The Indian boxers qualified to participate at the Tokyo Olympics are all set to begin training from June 10 next.
The men and women pugilists will be training at the NIS in Patiala.
With this the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) could be the first association to restart training for its Olympic-bound athletes.
According to reports, the decision was taken at a video conference, where the Olympic-bound boxers took part along with BFI executive director R K Sacheti, vice president Rajesh Bhandari, high performance directors Santiago Nieva (men) and Raffaele Bergamasco (women), and chief national coaches CA Kuttappa (men) and Mohammed Ali Qamar (women).
The boxers, who had attended the conference were Amit Panghal (52kg), Satish Kumar (+91kg), MC May Kom (51kg), Simranjit Kaur (60kg), Lovlina Borgohain (69kg), and Pooja Rani (75kg).
However, three other boxers, who had also qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, namely Manish Kaushik (63kg), Vikas Krishan (69kg), Ashish Kumar (75kg) could not take part in the call.
Earlier, the BFI had ruled out resumption of camps in the last week of May despite the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) giving green signal for opening of sports complexes and stadiums.
