One of the most highly decorated boxers in India, Vijender Singh, who won a bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics has signed a promotional contract with Bob Arum’s Top Rank promotions.

Vijender Singh turned professional back in 2015 when he signed with Frank Warren’s Queensbury promotions and made his debut against Sonny Whitting at the Manchester Arena on the undercard of a world title fight between Terry Flanagan and Diego Magdaleno.

Vijender has had ten fights since then in England and India and has won all of his bouts with seven of them coming by the way of knockout.

Co-founder of Top Rank promotions, Bob Arum said that he is very excited about promoting Singh and wants to make him a big star in the United States.

Top Rank is very excited to enter into a contract with Vijender,” Arum said. “We intend to make him a big star in the United States and look forward to him participating in major events in India, where he is already a major superstar.

Current WBO Asia-Pacific champion Vijender Singh is equally excited about signing with one of the best promoters in the world. He will make his debut in early 2019.

I am really excited to be on board with Bob Arum and Top Rank,” Singh said. “I have always wanted to work with someone who is the best in the business, and I know Top Rank has been the driving force behind boxing’s biggest superstars, including Oscar De La Hoya, Floyd Mayweather, and Miguel Cotto. I am eagerly waiting for a date for my U.S. debut to take on the world and keep the Indian flag on the world boxing map fluttering high. I also want to thank Mr. Neerav Tomar and IOS Boxing Promotions for helping get me to this point of my professional career, and I look forward to working with Top Rank.

CEO of IOS promotions, Neerav Tomar is equally excited about this partnership. He is Vijender’s promoter in India and has helped guide his professional career.

We at IOS are thrilled to be signing with the top boxing promoter in the world today, Mr. Bob Arum,” said Tomar, CEO of IOS Boxing Promotions. “There was only one choice when we decided to go with a promoter in the United States, and Bob has done so much for professional boxers over the years and has been instrumental in building the careers of so many of the best boxers in the world today. We are honored to be promoted by him, and we look forward to a great future and shaping Vijender as a force to be reckoned with in the world of professional boxing.

Vijender has beaten the likes of former WBC super middleweight champion and current WBA light heavyweight champion Badou Jack in the amateurs at the Beijing Olympics. He also holds a victory over IBF middleweight title challenger Sergiy Derevyanchenko back in world championships in 2009, where he won a Bronze medal.

He last fought against Ernest Amuzu at the Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium in Jaipur, where he beat the Ghanian boxer via complete domination over ten rounds.
