Indian boxers to train in Cuba for Commonwealth Games

Aiming to improve their endurance level, sharpen skills and become psychologically tougher ahead of the Commonwealth Games, 13 Indian boxers will leave for Cuba tomorrow for a training-cum-competition trip after a gap of more than three years.

Olympic and World Championship bronze medallist Vijender Singh has, however, decided to skip the April 19 to May 8 trip due to a nose injury he picked up during the Commonwealth Championships here last month.

With the world number one Indian opting out, the contingent for Cuba does not feature any middle weight (75kg) boxer.

Those who would be going to Cuba include Commonwealth Games gold medallist Akhil Kumar (57kg) and Commonwealth Championships gold medallists Suranjoy Singh (51g), Amandeep Singh (48kg), Jai Bhagwan (60kg), Dinesh Kumar (81kg) and Paramjeet Samota (+91kg).

"Training in Cuba will help. It is the toughest tour to endure but a very rewarding one."
