India - Australia boxers to participate in joint training exercises

Ending almost four years of uncertainty, Boxing Federation of India (BFI) President Ajay Singh said on Thursday that the country's boxers will get an opportunity to test themselves when the Australian teams (both men and women) arrive here in February to participate in a training-cum-competition event.

"We had invited the Australian team and they have accepted our invitation to come in February. Before that the women's team will be going to Serbia for a competition," Singh told reporters after Assam Chief Minister Sorbananda Sonowal declared the senior men's national championships open at the Sarusajai Indoor Stadium in Guwahati.


Shiva Thapa in fine form on Opening Day of National Boxing Championship

Birthday boy and local favourite Shiva Thapa's thumping 5-0 win over Arunachal Pradesh's Gumin Gara in the opening bout of the senior men's National Championship was the lone highlight on Thursday, which was marred by several incidents of mismanagement by the organisers.

While the second bout started as late as 6 p.m., the organisers claimed that the delay was due to the late participation of four uninvited teams, taking the total number of teams to 37, while some other teams had to battle fog and a tragic accident near the Assam-Bengal border on Tuesday night.
