Indian boxer Amit Panghal, the silver medalist of the World Boxing Championships, believes that he (boxers) will need at least two weeks to return to the position the boxers were in before Covid-19. He believes that while stadiums have been opened, it will take more time to get fully trained in sports like boxing.
Paghal said to IANS, "We will take at least two weeks to improve our skills. This game is about getting in direct contact with the players. So I am sure that we are training late compared to many other sports. So we'll have to work on our reflexes again." He further said, "We will also have to work on regaining our patience. Now only training is being done on a personal level, which is very different from ring training. I am confident that whatever the Ministry of Sports or Sports Authority of India plans for us, it will be good for the preparations for the Olympics. There is still time for the Olympics, so I believe that there are many more medals (medals) from India. "
To prevent coronavirus, the government has extended the lockdown period on Sunday. During this time the sports complex, stadiums will be opened for players only. Panghal had hoped that the lockdown would be extended after May 17, but he did not expect the stadiums to open. He said, "I did not expect this. Nobody really knows anything, so it is hard to expect or not to expect anything. I was sure that the lockdown would be further in view of the increase in the number of corona infections. But I did not expect that the stadiums would be opened. "
