The Indian boxing contingent is eyeing to further add more to their 37-medal-tally at Birmingham in the XXII CWG 2022.

Shivaji Bhonsle was the first Indian to win a boxing medal at the Commonwealth Games in 1970 at Edinburgh, since then India has won a total of 37 medals so far in CWG boxing events including 8 golds. An unforgettable moment was created by Mary Kom when she became the first Indian women boxer to secure a gold medal in the 2018 Gold Coast CWG.

In the women’s four-member boxing team for CWG, Nikhat Zareen is ready with her impressive form after becoming the World Champion. A huge setback to the Indian boxing team as Mary Kom will be missing the Birmingham games due to an injury. This means that the young chaps, including Olympic bronze medalist Lovlina Borgohain, will have to put their best punch forward in the arena.

On the men’s side, Amit Panghal and Shiva Thapa will perform to their fullest. Both were selected from the current crop of boxers after their successes in the national trials at Patiala. Olympian Amit Panghal is ready to convert his silver from Gold Coast into gold at Birmingham.

About boxing sport

-- Advertisement --

Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, wearing protective boxing gloves and protective equipment like hand wraps and mouthguards, hit punches on each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring.

Boxing first made its first appearance during Olympic events in the 23rd Olympiad (688 BCE), but fist-fighting contests had their origin in mankind’s prehistory. The earliest evidence of rules for this sport comes from ancient Greece. There are a few ways to win in boxing events. First by way of a knockout, which is when a fighter is punched and falls to the ground and is unable to get back up within ten seconds. The other way is by a technical knockout, which is when the fighter can’t continue fighting until the referee stops the fight and picks the winner by hand.
