The six-time world champion boxer Mary Kom has credited Boxing Federation of India’s (BFI) president Ajay Singh for the “remarkable performances” of the boxers from the country at the global stage in the recent years.
Kom has recently joined the national camp and begun training for the final phase of comeback ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games. “Ajay Singh has stood by all the players, their needs and requirements. In my long stint in boxing, he probably is the only administrator who has wholeheartedly only thought good for Indian boxing and the boxers, right from the juniors to the elites. Support like that gets the best out of the players and you can see that from the remarkable performances boxers have produced in the last four years,” Kom said, in a statement, on the sidelines of her training.
With consistent opportunities for boxers to excel in the sport in the last four years, including participation in the highest-ever 80 international tournaments and exposure trips, the Indian team has seen rising in the Top-10 in the world ranking and also ranked third in Asia.
