With no opponet Vijender Singh's next bout postponed
New Delhi : Indian boxing star Vijender Singh’s has been unbeaten after he turned professional. His next bout was scheduled on April 1 but has to postponed as his promoters are struggling to find an opponent for him.
Boxers in his region are wary of facing him as he has become this dreaded guy, who nobody wants to face.
The fight was also postponed and will be only fixed after the IPL is over. Vijender is unbeaten after eight bouts and is the reigning WBO Asia Pacific champion.
In the April 1 fight night, the 31-year-old was originally scheduled to take on China’s WBO Oriental champion Zulpikar Maimaitiali. But that could not materialise after Maimaitiali backed out of the contest without specifying any reasons.
The Vijender-Zulpikar super middleweight contest was to be a double Asian title fight. The Indian’s WBO Asia-Pacific belt and the Chinese boxer’s WBO Oriental title were to be on the line in a winner-takes-all bout.
Vijender is unbeaten in the circuit, having successfully defended his title in December last year against Tanzania’s Francis Cheka.
