16th July 2016 - Points win over Kerry Hope
Indian star Vijender Singh is making serious waves in the middleweight division. The 30-year-old 6-0 fighter is closing in on a huge Delhi homecoming this summer after winning all of his professional fights by KO.
Singh comes with an immense amateur background wining Silver at the 2006 and 2014 Commonwealth Games; Bronze at the 2006 Asian Games, 2008 Beijing Olympics, 2009 World Amateur Championships and 2010 Commonwealth Games; Gold at the 2010 Asian Games, and rated as the world’s number one middleweight in 2009.
His Bronze medal victory in Beijing was a landmark event in India’s rich sporting history as it was the nation’s first ever boxing medal in the Games and he is credited for the incredible surge in boxing’s popularity in his home country since.
On Saturday 10 October at the Manchester Arena, Singh stopped Sonny Whiting in the third and penultimate round with a vicious combo that showed the decorated amateur carries power into the pro ranks.
Vijender continued his fine start to the pro ranks wiping out Dean Gillen in the first round at the National Stadium in Dublin.
Third and final fight of 2015
Singh picked up three wins from three, stopping Samet Hyuseinov in the second round at the Manchester Arena on December 19.
