Mary Kom and Manish Kaushik Get Easy Draw on Comeback at Boxam International Tournament
Making return in the ring after a year's break, six-time world champion MC Mary Kom and World Championship bronze medallist Manish Kaushik are set to face comparatively easy challenge in their opening matches as the draw unveiled for the Boxam International Tournament scheduled from March 1-7 in Castellon, Spain. Both the Indians were out of action due to injuries and didn't play any international tournament since Asian Olympic Qualifiers held in March last year. While Kaushik will face Spanish opponent Raddouane Ammari on Tuesday night in the 63kg light welterweight preliminary round, veteran Mary Kom will begin her campaign in the quarter-finals stage where she will take on Italy's Giordana Sorrentino in the flyweight 51kg. Quarter-finals matches of women's categories will be played on Wednesday.
