We hope this will encourage more women and families to make use of our facilities and be a part of this unique initiative in the state. We also have a motivating crowd to work out with,” said K S Vinod, managing director, Title Boxing Club and a former Mr India Jr.

The function which will begin by 5 pm on Thursday will be inaugurated by Justice Saleena V G Nair, Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Ernakulam, and the special guest is actor Shamna Kazim.  

The competitors are Nishana Anooj, a house wife; Mary Antony, a kindergarten teacher; Jeni Cybee, Geo Infopark Manager; Dr Priyanka Remesh;  Indira Venkatachalam, entrepreneur and Ameena Sanooj, former teacher at Choice. The first two matches will be that of three rounds of 1.5 minutes duration.
