Indian pro boxer Sabri Jaishankar, who won Australia’s title in the welterweight division, has become the third Indian to enter the ranking list released by the Word Boxing Council (WBC).

Jaishankar, who defeated Australian champion boxer Michael Pengue for the WBC Australia title last month, has been ranked 36th by the world body in their latest monthly rankings.

The boxer from Tamil Nadu is currently the only Indian to make it to the world rankings and only the third Indian to feature in the list in 2016 after overall Olympic medalists Vijender Singh (World Boxing Organization Ranking) and Neeraj Goyat (WBC).

“I feel that entering the rankings will help me gain more international matches and exposure, which will help me gain more experience,” he said in a release.

“This is just the beginning. I have achieved a task and now I want to win the Asia title.”
