Vijender Singh, one man who changed the face of the boxing world in India. He first created waves when he won the bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. From there on his fame has been on a steady rise. He is a proud recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, India’s highest sporting honour as well as the Padma Shri. He took the media by storm once more when he decided to go professional.
Vijender Singh’s professional boxing career may have begun a little over a year ago, but he’s already created a lot of sparks in the world of professional boxing. So far he has been unbeaten and currently holds the title of WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight Champion. A title he earned after defeating Australia’s Kerry Hope earlier this year. This riveting match was held at Delhi’s Thyagaraj Sports Complex, the same venue where Vijender Singh is gearing up to defend his title against Francis Cheka.
Night of the Champions – The Pro Boxing Competition is back again in Delhi. This time Vijender Singh has to defend his title against Tanzania’s Francis Cheka. Cheka promises to be a formidable challenger. Vijender Singh may be undefeated with a record of seven out of seven wins, but Francis Cheka brings with him a lot of experience having been a part of three hundred rounds in his career. This match will definitely be an engaging one since both boxers have a lot on the line.
