the end of his career in the ring He was married the same year and five years later set up Bidhuri Boxing Club in Madanpur Khadar village near Sarita Vihar in Delhi a place where a decade later his son Gaurav would start his tryst with the sport When Gaurav became only the fourth Indian boxer to reach the semi-finals of the World Championships assuring himself of a medal after a 3-0 win over Tunisian Bilel Mhamdi in Hamburg it brought back memories of all the quarter-final losses for the senior Bidhuri “When I started boxing I reached the quarter-finals in my first year at the senior level but lost to Bose in the quarters I got a job offer from Services the same year but since we had a family business I did not join The following two years saw me losing again the quarters and my father got me married Perhaps that was the reason I started the club as I wanted to be close to boxing Gaurav ki aaj ki quarter-final ki jeet ne un sabhi losses ko bhula diya” shares 49-year-old Dharmendra Gaurav is also aware of what his achievement means to his father “I got a wild card entry into the tournament and the gold medal at the Grand Prix in Czech Republic did help my confidence I

than one hour and later I talked with boxing official Narottam Singh Rawat They organised a show bout against a boxer who was three years older to him and 5-6 Kg heavier He defeated him and even though he did not win a medal he would talk about it to the academy boys for a long time” remembers Dharmendra Bidhuri was also signed by Mumbai Fighters in 2011 for World Series of Boxing and the

on her The limelight is all on (PV) Sindhu and (K) Srikanth and that is a good thing” Saina suffered a knee injury during last year’s Olympics and since then she has been struggling with her form She won the Malaysia Masters in January which was her first title after coming back from the injury but still she has not been able to reach her peak till now With a dip in form it also became a tough
