A New Title
THE WBO Asia-Pacific title won and defended successfully, Indian boxing star Vijender Singh will now be on the prowl for a new belt and could be challenging for the Commonwealth or the Oriental crown in the next couple of months.
Up against Tanzania’s former world champion Francis Cheka in his Super Middleweight title defence clash Saturday night, Vijender took less than 10 minutes to score a knock-out win and remain undefeated in his professional career, which is eight fights old now.
Next up for him could be a Commonwealth title fight in Leicester. The Commonwealth Super Middleweight is currently held by British boxer Luke Blackledge, who has 22 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses to show for in his 27-fight career so far.
“I don’t have any plan for the new year right now. Fighting in Delhi or fighting abroad, it doesn’t make a difference to me. We will think about the next opponent,” was the 31-year-old Haryana-lad’s nonchalant response to a query on his schedule for next year after last night’s bout.
