The boxing loving superstar Shushant Singh Rajput has bought a stake in the Delhi Gladiator boxing team, a team in the upcoming Super Boxing League.

The Bollywood superstar in regards to the boxing team says, "I have always loved boxing and have been a big fan of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky series. I couldn't think of a better way to be associated with the sport that I love. I'm really excited about my new venture."

When asked about his time management because of his busy schedule, he replied, “I hardly sleep for two to three hours a day. So, that leaves me with a lot of time. I am planning to be completely involved with my team.”

Apart from Sushant, Suniel Shetty, Rana Daggubati, Randeep Hooda and Sohail Khan also own stakes in the upcoming boxing tournament. The first season of the boxing league will take place from July 7 to August 12.

The league will have eight different teams. These teams are Delhi Gladiator, Haryana Warriors, Maratha Yoddhas, Mumbai Assasins, North East Tigers, OPM Punjab Sultans, Bahubali Boxers (representing South India) and UP Terminators.

The Super Boxing League comes after the whooping success of Indian Premier League (IPL), Football League ISL (Indian Super League) and Pro Kabaddi League. Bollywood stars have infused the Indian sports with celebrities making it much more appealing.

It started with Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta owning Cricket teams in the IPL, a trend that continued. It has also helped bring glamor to Indian sports.
