A Nizamabadi girl, who trains in Hyderabad, had to fight Outside the Ring also, to become a World Champion…

It is perplexing for a young girl to take up sport where the ring is dominated by men. Also, this young girl is a native of Nizamabad, belonging to a traditional community. Having the natural talent along with the required stamina, guts, right timing and the impact has given deserved applauds to Nikhat Zareen. Winning gold at a ‘teen’ age of 15 after fighting all odds of society is not easy. Nikhat always wanted to do something different than conventions. Having the qualities of both an attacker & defender, she is inspired by Mary Kom and Mohammed Ali. Making her family & India proud, the boxer has secured medals at various tournaments. She has been an inspiration for many young girls from Telangana to learn and pursue boxing. Presently she is aspiring for Gold at the 2020 Olympics.
