Deepak has received the name Boxer because he was a winner in a national-level boxing championship before entering the world of crime.

Deepak is from the small village of Ganaur in Sonipat and used to be a boxer. In 2008, he joined boxing clubs and was soon seen competing in state-level championships.

According to police, he was hired as a trainee boxer by the Sports Authority of India in 2009-10. He went on to become the junior national champion in the 57 kg category as a 15-16-year-old.

According to his dossier, he studied until the tenth grade, then dropped out to pursue a career in boxing, which he did until the inter-state level. He won a gold medal at the junior level, but he quit boxing after losing a game.
