Mary Kom’s trainer Chhote Lal Yadav now 2-star AIBA coach
New Delhi, Sep 17: Former national champion Chhote Lal Yadav, who is currently the assistant coach for Indian women boxers, has become a two-star coach in the International Boxing Association (AIBA) after clearing the certification course.
Yadav, a three-time national champion and an Asian Championships quarterfinalist, cleared the exam conducted in July in Amman, Jordan.
The former boxer from Uttar Pradesh is the personal trainer of five-time world champion and Olympic bronze medallist MC Mary Kom, who has claimed three gold medals in various international events this year alone.
“Mr. Chhote Lal Yadav has successfully completed the course and passed the examination. I look forward to his continuous dedication and support,” AIBA Executive Director Tom Virgets said in a letter addressed to Boxing Federation of India (BFI) President Ajay Singh.
The 31-year-old Yadav, who is a Subedar in the Indian Army, is a coaching diploma holder from the National Institute of Sports in Patiala. He had topped the 2014-15 batch.
The former boxer’s career highlights also include a South Asian Games gold medal and the junior Asian top honors.
“My life has always revolved around boxing. I have tried to do my job with utmost sincerity and I am thankful to god for the results. Mary Kom trusted me with the responsibility of overseeing her training in 2014 and I am glad it has been a good partnership,” he told PTI.
The AIBA two-star course is a seven-day programme, which follows the one-star level. The coaches are upgraded on the basis of an examination and it makes them eligible to be seconds at all AIBA-affiliated events.
