New Delhi: Six Indian male boxers were forced to leave the Strandja Memorial Tournament that began on February 19 in Sofia, Bulgaria, due to injuries when the Ministry of Sports approved funding for the truncated team’s participation in the major European circuit tournament.

Govind (48 kg), Ankit (51 kg), Rajpinder Singh (54 kg), Dalvir Singh (63.5 kg), Rohit Tokas (71 kg) and Gaurav Chauhan (92 kg) were withdrawn from the tournament due to problems encountered during the training.
