This is the live blog for India vs Pakistan Boxing event taking place at the Golf Club Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The fight card features Six fights with 12 boxers. The event features three Mizo boxers and the highly touted amateur Sarjubala Devi making her pro debut against Tanzanian Lulu Kayage. The event is headlined by rising welterweight prospect Faizan Anwar.
The first fight on the card was between Shaikhom Rebaldo and Ahmed Kakar. It was an entertaining back and forth fight between both. In the opening round, Mukhtiar showed some skills with his jabs, but it didn’t last long as the Manipuri boxer bounced back to dominate the remainder of the fight.
Following this, Mizoram’s Laldinliana stepped inside the ring and handily dominated over his Pakistani opponent Ammar Khan.
The highlight of the event was, of course, the super flyweight fight between Nutlai Lalbiakkima and Fida Muhammad. Lalbiakkima was dominant right from the opening bell as he controlled the tempo of the fight. He constantly applied forward pressure and hit Fida with some hard-hitting shots and backed him up against the rope. In the second round, Nutlai Lalbiakkima started in a southpaw stance and he started a little slower, which led Fida to land a couple of punches. However, out of nowhere, Nutlai landed a hard right hand and knocked out the Pakistani boxer and scored a second-round stoppage victory.
After a thunderous KO victory, fans were in for a boxing clinic put on by Faizan Anwar as he took on Yameen Khan. Anwar dominated right from the beginning and hurt the Pakistani with his jab. His crisp boxing gave Khan a lot of trouble and ultimately he was able to back him up against the rope and landed a barrage of punches following which the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
Next in line was Lalrinsanga Tlau, who is also the WBC youth champion. He took on Muhammad Sikander Abbasi. It wasn’t a tough fight for the Mizoram based boxer as he outboxed the Pakistani for all of six rounds and earned a comfortable unanimous decision.
In the final fight of the card, Manipuri boxing sensation and Rio Olympian Sarjubala Devi made her professional debut in style as she completely annihilated her opponent Lulu, who came all the way from Tanzania. She scored an easy unanimous decision victory over her African opponent.
