Tweeted by AIR
World silver-medallist Amit Panghal has been ranked number one in the 52 kilogram category for Olympic Qualifiers, making him the first Indian pugilist in over a decade to achieve the global top position in the category. The list was released by the International Olympic Committee's Boxing Task Force today ahead of next month's Olympic Qualifiers. The rankings took into account the last two world championships for both men and women and the continental championships and Games in 2019. The diminutive boxer from Rohtak said, he is hopeful of securing an Olympic spot in the first qualifier itself.

The 24-year-old Panghal holds the numero uno position with 420 points, right now. Last year, he became the first Indian to claim a silver medal at the world championships after notching up a gold at the Asian meet.
