IBC mulls increased 'regional cooperation' for Pro Boxing
The event, conducted under IBC's supervision, titled ''Xcel South Asian Pro Boxing Fight Night – The Ultimate Glory'' featured 6 fights with boxers from three countries – Bangladesh, India, and Nepal.
''Indian Pro Boxers have started featuring more prominently in the Asian circuit in the last few years, but the leap from being a National Champion to being an Asian Champion is very steep,'' President of IBC, Brigadier PKM Raja, who is in Dhaka, said.
Countries like the Philippines, Korea, China, and Indonesia have had a long stint in the sport and naturally dominate the Asian Rankings. ''A regional union with our neighbors in Bangladesh, Nepal, Afghanistan, and even Pakistan will assist in ushering a whole new window of opportunities for our boxers,'' Raja said.
