BFI plans resumption of training from June 10; men, women to have joint camp in Patiala

The Boxing Federation of India plans to restart camp training for its Olympic-bound boxers from June 10, bringing both men and women together in Patiala amid strict COVID-19 safety guidelines which bar access to ring and human sparring for now. This was decided at a video conference between the Olympic-bound boxers, who have made the cut for the Tokyo Games, BFI Executive Director R K Sacheti, Vice-President Rajesh Bhandari, High performance Directors Santiago Nieva (men) and Raffaele Bergamasco (women), and chief national coaches C A Kuttappa (men) and Mohammed Ali Qamar (women). This is the plan going forward. Boxers were of the view that there is no substitute for formal training at the camp even though they have all done pretty well on their own so far, a federation official told PTI. The women (who train at Delhi s IG stadium) will also be training at NIS Patiala in a joint camp, he added. The nine boxers, who have qualified for the Tokyo Games are Amit Panghal (52kg), Manish
