In yet another boost to India’s chances of getting gold at the Asian Games, Delhi guy Rakesh Singh will be a surprise participant at the Boxing event this year.
Rakesh was involved in road rage at Chandni Chowk after his car brushed an SUV a busy intersection. Though the guys in the SUV were twice his size, Rakesh managed to throw some deft punches which caught them by surprise. As usual, eyewitnesses not only enjoyed the road rage but some took videos and shared in on social media.
The video got a million hits on social media. Sports Minister Rajavardhan Rathore, who is pretty active on social media, couldn’t help but comment on how impressed he was with the video. “I am a sportsman and I can spot budding talent at the snap of a finger. That guy has some serious talent,” he tweeted.
Speaking on sending ‘Rocky’ for the Asian Games, Mr. Rathore said, “One of our boxer has caught a stomach bug and most probably wont be participating in a scheduled event. I have spoken to the authorities at the games and they are open to last minute entries. If he can just repeat his road rage performance, I can say we have another gold in our tally.”
The news led to many young men from Delhi sharing their ‘rage videos’ on social media. Some even calling for a talent hunt on the lines of Indian Idol for those who take road rage seriously.
