Indian boxer Mandeep Jangra won his third professional fight by technical knockout (TKO) against resident Brandon Sandoval in Plant City, Florida. Indian boxer Mandeep Jangra, who turned pro last year, is on a winning streak in his debut and second bout last year, starting a pro fight in Florida. Now three games unbeaten after winning his third match since Mandeep Jangra was last seen last August when he beat USA’s Devon Lira via TKO to win his second professional game. The 28-year-old Indian boxer is unbeaten in his two career fights, beating Argentine fighter Luciano Ramos by unanimous decision for the first time in four rounds and defeating Lira via TKO in August.
Angry Australian welterweight Daniel Lewis blamed the International Amateur Boxing Association’s controversial decision last year to ditch headgear. It wasn’t a smooth transition as India’s Jangra was on the right track in the first round, and he had to fight hard for the remaining three rounds to make a decision. The professional Julio has been largely inactive since then, and this fight was only his fourth fight in a decade. Angry Aussie Daniel Lewis fought two fights, two comfortable TKO wins, and a silly elbow bump ruined everything.
Overall, only four Indian boxers have won medals at the Asian Games since women’s boxing debuted in 2010. Mary Kom, a six-time world champion only targeting the Commonwealth Games of the Year, is the only Indian boxer to achieve gold at the Asian Games. She won gold in Incheon in 2014 after bronze in Guangzhou in 2010.
Olympic bronze medalist Loveline Borgohain became the third Indian boxer to win an Olympic medal last year, joining an exclusive club including Vijendra Singh (2008, Beijing) and MC Mary Kom (2012, London). India’s Jangra was a gold medal at the South Asian Games and won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games but did not qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. After a very successful amateur career, India’s Jangra turned pro.
Ahil Kumar is one of five Indian boxers who have been represented by the World Series of Boxing franchise in Delhi, and his lucrative three-year contract will be more than enough.

Since his professional boxing debut, Kamal has also managed Assad Asif Khan’s fights as a manager.
Pro boxing manager Mujtaba Kamal manages some of India’s top professional boxers such as Sabari J, Kartik S, Faizan Anwar, Lalrinsanga Tau, Gurpreet Singh, etc. All over the world, professional boxing is a billion-dollar industry in which everyone can earn money: a boxer, a promoter, a coach.
