Indian Boxer Gagan ‘The Pitbull’ Sharma has already made his mark in the boxing circuit. Currently holding a professional record of 9-2 to his name, Gagan has been in the ring with both Indian and international opponents and is ranked second in the Middleweight rankings for India as per BoxRec.
Over the course of his career, Gagan has fought in India, Thailand, Dubai, and United States among others, and is now on track to make his return to the ring.
Hailing from Chandigarh, he started his boxing journey at the young age of five after being inspired by the legendary Mike Tyson. And when the young Gagan’s father decided to take the internet in their home so that Gagan can watch Mike Tyson, his life changed forever.
Boxing has been part of Gagan’s life ever since. Now, he has made his acting debut as well as he played a role in the new boxing-based movie from Bollywood, Toofan which stars Farhan Akhtar in the lead role.
We managed to catch up with Gagan for an exclusive interview to talk about his boxing journey, the troubles he had gone through early in his career, and how the role in Toofan came for him, his future plans, memories of his fight in the United States and much more.
