The Indian boxing contingent is heading to the Tokyo Olympics 2021 and a rich medal haul is expected from the Indian pugilists. The boxing team has a good blend of youth and experience heading into the Games.

At 38, Olympic bronze medalist MC Mary Kom is the oldest boxer in the Indian team, while Lovlina Borgohain is the youngest member of the boxing squad aged just 23. Amit Panghal is the highest ranked boxer within the team. He is world number 1 in his weight category.

Nine Indian boxers have qualified for the Tokyo Olympics 2021. They are:

Amit Panghal (Men's Flyweight: 52kg), Manish Kaushik (Men's Lightweight: 63kg), Vikas Krishnan (Men's Welterweight: 69kg), Ashish Kumar (Men's Light Heavyweight: 75kg), Satish Kumar (Men's Heavyweight: 91kg), MC Mary Kom (Women's Flyweight: 51kg), Pooja Rani (Women's Middleweight: 75kg), Simranjit Kaur (Women's Lightweight: 60kg) and Lovlina Borgohain (Women's Welterweight: 69kg).

The Indian boxing team is certainly one to watch out for at Tokyo's Kokugikan Arena.
