Pooja Rani did not have much interest in sports since childhood. But when she entered college for higher education, she started boxing with the encouragement of a female lecturer. The woman’s lecturer told her that you have height, weight, and power to be a boxer. The husband of that female lecturer was a boxer coach.

That female lecturer took Pooja to the inter-college boxing competition where Pooja got the Queen Silver Medal. Pooja Rani said in an interview that she won a silver medal in the inter-college competition without any training.
