A day after Pakistani pro-boxer Amir Khan said that he’d love to fight Vijender Singh, the Indian boxer accepted his challenge. However, it will take at least a year for boxing fans to witness this epic bout of Indo-Pak boxing rivalry.
Khan, who is a senior pro boxer in middleweight category has 34 professional fights to his name as compared to Vijender, who has just 4. Moreover, Vijender fights in the super middleweight category and hence, either Khan will have to gain weight or Vijender will have to lose some if they want to provide fans with a visually spectacular boxing match.
While accepting Khan’s challenge, Vijender quoted to DNA, “I accept the challenge of Amir Khan and I am sure this fight will be a big boost to boxing in our country.” He further added, “I am sure this fight will attract international limelight and attention. Currently, I am focusing on my next fight scheduled for 30 April against Matiouze Royer at Copper Box Arena.”
