World Championship silver medalist Amit Panghal secured India's fifth Paris Olympics 2024 quota in boxing as he defeated China's Chuang Liu in the 51kg quarterfinals of the 2nd World Qualification Tournament in Bangkok on Sunday. The Indian boxer managed a hard-fought 5-0 win over the Chinese opponent to win India's second male boxing quota for the upcoming Olympics. 

Panghal had to make a solid comeback in the second round after being down on 4 cards in the first round of the match. This will be the second Olympics participation for the former World No. 1.

For Panghal, the 2018 Asian Games and 2022 Commonwealth Games Champion, this was his last chance to secure a birth for the Olympics as he lost against world championship bronze medallist Deepak Bhoria in the selection trials and could not appear in the earlier two qualifying events.
