India’s moment on the final night of the Asian Boxing Championships came from Sanjeet, who managed to defeat 5-time Asian Championships medallist and Rio Olympic silver medallist Vassiliy Levit of Kazakhstan, in 91kg to win gold in Dubai on Monday.  (Sports News)

Meanwhile India lost two close fights as 52kg world No 1 Amit Panghal and Shiva Thapa (64kg) settled for silver.

India's protest against defending champion Amit Panghal's 2-3 loss in the 52kg category finals was rejected by the jury.
Panghal lost 2-3 to Uzbekistan's Shakhobidin Zoirov, his third loss in a major event.  

 "The Boxing Federation of India tweeted that it is contesting the second round being awarded India has contested the R2 decision of the spilt verdict  2-3 and surprise loss of @Boxerpanghal in the finals of ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships in Dubai against reigning World & @Olympics champion S Zoirov," the BFI tweeted.

The federation later updated the tweet to say that the "protest lodged by Indian Team had not been accepted by the Jury Commission."

Earlier in the tournament, Indian boxer Sakshi Choudhary (54kg) had lost her final spot after her rival, top-seeded Kazakh Dina Zholaman successfully challenged the narrow victory that the two-time youth world champion had clinched in the last-four stage.
 
The bout review system was introduced by the International Boxing Association (AIBA) in 2019. 

Vikas Krishan (69kg) and Varinder Singh (60kg) secured bronze medals in the men’s section with their semi-final finish.

On Sunday, Indian women's boxing team finished with one gold, three silver and six bronze medals in Dubai. Overall, this has been India's best showing at the Asian boxing championships. India's previous best haul was 13 medals (2 gold, 4 silver and 7 bronze) in the 2019 edition.

Monday's final clash between Panghal vs Shakhobidin is like a Tokyo Olympics dress rehearsal.

Shakhobidin is the defending world and Olympic champion and now has a 3-0 win-loss record against Panghal. The Indian had earlier lost in the 2019 world championships and more recently at the Governor's Cup in Russia.

Olympic-bound defending champion Pooja Rani (75kg) was the lone Indian to clinch a gold, while Mary Kom settled for silver along with Lalbuatsaihi (64kg) and Anupama (+81kg).
