Indian boxers’ phenomenal haul of six gold medals in the Commonwealth Championships helped them get a team and kit sponsor, for the first time ever, with the Monnet Steel group.
Monnet signed $1 million deal with boxers as kit sponsors on Thursday.
Apart from this, Percept Sports Management firm, which manages world number one Vijender, also roped in Suranjoy, Jai, Dinesh and Vijender’s cousin Balwinder for a three-year brand endorsement deal.
The 19-year-old Balwinder had lost in the opening round of the tournament but is seen as a bright prospect.
“I hope the support keeps pouring in and the boxers continue to do well,” said an emotional national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu.
The gold medal winning boxers were also awarded Rs 25,000 each by Percept.
