Indian boxers win six medals at 36th Feliks Stamm International Boxing

Indian boxers finished with a rich haul of six medals, including two gold at the 36th Feliks Stamm International Boxing Tournament in Warsaw, Poland on 05 May 2019.

Gaurav Solanki and Manish Kaushik bagged one gold each. Indian boxers also clinched a silver and three bronze. The 22-year-old Solanki out-punched England’s William Cawley 5-0 in 52 kilograms on his way to the coveted yellow metal.

In the 60-kilogram weight category, Kaushik beat Morocco’s Mohamed Hamout 4-1. However, there was some disappointment for the Indian contingent on the final day of the European tournament as Mohammed Hussamuddin had to be content with yet another second-place finish following a 1-4 defeat to Russia’s Mukhammad Shekhov.

The six-day competition saw boxers from all over the world participating in 10 categories in the men’s section and in five categories in the women’s section as they gear up for the World Championships later in the year.
