Nikhat’s father never suppressed her dream and passion to learn boxing, but encouraged his daughter. Nikhat started her boxing career from AV College during graduation. She got her first success in the year 2010. 15-year-old Nikhat performed brilliantly in the National Sub Junior Meet.

Objections were raised on her wearing shorts. She had to hear many things when she practiced boxing with men. But Nikhat and her family kept moving forward fighting the fundamentalist ideology and answered everyone with the echo of their victory.
