Professional pro boxer, Vijender Singh is sanguine about getting back to the ring in the later months of this year. The champion boxer is currently in a contract with the renowned boxing promoter, Bob Arum’s Top Rank company which signed him in 2018. Vijender Singh played his opening matches under the banner in 2019 which was also his U.S debut. The star boxer emerged triumphant in the American circuit.
“I was supposed to fight in May but that is cancelled for now because of the current situation. But I am hopeful things will improve and I will get to fight later in the year. I think it will work out”, the Super Middleweight champion told PTI.
“Obviously, I am at a loss but there is nothing that can be done. So, you just make peace with it and wait for things to normalise,” added the 34-year old.
The bronze winner in Olympics 2008, is currently training in his home amid the coronavirus lockdown to maintain his fitness and form for the matches be held in the second half of this year, as his trainer Lee Beard would only join him weeks before his championships.
“I have everything at home to ensure that I don’t need to step out. I do my training on my own, which is not unusual because I have the luxury of a trainer only when I am in England,” he said.
The ace boxer had very high expectations regarding his upcoming bouts as the boxer has been preparing for this year’s matches diligently. The athlete maintained his four-streak last year by defeating former Commonwealth champion, Charles Adamu in the super middleweight championship held in Dubai last year.
