They also felicitated Ziauddin Khatib, the former three times unbeaten world champion and the president of IKBA, India’s premier Kickboxing Association. He was instrumental in ensuring the fighters get the best training and guidance and win on an international platform.
Syed Mudassar Ahmed won the bronze medal under the 85 kg category could not be present at the event.
On the celebratory occasion, Remo said, “It’s indeed a matter of pride and something that should be celebrated across the nation and its indeed really nice to know that our boys have won gold, silver and bronze in three different categories.
I really hope this becomes as big as the other celebrated sports in our country. Kickboxing is something that I love and getting trained in and what can be a matter of pride then these kids getting gold for our county.
