India’s Vijender Singh will make a grand entry into the professional arena as star boxer against one of his toughest opponent Kerry Hope of Australia for the WBO Asia Pacific super middleweight championship title tomorrow.
Vijender Singh has won all his six fights so far, however, Hope has more experience as he has been a professional boxer for 12 years and has been involved in 30 fights overs that period with a record of 23-7.
Vijender talking to media in the pre-bout press conference stated: “This fight will surely decide the future of pro-boxing in the country. It is a step ahead and I am very hopeful that there will be many more such fights in the future. I hope we succeed in this new endeavour.”
Hope stated: “He doesn’t look like he is training as hard as I am.” And Vijender retaliated, “I will show him (Hope) tomorrow how much I have been training. It will be a great fight night.”
