The tennis courts of the Tourist Hostel of the New Delhi YMCA was the stage for the first act of what eventually became a never - ending drama of unlimited acts. Fittingly, the birth of the YMCA invitation Boxing Championship began with schoolboys and appropriately too, the final of that Championship in 1973 involved the country's first, and till now, only Field Marshal Sam Maneckshaw , the chief of the Army Staff.
