I am happy that boxing is getting a boost in Goa. I remember boxing greats like Raymond Braganza of Panjim who used to organise boxing tournaments at Massano de Amorim.

Congratulations to Sharvani Sports and Cultural Club of Saligao and all those who are involved in organising this tournament.

Goa has had well known boxers for years.
