Around Town: Rizvi to sponsor collegiate boxing

The curtain is set to go up on the Inter-Collegiate Boxing Competition (men and women) from today (Dec 6) at the Rizvi College of Arts, Science and Commerce. Around 300 men and 25 women will don boxing gloves and take to the ring in the five-day boxing tournament sponsored by Rizvi College.

The College at Carter Road (Bandra) is already brimming with confidence as their men are the defending champions.

There will be eleven weight categories in the men's section, while the women's weight group will be decided at the last minute depending on the number of eligible boxers.

Unofficial weigh-ins will commence at 7am, followed by official weigh-ins and medicals at 8am at Rizvi College.

"We are expecting a good crowd on all the days," said Rajesh Sonawane, Sports in-charge at Rizvi College.

"I'm sure home support will play a crucial role in giving our boxers that extra edge," he added.
