Like Rico says there could be so much talent hidden away over there. Just needs someone to take a risk and pump some money in, set up gyms, get good trainers across etc. and you could have a whole new market for boxing.
My favourite fighter of the Olympics was Singh, the Indian light fly who lost to Paddy Barnes. Looked ready for the pro's IMO.
