Vijender Singh is all set to bring good news for the Indian boxing fraternity as he has confirmed on Monday that his sixth professional bout is going to take place in India.

The ace Indian professional boxer, speaking on Monday from his residence in Haryana, said, “So far I have heard from my promoters, Queensbury Promotions, my sixth professional bout will be the stage in either Delhi or in Mumbai. My opponent in that bout has not yet been decided although I guess any competitor from either South Korea, Japan or from China may fight with me.” According to the boxer, his promoter company had initially thought of organizing a four-round bout in India. But after having observed increasing popularity among the Indians residing in England and Ireland on Vijender, the promoter company has reportedly decided to stage a six-round bout in India.

 

Vijender added saying, “I am feeling the enthusiasm among the Indians residing in England. Even I have been asked to return to England by the first week of January as four to five Indian owned high profile companies have expressed desire to sign contract with me for their endorsement. So, I am already feeling the heat. And from that point of view I am confident that not less than 10 to 12 thousand boxing fans will be coming to watch me when the bout will take place in India.”

Vijender, after his return to England in the first week of next month, will resume training under the same coach Lee Beard. And the 30-year old boxer informed his fourth bout is likely to be held in the end of February or in the first week of March.
