MANCHESTER : Indian boxing sensation Vijinder Singh.who hails from Haryana, will return to action on April 2 at the Harrow Leisure Centre in London. Vijender Singh blew away Hungary’s Alexander Horvath at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday night to record his fourth successive professional victory.
The undefeated ace now heads to London for the first time in his professional career for his fifth fight as he closes in fast on a title challenge later this year planned for his homeland. This will be an eight round fight for Vijender Singh and his last fight was a six rounder.
Vijender Singh, 30, will feature in a six-round contest on the undercard in Harrow which is headlined by the exciting showdown between Liam Williams and Nav Mansouri for the British and Commonwealth Super-Welterweight titles.
He said, “London here I come! I can’t wait to fight at Harrow and show the London fans just what Vijender Singh is all about. I’ve fought around the country in Manchester, Dublin and Liverpool and now I’m heading to the capital for my fourth professional fight. I have started working hard for my fifth fight which is just two weeks away and aiming at fifth knockout-win in a row.”
“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 round,”
“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.”
Welshman Liam Williams headlines the show when he defends his British and Commonwealth Super-Welterweight titles against Rotherham’s Nav Mansouri.
