Sanjay Dutt was among the first few actors in the industry who started the trend of working out and staying fighting fit. Now the handsome hunk, who is still known for his fitness, has been appointed as the brand ambassador for boxing by the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF).
The announcement was made by IABF President, Abhey Singh Chautala at a function in Bhatinda, Punjab over the weekend. Mr. Chautala said that boxing had recently brought laurels to the country in the Beijing Olympics (courtesy bronze medal winner Vijender Kumar) and the sport now needed a well-known brand ambassador to promote it further.
The announcement was made in Dutt's presence, who had come to witness the ongoing national boxing championship. Must say, after India's glory at the recently concluded Olympics, the appointment of Munnabhai as a brand ambassador will surely give a fillip to boxing.
