Vijender’s next fight on November 22, opponent to be announced later
New Delhi, Oct 8 (PTI): After a winning start in the American professional circuit, Indian boxing star Vijender Singh will next be seen in action in Dubai on November 22 against a yet-to-be-finalised opponent.
The unbeaten Vijender (11-0, 8 KOs) will look to extend his unbeaten record on a card promoted by Round 10 Boxing and MTK Global, in association with Top Rank — the Indian’s promoters in the USA. The name of his opponent will be announced later.
Vijender claimed a Technical Knockout against Mike Snider in his US debut fight in July.
The hard-hitting super-middleweight is currently training in Manchester under his trainer Lee Beard, a press release from the organisers stated.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for me to showcase my skills and to keep active as I continue my world title quest,” Vijender said.
“I was proud of my last performance back in July, but I was coming off a long layoff. I am rounding into form, and fans are going to see the best version of Vijender Singh when I fight in Dubai,” he added. November’s bill also features WBO world No.1 Jack Catterall.
Round 10 Boxing is Dubai’s only exclusive boxing club.
