After winning the semi-finals, Amit Panghal admitted that his rival Kazakhstan Kasakhobidin Zirov was an unknown figure in the final. He said that my opponent in the semi-finals was very long, but he lacked as much power as me. Amit Panghal has so far won a bronze in the Asian Championship (2017), silver in the Commonwealth Games (2018) and gold in the Asian Championship (2019) and Asian Games (2018) in his career.
He said that my opponent in the final is an unknown figure. I have never encountered him before and I only have old videos to assess him. Let me tell you that Shakhobidin Zirov won the gold medal in the 52 kg weight category in the 2016 Olympics.
