Indian boxing fans enjoyed yet another exciting evening of thrilling action with hot young fighters Sachin, Dharmender and Kuldeep scoring entertaining wins Sunday, January 26, at the Iron Pumper Gym in India's famed capital New Delhi.

In the main event, undefeated hard-hitting 24-year-old Indian lightweight Sachin Dekwal (7-0, 5 KO's) stopped brave late-sub Prashant Prashant, 20, of Uttar Pradesh in three frames to claim his fourth consecutive victory by way of knockout. After the win, the 135-pounder from the populous and industrial City of Faridabad was said to be willing and ready for more challenging rumbles.

In the entertaining co-feature, unbeaten big 27-year-old Cruiserweight Dharmender Grewal (6-0, 2 KO's) of Chandigarh outclassed tough Deepak Punjab of Delhi for a four-round unanimous decision win.

In addition, lightweight Kuldeep Dhanda (8-2, 1 KO) of Chandigarh scored a hard-fought majority decision win over younger warrior Rohan, 19. The victory brought the strong Kuldeep back to the winning column after a tough loss last year in the Philippines. An energized Kuldeep now aims at more rewarding victories in the 135-pound weight class.

Also recording a triumph was promising 19-year-old Indian featherweight Mohammad Azahar, who came out swinging hard for tough chapter 3 stoppage win over rookie fighter Rohit.

The exciting boxing show, billed as "Battle of the King New Generation," yesterday, January 26, in New Delhi, India was a production of Team Roshan Sports Promotion. Inspector for the event was Brigadier PKM Raja. The guest of honor was Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia.
