Twenty-one year old boxer Ravinder Singh punched his way to a gold in the boys’ below 80kg category at the Sukan Malaysia (Malaysia Games) 2018.

The lanky Ravinder was in superb form as he beat all his three opponents without conceding a point on Friday (21 Sept 2018) at Sukma 2018. He threw some solid punches to beat Terengganu’s Mohammad Noor Shahrul Mohd Saidin 5-0 in the final, reported The Star.

This was a major comeback for him after not being able to clinch the gold at the Malaysian national games two years ago in Sarawak.

“It’s my second and last Sukma and I wanted to bow out with a gold after my disappointment in Sarawak,” Ravinder told The Star. “I defeated all my three opponents with an identical score of 5-0. It’s the best achievement in my boxing career.”

“I will take a break from boxing but will pursue this sport after completing my studies,” said Ravinder, who hopes to complete his degree in the Computer Science at the Inti International University in Nilai.
