Mr. Sanjay Prasad
Head Coach, Founder and Secretary
Balaji Boxing Academy was founded on 2nd October, 2017. It was founded by Mr. Sanjay Prasad and his team of boxers. Sanjay Prasad is a boxing coach who used to play for Indian Railways during his young age. After he quit playing he become a boxing coach and trained a lot of boxers. His coached boxers performed exceptionally well and got jobs in Indian Railways, Indian Army and Police.
There was a slum near to his house and he observed that families there, were suffering from poverty and were struggling with their life. Children were deprived of education and had no hope in life for coming out of it and becoming successful in life. Sanjay Prasad one day thought of an idea that what if these children can be trained to become a boxer, this can be a very good idea which can transform their life.
Mr. Sanjay Prasad discussed this idea with his fellow boxers and formed a team and thought of opening a club for the unprivileged children of slums. This lead to the inception of BALAJI BOXING ACADEMY.
Presently Balaji Boxing Academy works for the unprivileged children of slums (Dalit kids). We provide them with proper training, boxing kits and opportunities to showcase their talent. Balaji Boxing academy welcomes everyone. It has two wings one is charity and the other one is paid. The fees collected for the paid wing is very minimal.
