The partnership is in line with Mahindra Group’s initiatives to empower women in fields such as sports. The partnership presents an opportunity for Mahindra to leverage significant synergies, with the XUV300 TGDi and the All-New Thar appointed as the official SUVs for the upcoming World Box Championships in 2023.  Additionally, Mahindra will be hosting exciting contests for customers to enjoy the championship and create unforgettable memories.

It is a matter of personal pride that India is hosting the World Boxing Championship for Women. My love for the sport goes back long before I started training for my film, Toofaan, and now to be here celebrating this event is a wonderful feeling. As an avid sport lover, I have followed the journey of our girls, cheered and applauded every time they brought glory to India in this sport! I hope that all of you will watch the exciting bouts and get inspired by these women from around the world. I would also like to give a special mention to BFI who are doing a tremendous job by encouraging and supporting women in the field of boxing. And finally, good luck to all the players participating in this event. Todun taak!”
