Indian wrestler and bronze medallist at the World Wrestling Championship, Vinesh Phogat and Indian Open silver medallist Nikhat Zareen are very good friends and the latter lost no time in congratulating Phogat on her recent exploits at Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

The 22-year-old boxer posted a video on her social media handle, where the duo are seen grappling in a friendly bout at the Inspire Institute of Sports in Karnataka.

Vinesh is seen making quick work of Zareen,  a loss the latter said she was happy to admit.


"So happy for my dear friend @Phogat_Vinesh ji to qualify for the @Tokyo2020 & win the bronze medal too at the World Championships," Zareen said in her tweet.

Zareen also cheekily said that she was glad to lose to Vinesh so it gave her all the confidence she needed for her upcoming bouts.

Having lost on the mat, Zareen also suggested a change of venue for their next meet, saying, "Agli bar ek boxing match hojaye? (How about a boxing match next?)".

This is one boxing match you will never want to miss!
