Aman Sehrawat, after the final victory, said,

“I came here for the gold. There was no other ranking position I wanted to settle for. I made two mistakes in the final. I did watch Almaz’s bouts before the final and figured that he relies a lot on counters. But I rushed to score. I thought to myself that I don’t get tired easily so I kept trying to score. In the process, I got countered twice. After that, I put my head down and focused.”

This was the second podium finish of 2023 for Aman Sehrawat, who had bagged a bronze at the Zagreb Open earlier this year. Sehrawat also won the U-23 World Championships last year.
