The Indian pro-boxer Vijender Singh who have had a great outing on the professional boxing rings winning four out of four bouts he appeared at, today, accepted the challenge announced by the British-Pakistani Professional boxer Amir Khan. In the challenge given to the Indian boxing sensation, Amir had expressed his willingness to fight against Vijender Singh in India.
The British professional boxer who has 34 appearances to the professional boxing arena has been training intensively for his much-anticipated WBC title contest against Mexico’s Saul ‘Canelo Alvarez.
Singh, speaking about the challenge, said,” I accept the challenge of Amir Khan and I am sure this fight will be a big boost to boxing in our country.”
“As we both fight in different weight categories so will have to see whether Amir gains or I have to lose weight. I have started my professional boxing career last year only and have made only 4 appearances in the pro ring.” He further added.
“It might take me just one more year when I will be ready to fight against Amir Khan. I am sure this fight will attract international limelight and attention. Currently I am focusing on my next fight scheduled for 30 April against Matiouze Royer at Copper Box Arena”, he concluded.
As also spoken by Vijender, any possible fight among the two is at least a year or two away.
