Cricketer Gautam Gambhir has come out hugely in support of Dingko Singh, the 1998 Asian Games boxing gold medallist.

Dingko Singh has been suffering from bile duct cancer and after going through Chemotherapy on Tuesday at Imphal, it has been found that 70% of his liver has been removed.

When Gautam Gambhir heard the news he came forward to rescue the Indian boxing champion. Gambhir supported him financially and also said that there were many ways the boxer could be helped by the country.

Gambhir also mentioned that he would not like to publicise or advertise about what he is doing.

Gambhir also appealed for support on twitter and  said, “We must take care of our champions jst as they make us proud. Help Asian Games Gold winner by sending a text to Babai-his wife at 8131830664”.


Singh was earlier receiving treatment at Delhi and had spent over 10 lacs for his treatment but after financial constraints forced him to sell off his property, he had to move to his ancestral house near Imphal.

Dingko Singh is a champion at the 1998 Asian Games and has also won the prestigious Arjuna Award in 1998 and Padma Shri in 2013.
