Junior International Gold medalist boxer Shiva Thapa visits Gangtok



His boxing ring performance put in the picture more than his age, ten boxing gold and three bronze medals from 14 national and international tournaments that he had participated can make any sports lover go crazy. But it isn’t in case of Shiva Thapa, a 16 year old promising boxer from Assam still in his teens. From his haul of 13 medals three had been achieved in foreign soils representing India. A gold medal in 50 kg category representing India at Hyder Aliyev International Boxing Championship held in Azerbaijan, Baku (May 2008) while two bronze medals were achieved at The IV International Sports Games "Children of Asia" held in Yakutia in 50 kg category (July 2008) and AIBA World Junior Boxing Championship held in Yerevan, Armenia in 52 kg category (May 2009).
