, who looks to redeem some pride at the Commonwealth Games.
Earlier today, the women quartet won their semi-final game against New Zealand and reached their maiden finals.
