PUNE, May 30: British boxing star Amir Khan-backed Super Boxing League picked four Indian boxers for its second edition after trials in the city’s Psycho Boxing and MMA Club.
The competition was conducted across four weight categories for men and one for women.
Rahul Tiwari won the featherweight category, while Shubham Bonakudkewar was picked in the welterweight division. The middle and super middle-weight slots were taken by Sohail Rangila and Siddhant Bagwe respectively.
The women’s lightweight category was clinched by Shruti Shinde, the organisers said in a statement.
The trials saw each bout with two rounds of three minutes in which boxers were judged on the basis of their aggression, ring control, fitness, technique, footwork and boxer’s chin (ability to take a hit). – PTI
