Nikhat Zareen is a world-class boxer. But way back in 2014, she went to renowned boxing coach Emani Chiranjeevi and trained hard with him for two years. Though he retired in 2006 from active coaching, Chiranjeevi’s students have done well in their jobs, and Nikhat Zareen went on to win the All India University medal in 2016.


While not his students have been on the world stage, many of them have done well at the national level, and Chiranjeevi is proud that most of them landed good jobs. He also trained boxers from other states who too went to settle down in good jobs, he says with a glint of happiness.


He recollects how Hyderabad had a lot of boxers during the 1980s and 1990s. While many of them settled down in railways, he rues that the popularity of the sport suddenly went down due to some reasons. After retiring from active boxing, Chiranjeevi started coaching in Chennai before moving to Hyderabad in 1984, where he joined Osmania University. He guided the team to the gold in the All India Inter-University games twice in a span of four years. “Around 18 students won medals at the All India University level. It was very satisfying,” he says with a smile.


After his stint with OU till 1988, he was appointed national coach for team India. He took the boxing teams to Asian Games and SAF Games. Though he retired in 2006, he coached kids at the Nizam College and Artillery Centre, Golconda, which was very satisfying, he reminisces.


Chiranjeevi shares that he is happy that he can still do what he is doing at 77 and is presently coaching Telangana Social Welfare Residential School kids at Narsingi. Though there was a break due to the pandemic, Chiranjeevi says he has identified four to five kids who he wants to train for the future. “Effort is key to success. Boxing is an art of self-defense. For any sport, physical and mental state is crucial,” he concludes.
