Bhiwani sensation Vijender Singh will give his personal best to win against Matiouze Royer of France this Saturday.
The bout between the Indian Boxing sensation and the French terror will start at 10:30 pm IST on Saturday and will be live on Star Sports 2 and HD 2. The Indian Boxer has promised his fans another big knockout win on his return to Stratford’s Copper Box Arena this Saturday after his four knockout wins in as many bouts during his recently started Professional Boxing career. The last time he featured in Copper Box was as an amateur during the London version of Summer Olympic Games where he reached quarterfinals.
Recalling his experiences at the Copper Box arena, Vijender said,” I thoroughly enjoyed fighting in Stratford as an amateur. The Copper Box Arena is an amazing venue to fight at and I’m really looking forward returning and putting on another explosive performance for my fans in England and India.”
The Saturday bout is deemed as his toughest as of now, all due to the fact the Royer is an experienced Professional boxer with 44 bouts under his experiences. This is not the only fact about the French, but there is another thing about him to terrorize any competitor. He has only been stopped twice in his career of seven years in professional rings, which means that Singh, 30, with just 4 bouts to his credits, will have to be at his very best when he takes on the French terror.
Vijender, who’s is aware of this fact, commented, “Saturday night is going to be tough, Royer has 250 gruelling rounds under his belt compared to my 9. I know he’s capable of mixing it up and making life difficult for me but he won’t have a reply for my knockout power.”
“Once I start landing on him it’ll be all over, there’s no doubt about that. I’m not going in to this fight looking for a big knockout but I’m predicting another big finish; if the opportunity comes to take him out I’ll grab it with both hands,”he further added.
Also came a news that if the Indian boxer keeps performing impressively, he may get a chance to fight against the British- Pakistani Amir Khan who had recently challenged him to fight in India.
Speaking about the news, Singh commented,“That’s good, I’m very interested in that fight. I’d accept the challenge 100%. Obviously there’s the difference in weight but I’m sure we could get that sorted somewhere down the line if I carry on progressing. It would be absolutely huge in India.”
