I have been boxing since 2000 when I was 19 years old.
I was a professional boxer for 5 years and in 2005 I started coaching.
Anyone can start boxing from the age of 3.5 years.
My inspirations are my uncle, Shivaji Nikalje, and my father who were also boxers.
I have been guided by late Mr T G Naik, Mr Mangesh Kamble and Mr Umesh Jagdale.
My students have played at national level.
Few of them are Prajakta Tade, Kiran pawar, Gautam Vaishnav, Priya Dhakle state level gold medalist.
