On Thursday, Nikhat Zareen became the fifth Indian woman to win a gold medal at the IBA Women’s World Boxing Championships in the 52 kg category. The 25-year-old boxer got the top spot by winning 5-0 over Thailand’s Jitpong Jutamas.

To commemorate the victory, Amul, on Saturday, dedicated its latest topical to Zareen’s win. The topical shows Zareen punching her competitor in a boxing ring. In its witty fashion, Amul titled the topical, ‘Zareigning Champion’. ‘Zareigning’ was a portmanteau for Zareen and Reigning.

The topical, captioned “#Amul Topical: Indian boxer wins gold in Women’s World Boxing Championship!”, has gathered over 900 likes on Instagram.

After Zareen’s historic win, her father, Mohammad Jameel, who is a former footballer and cricketer, told The Indian Express, “To win a gold in the world championships is something which will act as an inspiration to Muslim girls as well each girl in the country to aim to achieve bigger in life. A kid, whether he is a boy or girl, has to make their own way and Nikhat has paved her own way.

Talking about the thrill of winning the world championship, Zareen told The Indian Express on Friday, “I haven’t slept a wink. I was reading my DMs, messages all night. It was very exciting. Talking to friends and family, I couldn’t sleep”.

Manisha Moun and Parveen Hooda also won the bronze medals at the same championship in the 57 kg and 63 kg categories.
