India’s elite boxers K Shyam Kumar (49kg), Naman Tanwar (91kg) and Satish Kumar (+91kg) starred in the Galym Zharylgapov Boxing Tournament here on Sunday, clinching gold medals in their respective categories.

The team’s first gold came through Shyam Kumar, who simply didn’t give any chance to local boy, Turkbay.  He punched his way to glory, to set the ball rolling for India. Asian Games bronze medalist Satish Kumar (+91kg) then steamrolled past Baeshev to bring home the team’s second gold.

Manish (60kg) and Mandeep (75kg) also put up stellar shows to pocket a silver and a bronze medal each to give the country another rich haul of five medals in an international tournament.

Nineteen-year-old Naman (91kg), however, towered over everybody as he not only won the gold but also earned himself the accolade of being the ‘best boxer’ of the tournament.

The Indian team finished the competitive tournament which had 154 boxers in fray which included five international teams and 15 local teams with three golds, silver and a bronze apiece.
