AMIR’S CHALLANGE ACCEPTED BY VIJENDER
Finally the challenge of Pakistani origin British Boxer Amir Khan is accepted by recently turned professional Indian boxer Vijender Singh.
The British boxer recently wished to fight with Vijender Singh in India. Amir has 34 pro fights to his name opposite to Vijender’s four.
Commenting on Amir’s challenge, Vijender said: “I accept the challenge of Amir Khan and I am sure this fight will be a big boost to boxing in our country.”
“As we both fight in different weight categories so will have to see whether Amir (middleweight) gains or I (super middleweight) have to lose weight. I have started my professional boxing career last year only and have made only 4 appearances in the pro ring.”
“It might take me just one more year when I will be ready to fight against Amir Khan. I am sure this fight will attract international limelight and attention. Currently I am focusing on my next fight scheduled for April 30 against Matiouze Royer at Copper Box Arena,” he added.
So the fans have to wait for a year and more to watch this epic Indo–Pak fight.
