Dusmatov is in all kinds of pressure here as Amit has been great in every round so far.
...
Amit has been brilliant at evading punches that aren't from up close and he has been doing that all game long.

Dusmatov needs to get closer and with just a minute left, he isn't looking so great so far.

But with less than 90 seconds left, it is the Indian who has the upper hand.

For once, Dusmatov, has not been able to get the better of Amit tactically.

That was incredibly sharp from Amit but he has to wait and bide his time.

But the Uzbekistan boxer knows that he has plenty of time in his hands and is slowly kicking into top gear.

Dusmatov is having a few problems and Amit has dominated so far from close quarters.

We are now less than 15 minutes away from the bout. Will it be Uzbekistan or India who walk away with the GOLD?
...
While Hasanboy Dusmatov has been absolutely clinical in each bout so far and has stormed his way to the final, Amit had a slight scare in the semi-final after cruising till then. But both boxers will need to be on their A-game if they are to walk away with the GOLD.

Boxing has exactly gone according to plan for India at the Asian Games 2018. Vikas Krishnan, who was one of the favorites to claim the GOLD, had to settle for Bronze after he was deemed medically unfit to take part in his semi-final bout. 

Aside from that, India haven't got another medal in the sport although that will change after Amit Panghal's bout, which will be India's last attempt to claim a medal in boxing at the Asian Games 2018.
...
India already have 65 medals so far at the Asian Games 2018. That equals their best-ever medals tally at the Games, which they previously achieved at the Asian Games 2010 in Guangzhou. With two medals, one of them in boxing, already assured, India will have their highest-ever tally. But how many will they finish with eventually?

Here is a look at where India stand at the Asian Games 2018 Medal Tally.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Men's Light Fly 49kg Final between India's Amit Panghal and Uzbekistan's Hasanboy Dusmatov.
...
The final of the Men's Light Fly 49kg at the Asian Games 2018 between India's Amit Panghal and Uzbekistan's Hasanboy Dusmatov will take place at 12.30 PM IST.
...
As we head into the final day of the Asian Games 2018, India have already equaled their best ever medal tally at an Asian Games. With 65 medals already in the bag and a couple of more assured, India will be looking to break another record as they go searching for three more golds to break their record of most GOLD medals at an Asian Games.

India are currently in eighth place at the Asian Games 2018 Medal Tally and enjoyed an incredible run in Athletics where they finished with 19 medals, including seven GOLD, 10 Silver and two Bronze medals. In no other sport have then won more than two GOLDs, which speaks volumes about their domination in Athletics.

On the final day of action at the Asian Games, India will be looking to add to their medal tally and the games on a high. Although this has been a slightly disappointing showing from India in Boxing, where going into the final day, they only have one medal to their name, India have a chance to finish with GOLD.

A gold medal is up for grabs in the men's light fly 49kg category as India's Amit Panghal takes on Uzbekistan's Hasanboy Dusmatov in the final. Although Amit is assured of at least Silver already, he will be hoping to finish with a flourish and end India's campaign in Boxing at the Asian Games 2018 on a high.
