Ace boxer Vijender Singh, who turned pro this year and had a great start at his pro career, is all set to take on Bulgarian Samet Hyuseinov in his third professional fight on 19th December at Manchester Arena. Vijender has already won his first two fights, against Sonny Whiting in October (TKO) and Dean Gillen in November (KO).
Speaking on the eve of the tie, Vijender Singh said: I have seen Samet’s record, it’s not impressive. Out of 14 fights, he has won 7, I don’t think it will be going to effect me. I have prepared hard this time and tried my new techniques. During three weeks of my training more focus was on sparring with some of my best fellow boxers. I am ready and confident of giving Samet a tough time in the ring. He speaks a lot in the media about me, but all I can say is I am excited to go in the ring today and it will be an interesting fight this time for all the fans. I will show him what I can do in the ring. Fans will enjoy and watch another knockout.
Further detailing about his professional career, he added “I am taking my professional career step by step. Fighting every month is good for me and it is helping me in getting more focused. I am settled now and use to of the local conditions. Every day is a new learning for me and this learning process is really painful. I am excited to have my fight in India next year. I am sure that fight will be a huge boost for Indian boxing.”
The opponent Samet Hyuseinov, on the other hand, on this tie, said “I am not worried on taking Vijender Singh as I have not seen his fight. I would never fight if I was always worried of my opponents. I’m a fighter that is what I do. He has two fights and two wins at some time he will get hit back and see how he reacts then. I take it each fight as it comes. I don’t think Vijender is ready to fight someone like me yet and he is saying what he will do to me as if I don’t exist and he will stop me. I’m the most dangerous opponent to date for him. I am ready to knockout Vijender in early rounds.”
This six round contest will start at 10:30 pm IST.
