Mohammad Hussamuddin Facts
- Although born into a family of boxers, Hussamuddin was initially not very inclined toward the sport. He used to be quite scared about getting into the ring and it was his father, a boxing coach and former boxer, who pushed him into the ring and later taught him the nuances of the sport.
- His first major achievement was winning a ‘Bronze’ medal at the junior national boxing championship, held in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, in 2009. The following year, at the Panchayat Yuva Krida Khel Abhiyan (PYKKA), an initiative of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, a branch of the Government of India, he won the ‘Silver’ medal.
- In 2011, at the national youth championship, he won the ‘Silver’ medal. He repeated the feat the following year after which he was selected to participate in the 2012 World Youth Championships held in Yerevan, Armenia. In December 2016, he won the ‘Gold’ medal at the senior national championship on his debut appearance in the competition.
- Besides his stellar boxing career, he has served in the Indian Army as a ‘Junior Commissioned Officer’ (JCO), a term used for a group of military personnel ranked higher than ‘Havildar’ (equivalent to sergeant) and lower than ‘Lieutenant’ (a commissioned officer rank in the armed forces of many nations).
- As of August 2022, he had held the rank of ‘Subedar’, the middle of the 3 JCO ranks in the Indian Army (the ranks from highest to lowest being ‘Subedar Major’/’Risaldar Major’, ‘Subedar’/’Risaldar’, and ‘Naib Subedar’/’Naib Risaldar’).
- He has also trained at the Army Sports Institute (a multi-disciplinary facility that imparts training in archery, athletics, boxing, diving, wrestling, fencing, and weightlifting) in Pune, Maharashtra.
- His role model is Ukrainian professional boxer Vasyl Lomachenko who is a former world champion in 3 different weight classes, having held the WBO (World Boxing Organization) featherweight title from 2014 to 2015; the WBO junior lightweight title from 2016 to 2017; and the unified WBA (World Boxing Association) (Super), WBC (World Boxing Council), WBO, and Ring magazine lightweight titles between 2018 and 2020.
