Haryana Boxers Dominate Ring In National Boxing Championship


Indian boxing’s revival is underway in full swing. After two years of uncertainty over their future, Indian men took to the ring in the 6oth National Championship in Nagpur. It was the first time that the National Championship was held under the flag of the recently christened Boxing India. After great success of the First Monnet National Steel Elite Women’s Championship that was held last year, the Men’s National Boxing Championship proved to be a huge success as well.

Boxers Turn Up In Large Numbers

Boxers had definitely been anticipating this for a long time. Now that the event was finally underway, boxers registered to compete in a large number. Over 235 boxers from the 34 BI affiliated units and 3 boards were in contention for the title in seven weight categories. It was not only the title that was up for grabs. The National Boxing Championship also served as qualification for National Games starting January 31 in Kerala.

Superstars skip event

While the enthusiasm was evident in all boxers, some big names remained absent. Olympic bronze-medalist Vijender Singh chose to skip the event while Asian Champion Shiva Thapa was on a sick leave as well. Another big name missing from the tournament was senior Pro Akhil Kumar while Devendro Singh and Gaurav Bidhuri were sparring it out at the World Series of Boxing.

In their absence, the spotlight was put on Olympians Manoj Kumar and Sumit Sangwan. Glasgow Commonwealth games’ Silver medalist Mandeep Jangra was also boxing for the title in the welterweight category.
