Vijender Singh kept his unbeaten run in Pro Boxing alive with yet another knockout win over Hungary’s Alexander Horvath at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. The Bhiwani boxer achieved the knockout victory in the third round after being the one with the upper hand in the first two rounds as well.

With the win, Vijender’s record in Pro Boxing stands at four bouts, four wins and four knockouts.

This was Vijender’s first fight of 2016 after his three wins last year. His first two opponents lacked any prior experience but the third was against a wee experienced Bulgarian Samet Hyuseinov. Horvath in comparison has a better record of five wins from seven bouts but on Saturday night, it didn’t show.

Vijender dominated proceedings with numerous left jabs into Horvath to leave him jarred and bruised as the first round drew to a close. The second round saw the Hungarian move around the ring to force the former Olympian to reach forward to make any sort of impact. The tactic succeeded to an extent with Vijender becoming less influential but never really being perturbed by his opponent in the red corner.

The win was sealed in the third round as Horvath’s right arm was injured and the referee counted down to raise Vijender’s arm for yet another victory.

It was later announced that Vijender will have two more bouts in April and May before the title bout scheduled for June in New Delhi.

    Give this boxer his due credit. The press is only obsessed by cricket and badminton. Business houses and sports loving big shots/ industrialists should sponsor this upcoming lad. Come on open your purses, gentlemen.
