Beijing Olympics bronze medallist Vijender Singh will return to the ring for his next professional boxing bout on August 17 in Raipur.
In a sport where first impressions often last, former Indian amateur boxing champion Vijender Singh is coming back to the ring after his pro debut earlier this month. The boxer from Haryana lost his first bout against Ghana’s Sulley Muntasser but has already moved on from that bitter experience at the MGM hotel in New Delhi.

- Vijender is simply focused on doing the basics right after having worked hard over recent months. Not taking anything for granted, the former Olympic medalist is looking forward to starting from scratch and earning his 13th win in his pro boxing career, which began in 2015.
“Records are intended to be broken. It is all essential for the game,”
Vijender Singh said.
“I generally battle like it’s my most memorable battle. When I begin preparing, I’m like a clean canvas; I learn everything once more. I stand by listening to everything my mentors say to me and begin once again,”
the 2008 Beijing Olympics bronze medallist said.
Star Indian boxer Vijender Singh would rather not convey the stuff of keep going year’s maiden on the expert circuit as he gets back to the ring on Wednesday, saying, “I generally battle like it’s my first.”. Since turning master in 2015, Vijender was unbeaten till the last Walk with a lucky 12-0 record, including eight knockouts. Yet, that changed in Spring March last year, while Russia’s Artysh Lopsan finished his triumphant run through a TKO in Goa.
As he prepares for his next battle against the reigning national West Africa Boxing Association champion, Ghana’s Eliasu Sulley, on August 17, Vijender’s mantra is basic: eliminate all thoughts of the past sessions.
Frustrated by the lack of competition and COVID-19 restrictions, Vijender had arranged the bout with Lopsan. But, fighting for the first time in 16 months, he had to do without his team, which included trainer Lee Beard.
The British boxing coach, who has prepared proficient beginnings like Ricky Hatton, has been directing Vijendra from the beginning of his expert profession. Under his tutelage, the chap secured the WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental centre-weight titles.
Vijender, who conveyed India’s most memorable Olympic and men’s championship medals in 2008 and 2009, everything considered, feels battling without his group was a huge risk, one that cost him.
I gained a significant example from that session in the future. If someone asks me for an exhortation, I’ll let them know pro boxing is a serious business; never do without your team. In the event that you are certain beyond a shadow of a doubt, just go; in any case, don’t face the challenge.”
The 36-year-old was horrified by his own exhibition where following a moment and nine seconds into the fifth round, the referee had pronounced him a failure.
Not at all; I was extremely sure then, at that point, But rather when I saw my session, I was stunned by my performance. I felt how I could do that. That isn’t Vijendra Singh.
All that is in the past now for the strong six-footer, who appears to be ready to get his thirteenth success.
Indeed, pressure is there; however, I’m sure in light of the fact that I have my team around me.
A sporting icon, at whatever point, Vijender communicates with youthful and forthcoming boxers in India. One is guaranteed to hear, “Vijendra Bhaiya inspired us.”
At the point when boxers request guidance, I say to them, ‘whatever chance you get, snatch it. There is only one life; there ought not to be a disappointment. In my life, I have done everything, whether it is politics, movies, tv etc.
