Indian Boxers on Exposure Trips to Italy, Ireland and Korea
Indian boxers are currently on an exposure tour to Italy, Ireland and Korea as part of their preparation for the upcoming tournaments, including the World Championships to be held later in the year.
A bilateral training camp and series of friendly matches were held against the Italian team, while top boxers are undergoing training in Belfast currently along with boxers from six top European nations as part of the 15-day long exposure trip which will end on 12 June.
Asian Games gold medallist Amit Panghal said:
"We are closely working with the coaches and working to improve and develop our game physically and mentally," added Amit, who won the gold medallist at India Open recently.
Another team of 35 boxers, comprising 20 men and 15 women pugilists, are currently in Incheon, Korea for a week-long joint training camp.
With major boxing championships coming up next month in Thailand and Indonesia, these exposure opportunities will be critical for India's medal-winning hopes.
