Born into Captain Hawa Singh’s family, 22-year-old Nupur is keen to carry her legendary two-time Asian Games gold medal-winning grandfather’s legacy forward. She is the third generation of sportsperson in a family where sports binds all.

Nupur’s father Sanjay Kumar has been a multiple-time national champion boxer who set up the reputed Guru Dronacharya Captain Hawa Singh Boxing Academy in 2006 in memory of his father where he currently coaches. Nupur’s mother Mukesh Rani too has been an Asian Championships medallist basketball player.

With such a throbbing sports culture in her family, embracing sports was an automatic choice for the young Nupur. She decided to take up boxing after watching her father train passionate and dedicated youngsters at his academy.

It did not take long for Nupur to give a testament of her immense talent. In her very first Youth Nationals in 2015, she captured the gold and continued to shine at the All India Inter-University Boxing Tournament in 2018 where she once more stood on the top podium.

Having played her first international competition at the Strandja International Boxing in 2019, she has come a long way and is putting the hard yards for the upcoming competition and dreams of representing India at the Olympics.

She won the gold medal in the 81+ kg category at the 2022 Senior Nationals
