Vijender Singh is without a doubt the most famous Indian Boxer ever. Not only was he the first Indian to win a boxing Olympic medal, but he was also the first Indian to win a regional WBO title in professional boxing.
Vijender Singh turned professional back in 2015 against Sonny Whitting and knocked him out via TKO in the third round. He has amassed a professional record of 11-0 with 8KOs. Last year he signed a professional record with Top Rank Promotions and made his US debut earlier this year against Mike Snider, where he won via TKO in the fourth round.
Vijender Singh earlier this month said that he is eyeing a world title bout in 2020 and no one wants to see him win a title more than former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury.
“It (India) is a great boxing country. It (boxing) is very big in India. You have a great boxer in Vijender Singh and I hope he can go on to win the world title for India,” said Fury, addressing an international media call.
“I would love to come to India and fight there. Hopefully, it will happen in the future.”
Fury is fighting against Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel later this month.
