India win four medals in International boxing tournament


Reigning junior national champion Aman Indora (56kg) clinched  gold as India finished third in the A Agalarov Cup youth boxing tournament in Baku, Azerbaijan. The 18-year-old defeated Uzbek boxer Abdujabbarov Azizbek 4-1 in the final to bag the top honours and that too in his very first international tournament.

A Silambarasan (52kg) and Kailash Gill (75kg) also made the final but had to settle for silver medals after losing to their respective opponents. Abhishek Beniwal (81kg) was the fourth Indian boxer to clinch a medal at the tournament — a bronze after losing in the round of four. Indora qualified for the finals after registering a brilliant victory over local lad Orkhan Aliyev of the Azerbaijan A team.

Out of the six Indian boxers that participated in the event, four were able to manage a podium finish.
