Around two years back, Vijender Singh turned into a pro and now he is making his tour to Mumbai. He considers this city as his home and his sole concern is to promote this game. According to him,“We want to take the sport to every corner of the country. We are going to Mumbai now and then we will move to another city, maybe even Chennai. It has to be a pan-India sport promotion.”
Also this is a good opportunity for him to promote this sport as he will looks forward to be king of Asia and the Orient when he will fight China’s Zulpikar Maimaitiali, who was scheduled to fight him last August.
Though Vijender is not much familiar to his Chinese opponent, he is not at all tensed. He said,“I have beaten a lot of Chinese boxers during my amateur days and I know how they play. I’m not bothered about him much. I know he is a southpaw. I had discussions with my training staff. That’s it. We will gather more information about him and then continue my training.”
Zulpikar’s track record reveals a pretty picture about him. With nine bouts (27 rounds) under his belt, the 22-year-old has won eight matches with six KOs. Vijender’s record is almost better with seven KOs in his eight bouts so far. The fight between them will be a tough one and will be interesting to see.
