Vijender Singh extended his winning streak in Pro Boxing to 6-0 after a comfortable knockout victory over Poland’s Andrzej Soldra in Bolton on Friday night.

The result means Vijender stays unbeaten in Pro Boxing and has won all his bouts by a knockout. His next fight sees the Indian travelling back home for a WBO sanctioned title fight in New Delhi on June 13.

Competing in his first eight round bout, Vijender got the job done in the third round with Soldra considered “not in a position to continue.”

Vijender started off strongly to send his opponent to the canvas with a fearsome right hand jab. The second round saw little to separate the two as Soldra did well to stick to Vijender and reduce the flurry of blows. The third round started with both exchanging quick punches but it was Vijender who got the bigger of the blows to leave a huge gash underneath the Polish boxer’s right eye. Soon enough, the referee stopped the bout with Soldra clearly unable to continue.

Later Vijender said, “I am thrilled to get my sixth professional victory and excited for my homecoming title fight.

Soldra was a good opponent but my punches replied to him. I think this fight was a horror show for him. I am happy that before my title fight, I am able to have six knockout wins. By winning first eight round fight, my confidence level has really gone up and this is a step forward heading towards title fight”.

“The support I have received from everyone here in UK and back home in India has been absolutely phenomenal. Now I will start preparing for my title fight in India. I am happy I will fight in front of my home crowd soon,” said the Bhiwani born boxer.
