This achievement follows the outstanding Gold Medal victories by Kavin Kopperunko and Ayan Akef, bringing Team India's total tally in the Youth A, B, and C categories to 2 Gold Medals and 2 Bronze Medals.

Hailing from Kashmir, Zaid Shabir made a strong impact by securing a unanimous decision win against Humaid Al Ali of the UAE in the first round. This victory propelled him into the semi-finals, where he faced Dmitriy Zhizhin of Kazakhstan. Although Zaid couldn't secure a win in the semi-finals, his impressive performance throughout the championship earned him a well-deserved bronze medal.
