Akhil Kumar, supported by SA Mittal Champions Trust, will be undergoing a surgery in the carpal joint of his right wrist in Johannesburg, South Africa on Wednesday.

The Haryana pugilist, who injured his wrist last year, has been undergoing a rehabilitation programme under the supervision of South African physiotherapist Heath McNeil Mathews for the last five weeks — first in Bangalore and later on in Durban.

Sports medicine doctor Mark Serguson will operate upon him. “I don’t want to take any risk and want to be 100 percent fit so I decided to go for a surgery,” said Akhil.
