Vijender Singh has been mighty impressive ever since he turned professional last year. The Indian boxer has won four matches on the trot, and will be gunning for another win when he fights at the Harrow Leisure Centre in London for his fifth pro boxing bout April 2.
Though a fortnight remains for the April 2 fight, Vijender Singh's opponent is yet to be decided. This is not something new for the Indian boxer, who has come to know about his previous opponents some days ahead of the scheduled fight only.
Vijender has had an incredible start to his pro career, defeating the likes of Sonny Whiting, Dean Gillen, Samet Hyuseinov and Alexander Horvath, all of whom were involved in trash talking, stating how they would defeat the Indian. However, Vijender did most of his talking with the gloves inside the ring, with stunning performances. What has been even more impressive is the manner of wins against these boxers. He has won all his matches via knockout.
Vijender wants to continue his impressive run, and defeat his next opponent with another knockout.
"London here I come! I can't wait to fight at Harrow and show London fans what Vijender is all about. I've fought in Manchester, Dublin and Liverpool and now I'm heading to the English capital for my fifth professional fight. I have started working hard for my fight which is just two weeks away and aiming at a fifth knockout-win in a row," IANS quoted Vijender as saying.
Vijender will use such fights to prepare himself for the WBO Asia title in India (June), which will also be for the first time that the boxer will fight as a pro boxer in his home country. After having defeated Horvath is his last fight, he wants to remain undefeated and has warned his next opponent, though unnamed.
"I know that the fans in London are looking forward to me coming to fight there and there is a big buzz already. This is now a big push before returning home in the summer to challenge for my first pro title so it's crucial that I win these fights," Vijender said.
"I had a good win in Liverpool last week and I want to continue my unbeaten run in London. Whoever I fight, they're are going to be in trouble. I thought that Horvath was going to give me something different but he only lasted three rounds."
