Mumbai: Maratha Yoddhas made a terrific comeback to register a win in their first match of the campaign as they beat Mumbai Assassins with a margin of 10-9 in Group B encounters of the Super Boxing League in New Delhi this weekend. Delhi Gladiators also impressed again as they won that second consecutive match of Super Boxing League to beat the struggling UP Terminators 19-0 in Group A. The other match in Group A saw Haryana Warriors open their account as they won against OPM Punjab Sultans 15-6.
The first match of the weekend was between Deepak Tanwar-led Maratha Yoddhas and Ram Singh-led Mumbai Assassins in Group B. It was the Mumbai Assassins who started the match strongly as they won the first three bouts of the night through Asif Asad Khan, Pawan Goyat and Manjit Kolekar to establish a 9-0 lead. However, the Maratha Yoddhas made a stunning comeback through captain Deepak Tanwar, Vivek Jangra and Sandeep Chhikara to beat Mumbai Assassins 10-9 on the night. The difference between the two sides was Sandeep Chhikara who beat Mumbai Assassins' skipper Ram Singh by a Technical Knock Out in the last bout of the match to get the all-important four points.
