Sri Lanka’s Ishan Ranjeewa Seneviratne Bandara and Singapore’s Nur Sabrina Binte Mohamed Faizal started their respective campaigns in the Eindhoven Box Cup 2022 with a bang at the Hotel Eindhoven in the Netherlands over the weekend.

The 31-year-old Bandara, a bronze medalist in the Commonwealth Games 2018, unloaded a barrage of punches against England’s Thom Marley in the first round before coming through with an RSC victory in the succeeding canto of their men’s flyweight (51kg) bout.
