Amit’s boxing journey has been a tough one. The financial condition of the family wasn’t good and both Amit and his elder brother, Ajay wanted to pursue boxing. Amit used to borrow gloves from his friends in order to practice. Ajay eventually gave up his ambitions when he joined the Indian Army to realize Amit’s boxing dreams.
Amit won the gold medal in his debut appearance at the National Boxing Championships in 2017 and then went on to win bronze at the 2017 Asian Boxing Championship. He became the first Indian boxer to win silver medal at the 2019 World Boxing Championship. All he wants now is to win a medal at the Olympics for the country.
