Boxers win four gold in Serbia

New Delhi, Jul 16, 2013, IANS:

Young Indian men and women boxers came up with a fine show at the Golden Glove of Vojvodina - an international youth boxing tournament in Kikinda, Serbia - with scintillating performances in the finals. 

A Silambarasan (52kg) and Manish Solanki (69kg) in the men’s division and Rajesh Kumari (48kg) and Chanda Udanshive (51kg) in the women’s category clinched the Golden Glove title in their respective weight category on Sunday. 

Silambarasan, a 2012 Aglorav cup silver medallist, continued his top form in the tournament as he edged past Scotsman Stephen Boyle in the flyweight division. 


Welter-weight boxer Solanki also displayed great class as he defeated local boxer Stanojevic Lazar.

Youth World Championships bronze medal winner Prasad (49kg) and reigning national champion Neeraj Parashar (64kg) had to be content with a silver medal after losing the title bout. Prasad lost to Russian Perminov Ilia while Parashar came up short against Sam Ball from Scotland.

Among the women, 17-year-old Kumari (48kg) upstaged Bulgarian Poptoleva Valentina.
She was also bestowed with the “Best Technical Boxer” award of the tournament. 

Udanshive (51kg) upset Bulgarian boxer Buyuklieva Marina in fine fashion to win the gold in the fly weight category.
