This player who holds 15 gold medal was forced to work at daily wage

There have been many changes in the country in the last few days. In the meantime, there is a story of a player who beat the opponents in the boxing ring but could not beat the poverty in the ring of life. 27-year-old boxer Manoj Kumar, a resident of Sangrur, is now doing daily wage work for Rs 450. The hands that were supposed to have boxing gloves are now forced to carry wheat and rice bags.

He lived in oblivion, the story of this boxer started at the age of 11. Manoj made 23 medals at the state level. He won 15 consecutive gold medals. After seeing the first junior boxing, senior boxing and youth boxing, he made his place in the Indian team for the invitation tournament. Manoj, who has won two gold medals and five bronze medals in national level competition, told Dainik Jagran that for the first time in sixth grade, PT went to show at Banasar Bagh.

There was a passion to play in the stadium watching boxing rings and gloves. He started practice at home, and took coaching from coach Pushpinder. He carved himself in the boxing center of Mastuana Sahib and beat many players of the Punjab Police, Railway Department in the ring. It was not known when he started playing at the national level, but perhaps poverty and luck were somewhat different. It is said that no one is ahead of luck. In the same way, this player's luck also did not support him.
