Boxing Champion Urvashi believes the government should support professional boxing in India.

“In this world, nothing is impossible; all you need is guts and perseverance.” This has been demonstrated by Thai national boxing champion Thanchanok Phanan, who was defeated by Indian star boxer Urvashi Singh in a 10-round contest to win the WBC International Boxing Championship.

“Difficulties are a part of life, but the winner is the one who battles against them and persistently achieves his goal.”

The WBC international super bantamweight title and WBC Asia silver were won by 27-year-old Indian boxer Urvashi Singh in Colombo when she defeated Thai national champion Thanchanok Phanan in a 10-round fight. Singh has emerged as a role model for women worldwide.

Thanchanok (12-5, 6 KO) was defeated by Urvashi (10-3, 6 KO) in a unanimous decision to claim the title of champion. She is also the first boxer from India to accomplish the same.

Indian boxing sensation Urvashi Singh says in an exclusive interview with India Today, “The fact that I have accomplished something notable for my country fills me with a great sense of pride. I hold the WBC Asia continental and worldwide champion titles first among Indians. I owe a debt of gratitude to my manager Roshan Sir, my promoter Dustin Paul Rozario, and the complete promotion team, without the help of whom it would have been challenging for me to achieve this.”

Urvashi sheds light on her path by saying, “I’m from Kanpur, but my family moved to Delhi when I was a toddler. I then continued my education at UP. In 2012, after completing my intermediate studies, I enrolled in Noida’s Physical Education College. I learned about boxing for the first time thanks to this. One of my seniors used to participate in boxing training, and after watching her, I decided that I also wanted to give it a try. I was a naughty and disobedient child since childhood and used to be at the forefront of fights.

“I began boxing training without telling my family. When I won the first gold medal at the State Championship in Meerut and the news was reported in the papers, my family then found out. Nobody was thrilled at home because, in their opinion, girls shouldn’t participate in this sport. But I persisted in my zeal with unwavering conviction. I then learned about the Roshan Team Academy in Delhi and contacted them, but I was denied training since there are no girls in his academy, I was told. After repeated requests and promises that I would live up to expectations, I eventually became the only female player in the academy among all the male players.”

Indian pro boxer Urvashi Singh wins two WBC titles

Urvashi Singh has won 50 medals to date, which is noteworthy. In the 2012 Youth Women’s Championship in Guwahati, she took home the first gold medal. While another Gold Medal was also won in 2013 in Bilaspur in the All India University Championship. The first Gold medal was won at the international competition held in Thailand in 2018. Currently, Urvashi is the only Indian to have won the WBC Asia Continental, WIBA, and International Super Bantamweight championship titles.

Urvashi continues, “It wasn’t easy for me to choose my love because I faced numerous obstacles when I first started boxing. Along with education and my boxing training, I also worked a part-time job, helped pay for children’s tuition, and self-trained to overcome these challenges. My family did not offer any assistance during this time. However, after winning the gold in Thailand in 2018, Covid invaded India, making it extremely difficult to acquire training during the lockdown. I had given up hope when a co-trainee from my college who was an inspiration came to my door.She continued to box despite coming from a less prosperous neighbourhood, and that struck me as well. Mary Kom is also a source of inspiration for me.
