Vijender Singh Wins 11th Consecutive Pro Bout

Vijender recently made his US debut against Mike Snider and won the bout with the technical knockout in the US professional circuit. According to Vijender, his next two fights in the US will tentatively take place in September-October this year and January-February 2020.

Commenting on his win, Vijender said, “It was excellent getting back in the ring after a long time off. It’s great to be here in the USA and to get the win. It was really exciting. I am really happy for my winning debut in USA.”

Indian boxer Vijender Singh revealed that he is willing to return to the amateur ring at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and will love to fight for a gold at the games.

Vijender desires stem from the rule change by the international boxing federation (AIBA) which has allowed professional boxers to participate in Olympics while continuing their Pro career.

The 2008 Beijing Olympics bronze medallist had turned pro in 2015. Since then, he has been undefeated in 11 fights in the professional arena. Vijender had expressed his wish to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics as well, but that didn’t materialise.

“I will love to represent the country at the Games. Right now, my focus is on the next two professional fights. When the Olympics will come closer, we will see to it accordingly. But yes, why not give it a shot,” Vijender said on Thursday.
