...
It was a fantastic clash between two very evenly matched boxers but in the end, it was the defence of Amit that proved to be the difference as Carlo Paalam has to settle for BRONZE. Now it will be India vs Uzbekistan in the battle for GOLD in the Men's Light Fly 49kg.
...

This is how the judges scored this oh, so tight bout.

Close but no cigar for Carlo Paalam
...
Amit goes through the final after winning 3-2.
...
Entertaining, enthralling and engrossing till the end. Who will progress to the final?
...
And it is Amit who lands the last few punches but it was a very, very close fight.
...
It was all boiling up to the perfect crescendo but now there is just time for one big shot.
...
The ref asks for him to get that right. Now just 10 seconds left.
...
Just 30 seconds left and the tape on Paalam's gloves are loose.
...
Amit knows that he needs to do more if he wants to force a win and after he lands a perfect punch to the side, the Indian crowd erupt.
...
It has swung back and forth so far in the third round and has been an entertaining watch.
...
Paalam has been sloppy defensively and that always gives his opponents a chance and Amit needs to make that count.
...
Amit getting his groove back now. After hanging on in the first round, he is slowly coming into his own.
...
Amit goes on the defensive early but it is all about finishing strong. Who will manage to do that?
...
It is still Carlo Paalam's bout to lose. He has been simply sensational so far as the third and final round begins.
...
Paalam has thrown several outstanding punches so far but Amit has done far better in the second round.
...
There is a slight delay as Amit's laces are untied and he has to get them right before we can begin again. And that takes away some crucail momentum.
...
Just under a minute left in the second period and Amit is doing his best but Paalam continues to stay sharp.
...
Paalam has certainly got Amit out of his comfort zone and the Indian is having to work extra hard for every successful punch.
...
Both boxers now trying to put on a show and Paalam catches Amit with a good left hand with just under two minutes left in the second round.
...
And we are back underway for the second round. And this time Amit goes on the offensive early and it is Paalam who has to defend.
...
Amit has been extremely defensive so far in the first round but right towards the end, he finds a spring in his step and starts to attack a little more.
...
The referee has a few words with Amit, who is keen to just evade any punches and is keen on stick to the ropes.
...
Paalam continues to go on the offensive and Amit has to be content with just defending at the outset with just over a minute gone in the first period.
