Manish, a 2019 Worlds bronze medalist who was unable to compete in an event following the Tokyo Olympics due to injury, is eager to put his skills to the test once more.
“This will be my first event after the Olympics, and I am excited to give it my all,” Manish remarked.

Other Asian meet medals for the Indian boxer include silver in 2017 and 2021, and bronze in 2015 and 2019.
