Besides Mary Kom, the team also has Commonwealth Games silver medallist Manish Kaushik (63kg).

The duo are key highlights of the Indian team as they are set to make a return to the ring for the first time since the Asian Olympic Qualifiers held in Jordan in March last year.

The highly-competitive tournament will feature 19 nations with their Tokyo-bound boxers.

The Indian team will consist of eight men and six women pugilists, including nine Olympic qualified boxers.

Young boxer Jasmine, who was highly-impressive during the national camp, is also accompanying the boxers for her maiden senior tour. She will participate in the women's 57kg category.
