The JSW Sports’ Inspire Institute of Sports has become the first privately owned Institute to host a national women’s boxing championship.
The Inspire Institute of Sports which was earlier inaugurated in August 2018 by Olympic gold medalist Shooter Abhinav Bindra is hosting the national championship event which is running here from December 31st till January 6th, 2019.
The Boxing federation of India also hosted a pre-Asian games conditioning for men’s and women’s team at the same venue.
The championship event will see more than 300 of the India’s best female boxer aged between 19 and 40, across 10 weight categories.
Highlighting the importance of the nationals, Boxing Federation of India President Ajay Singh said,” As a Federation when we took charge in 2016, our vision was to first restore the lost glory of Indian boxing and work towards making India, a boxing Powerhouse. The Girls have paved the way for us and very soon you will see more defining moments in Indian boxing.”
