New Delhi, Oct 26 (IANS) Star Indian boxer Vijender Singh on Thursday revealed that his next professional bout is likely to take place on December 16.
“In amateur boxing, you have to go through certain levels there is the Sports Authority of India (SAI), government. In professional boxing my sponsors take care of it,” the 31-year-old told reporters at the Phd Annual Awards for Excellence 2017.
“My next fight is on December 16 and it is going to be a big fight, the professional boxing has it’s own differences but otherwise it’s the same, I used to box earlier, I do the same now,” Vijender added.
