The silver here marks a new high for the boxer from Rohtak, who has been simply unstoppable since breaking into the national scene with a bronze in the 2017 Asian Championships.

The second-seeded Panghal became the first Indian male boxer to finish second in the world event and the country achieved its best-ever medal haul of two. Manish Kaushik (63kg) had signed off with a bronze earlier, after losing in the semifinals.

Panghal lost 0-5 but the scoreline was hardly a reflection of the fight he put on against the more fancied Zoirov.

Indian boxer Amit Panghal's phenomenal campaign in the men's world championships ended with a silver medal after he went down to Olympic champion Shakhobidin Zoirov of Uzbekistan in an intense 52kg category final at Ekaterinburg, Russia.

Ravi Dahiya was up against Reza Ahmadali Atrinagharchi, the reigning Asian champion from Iran, and capped his stunning debut with a 6-3 win in the bronze medal bout.

This was India's third medal of the championships -- all bronze. Vinesh Phogat had also won a bronze in women's 53 kg event.

Bajrang held off a spirited challenge from Ochir who had raced to a 6-0 lead but true to his style, Bajrang ruled the second period with a flurry of moves.

Bajrang was already India's only multiple-medallist at the Worlds and he consolidated his record with his narrow 8-7 win over Mongloia's Tulga Tumur Ochir, the under-23 Asian champion.

Shrugging off his controversial semifinal defeat, Bajrang Punia bagged his third World Championship medal while Ravi Dahiya made his debut memorable by grabbing a bronze.

After her bronze medal victory, Vinesh Phogat revealed to the media that he didn't follow the tactical orders of her coaching staff, but improvised during her bout.

In the 53kg category, Phogat had a poor start, losing to Mayu Mukaida.

She also qualified for 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Vinesh Phogat finally ended her medal drought in the World Wrestling Championships by pinning Maria Prevolaraki by fall in the bronze-medal bout.
