After losing the opportunity to hit the Olympic medal this year, he is not happy, though it’s a huge honour to get awarded with the AIBP. As a result, he is the first Indian boxer to get such an award and has taken the boxing to the next level.
So, India is again thankful to these sports persons for bringing awards to the nation after PV Sindhu hit gold at China Open Series last week.
