Born in Rohtak, Haryana, Sangram U Singh suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis which left him handicapped during the early years of his life. With his determination he overcame the disease and started to practice wrestling from a very young age of twelve. This helped him to physically grow strong and later become a professional wrestler. During a brief stint with Delhi Police, he continued with his ambition of wrestling. 

Sangram participated in different national and international wrestling competitions, but got massive recognition by winning gold at the Commonwealth Heavyweight Professional Championship in South Africa during 2015. He was awarded for the same by Hon'ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi and received appreciation for making India proud.   

One of the most imperative aspects of his wrestling career is that he opened a gateway for professional wrestling in India, which was not popular until then. In order to provide an impetus to professional wrestling he announced the launch of Champions Pro Kushti in 2015. 

A year later, in 2016 he created a milestone by winning the Commonwealth Heavyweight Championship again. Perhaps, Sangram managed to popularize wrestling as a career option, in a country where cricket is loved and admired. Today, he is being revered not only as a popular wrestling star, but also as a fitness and sports icon by the youth of the country. This can be acknowledged from the fact that a chapter has been included by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in the Hindi textbooks of class 7th which is based on his life. 

What differentiates Sangram U Singh from other sports persons is having a heart of gold encased in an iron strong body.  As a generous human being he understands the pain of the stricken and downtrodden people. The reason behind this can be attributed to the suffering he went through in his own life. Due to his kind nature Sangram has been associated with various social and humanitarian causes. 

In addition to social causes, Sangram Singh has been actively involved in promoting sports, fitness and nutrition across the country. He promotes strict vegetarianism as a healthy way of life. He also emphasizes on home cooked food and regular exercise as the ideal way to achieve fitness. 

Despite wrestling being his prime passion and career, Sangram U Singh has been regularly roped in by the entertainment industry.
