Vikas Krishan, 28 years old Indian boxer will have to work hard for professional as well as amateur boxing. He started his training in isolation at the Inspire Institute of Sports in Vijaynagar. In 2018 he started his professional path toward his career and also qualified for the Tokyo Olympics.
With the delay in the Olympics and no tournaments schedule, Krishan has the best time to get some competition. “It’s totally dependent on his mentality. 99 percent of the boxers who won the Professional arena played the same as in the amateur arena,” said Ronald Simms, coach of Krishna from the US.
“He is at the beginning of his training but later we will go into more technical and professional training. He is aware of all the approaches.”, he further added, as quoted by Hindustan Times.
As per Simms, Krishan is in good space. Krishan played two games last year and was comfortable in switching from professional to amateur boxing.
“It will be good for him to try professional boxing as he is really good at switching which he showed in qualification. Krishan is more comfortable in 69 kg fight because it’s his actual weight,” said Santiago Nieva, high professor director.
“I aim to win the gold medal in the Olympics. It doesn’t matter who the opponent is, because I am confident enough and have experience”, said Krishan.
