Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Great result. Great skills displayed. I see the next women's boxing star in her! :bounce: Much inspite my apprehension, she actually dominated the local Kazakh boxer for most of it.

Re: Indian Boxing Thread

To make it worse, Sarita Devi also lost :-( While she was leading after the 1st two rounds, it was very clear from Round 3 that she was tired and struggling.

Re: Destination Dubai World Superseries Finals

Re: Indian Wrestling Thread ...

As far as i can see from past matches, sushil has always competed in 66 kg catgeory. Has he changed to 74 kg now? that would be quite a big (8 kg) change.

Re: Hockey @ Commonwealth Game

yes, i saw that referral bit and was surprised they rejected it. the player was clearly within 5m and even the commentators, who were quite sure about it, were shocked it wasn't given. this would not be relevant in the Asian Games. let's hope we continue our improvements and clinch the Gold! :goodlu...

Re: Commonwealth games 2014, Glasgow,Scotland - 23 July -3 A

1 common issue i saw in both bouts was our boxers ran out of gas. it seems like while the hockey players are getting better, the boxers are getting poorer in stamina. i think we need a foreign coach here as well!!!
