Indian Olympic Boxing Squad for Dublin

Updated: June 21, 2012

India have named their entire seven-man Olympic team in a 12-man squad
for a training camp with Ireland at Dublin’s National Stadium.

The India team arrived in Dublin on Friday evening and will begin
training with Ireland early next week.

London 2012 Olympians Laishram Devendro Singh, Shiva Thapa, Jai
Bhagwan, Manoj Kumar, Vikas Krishan, Vijender Singh and Sumit Sangwan
are included in the visiting panel.

Ireland’s David Oliver Joyce needs no introduction to Bhagwan, who
will represent his country at lightweight at London 2012.

Both boxers met in the last-16 of the AIBA World Championships and
Olympics qualifiers in Baku, Azerbaijan last year.

The bout was tied at 30-30 within a few seconds remaining to the final
bell, but Joyce received a harsh public warning for holding, a verdict
which handed Bhagwan a 32-30 decision and a ticket to the London

Ireland will be using the visit of India as part of their build up
toward the 2012 Games.

The Irish Olympic squad meantime will have their final training camp
in Assisi, Italy next month before traveling to London.

Katie Taylor, Paddy Barnes, Michael Conlan, John Joe Nevin, Adam Nolan
and Darren O’Neill will represent Ireland in the boxing event at the
30th Olympiad.
