Amit Panghal once again nominated for Arjuna award
Asian Games 2018 gold medal-winning Indian boxer Amit Panghal was on Tuesday designated for Arjuna award by the Boxing Federation of India.
Amit, who asserted the light flyweight (49kg) classification gold subsequent to vanquishing reigning Olympic hero Hasanboy Dusmatov of Uzbekistan in the Asiad last at Jakarta, was designated a year ago too for the second most noteworthy brandishing honor after the Khel Ratna.
Notwithstanding, he was not considered because of a fizzled dope test in 2012, for which he served a one-year boycott.
He began the year with a gold at Strandja commemoration competition in Bulgaria before climbing to 52kg. He secured a gold in his new weight classification in the Asian title, beating Dusmatov once more.
BFI has designated Panghal once more in the wake of thinking about his astounding exhibitions this year.
