Indian boxing team along with Mary Kom reaches Dubai for ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships

The Boxing Federation of India (BFI) took to Twitter to inform that the Indian boxing team landed safely in Dubai and set for the upcoming ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships.

On Saturday, May 22, the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) took to Twitter to inform that the Indian boxing team landed safely in Dubai and set for the upcoming ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships. The tournament starts on Monday with the draws lined up for Sunday. 

Boxers including MC Mary Kom and Amit Panghal reached Dubai to clash in the Asian Boxing Championships in an “air-bubble” flight. They had to stay in mid-air longer than schedule as some administrative paperwork delayed its landing. As quoted by PTI, “There was some confusion regarding the approval letter for the trip which was eventually sorted thanks to the intervention of the Indian Embassy in the UAE. The flight took a while to land but the boxers have now reached their hotel.”

The tournament starts on Monday with the draws lined up for Sunday. It is the only major competition that the boxers will get before the July-August Olympics given the COVID-19 restrictions in place around the globe.
