SINGAPORE: It has been 28 years since Singapore won a gold medal for boxing at the South East Asian Games.

At the SEA Games in 2011, they came back with a bronze medal.

Now, they are aiming for at least one gold medal at the upcoming Games in Myanmar.

The President of the Singapore Amateur Boxing Association, Syed Abdul Kadir, is quietly confident that his charges will end the gold medal drought this year.

The association will be sending five boxers to the Games and Kadir has been hard at work, whipping his boys into shape, in their preparation for the Games.

He said: "Actually preparation is on-going since the last SEA Games in 2011 and we have sent them overseas for exposure. They have been training twice a week under the national training and they also train at their own clubs on the other days."
