NEW DELHI: India’s boxing fans are in for a rich treat of professional boxing, with the country all set to host two back to back matches in World Series of Boxing (WSB) during this weekend.

The Indian Tigers will take on the Patriot Boxing team which hails from Russia and the China Dragons on April 21 and 22 respectively, in what promises to be an exciting fare of differing styles and techniques.

This is the second home leg and the Tigers will seek redemption against the Russian franchisee after their trips to Kazakhstan and Russia, in their away games, failed to yield any positive response. They will aim to take full advantage of the home conditions and ride on the local support.

The team will have the full service of its best players, right from experienced pugilists to acclaimed stars to a dash of young blood too, which could prove to be a lethal combination.

Leading India’s charge against the Patriot’s on Saturday will be AIBA World Championship bronze medallist and star boxer Shiva Thapa (60 kg). 

He marks his return to the squared ring through the professional format of boxing and will hope to lead his team’s charge.
