The form that Amit expected was that he would give India the first gold in this tournament, but Joirev beat Amit with his best play. Amit, however, not afterwards. He faced the Uzbek player fiercely. He started in the same way he usually does. When he was defensive, he wanted to understand his opposition. He made the opening minutes like this. Joirev was also waiting for Amit’s mistake, they also took some punches. Amit’s shots didn’t seem to be in the right place, while Joirev took advantage of the right shot and gave some accurate shots.

Silver for AMIT!

Both players became aggressive in the second round. Amit was a bit busy, which Joirev took advantage of. The Uzbekistan player walked a distance from Amit and took the opportunity to counter and score points. Amit made an accurate strike from the left jab at the end of the round. Both players became more aggressive in the third round. During this period, they both also held on to each other in an attempt to strike blows, which the referee warned them about.

Amit became the first Indian male boxer to reach the final of the World Cup. Before Amit, four Indian male boxers won bronze in the World Championships, but now they have made history by winning silver and raising India’s level in the boxing world. Before him, Vijendra Singh made this feat in 2009, while Vikas Krishnan traveled to the semifinals in 2011 and Shiva Thapa in 2015. Apart from this, Gaurav Vidhuri won the bronze by reaching the semifinals in 2017, but he could not change the color of the Indians medal.
