Strong field in lightest weight
"It's been a tough competition in the 49 Kg for most of us. Earlier 2007 World Cadet Champion Sunil Kumar also used to play in the 49 Kg category and it was even tougher. At one championship, I would win, then Sunil would win at other and Nanao would also win," says Amandeep who scored a 10-4 win over Lal Chand Shaw of West Bengal to move into the quarters. Amandeep however says the competition is a good thing. "Whatever happened made us work hard. At the national camp, all of us train hard and there is rivalry only at the ring. Off the ring, we roam together, cook food together and spar together. Whenever we face any problem in training, we discuss with each other," said the CWG bronze medallist Amandeep Singh.
That the three boxers brought out the best in each other is seconded by Nanao
