For the first time since the Tokyo Olympics last year, top Indian boxers Amit Panghal and Ashish Kumar will be seen in action at the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament 2022 in Phuket starting Friday.

The Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament will conclude on April 10. India have named 15 boxers – eight men and seven women – for the meet.

World championships silver medallist Amit Panghal (52kg) will compete in his pet weight category. However, Ashish Kumar, who won gold in 75kg at the last edition of the Thailand Open in 2019, will fight in the 81kg weight class.

Both the boxers were part of the national camp in Patiala and will look to hit form before Asian Games in September where Amit Panghal will enter the continental event as the defending champion in the 52kg.

Among women boxers, Manisha Moun (57kg) will participate in the meet. The young pugilist has already booked her place at the women’s world championships in May and Asian Games through national trials held earlier this month.

In the last edition of the Thailand Open, held in 2019, the Indian contingent signed off with eight medals—one gold, four silver and three bronze.

The tournament will see 130 boxers — 74 men and 56 women — from Asia, Europe, Oceania and Africa competing.
