The 2nd edition of the Indian Open Boxing Tournament will be held in February 5-9
The second edition of the strong Indian Open International Boxing Tournament will be held for the elite women and men boxers in the city of Guwahati in February 2019. The competition will be a parallel event with the prestigious Bocskai Memorial Tournament but the local organizers are expecting record number of participants to Guwahati.
The first competition day of the Indian Open International Boxing Tournament is February 5 while the finals are scheduled in Guwahati on February 9. Guwahati hosted the 2017 edition of the AIBA Women’s Youth World Boxing Championships 13 months ago where India earned record number of five gold medals. Guwahati is the host again in a top international competition and Assam region’s biggest city is ready to welcome Asia’s top boxers.
The first edition of the Indian Open International Boxing Tournament was held in New Delhi in January 2018 which was a preparation event for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Altogether 18 champions have been crowned in the historical first edition in New Delhi. India achieved eight gold medals in the tournament but Uzbekistan was able to get also five titles in the Open Tournament where several surprises were delivered by young hopes.
India’s female stars attended in the New Delhi 2018 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships where four of their boxers won medals and among them their icon Chungneijang Mary Kom Hmangte won her sixth gold. India’s living legend will be boxing in her homeland in Guwahati and her presence guarantees the native promotion of the Indian Open International Boxing Tournament.
India’s men’s elite boxers won gold medals in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and one title in the Jakarta 2018 Asian Games. Mr. Santiago Nieva’s team developed well and new possible stars joined to the squad such as Gaurav Solanki (52kg), Mohammed Etash Khan (56kg), Manish Kaushik (60kg) and Sanjeet (91kg).
