JalandharLPU played successful host to three days of action packed boxing for 14th Senior State Women Boxing Championship at its campus. Emerging women boxers of the state exhibited power of their hooks and punches in 54 bouts for ten weight categories.  Out of 70 boxers who competed from all the parts of the state, 10 were honoured with Gold Medals.  These ‘First’ position earners in all of the ten weight categories of the competition will continue vying for national titles at 14th Senior Women National Boxing Championship-2013, to be held in Khatima, Uttarakhand, from 18 to 23 May 2013. The Chief Guest of the day Mrs Anita Som Parkash along with LPU Vice Chancellor Dr Ramesh Kanwar and Director General Er HR Singla honoured the illustrious women-boxers with medals and certificates.

Manpreet Kaur of Patiala got declared the Best Boxer and Baljit Kaur of Kapurthala-A as the Best Loser, being just devoid of winning gold medal on technical grounds. Both of them were given cash prizes by the President of Sardar Bawa Singh Johal Boxing Academy, Phagwara.


Congratulating coveted position holders at the Championship, Mrs Som Parkash inspired more and more girls to adopt this sport for their self defence also. Taking the example of the best woman boxer of the country Mary Kom, VC LPU Dr Kanwar motivated the women boxers to devote themselves to the core to bring more glory to the nation through their national and international wins. Illustrative, the Championship was organised by District Boxing Association Kapurthala under the auspices of Punjab Boxing Association (PBA).


Many other boxers from Sangrur, Bathinda, Amritsar, Hoshiarpur, Muktsar, Ropar, Fazilka and other areas of the state exhibited their fist-powers to win II and III positions. On contacting the best boxer Ms Manpreet, she assured that she will not only bring laurels to the state during national competition but also reach international arena to gather many medals for the country. Best loser Ms Baljit said: “I was sure to go ahead. Somehow I could not succeed this time, however I will continue practicing to show my worth next year. One thing more which I want to share is that LPU is a great university to promote such activities. I have never and nowhere else seen such arrangements and co-operation prior to this.”
