India’s ace boxer Vijender Singh has been absent from limelight since he last surfaced in news when police raided his apartment and found 26 kilograms of drugs like heroin and others which were valued to be at $20 million. He, however, knew that his career will not come to a screeching halt anytime soon. He recently announced his comeback in pro-boxing through a match. His comeback match was with Sonny Whiting who is Manchester’s local favourite.
Vijender entered the ring with blaring Punjabi music. Whiting, on the other hand, had promised to teach Vijender and India a brutal lesson. However, after the fight it looks like Whiting won’t be able to say that to anyone again because Vijender knocked him out in the third round. During the first round neither of the two was seen taking any risks, however, Singh looked more composed and technical in the ring out of the two.
Once the match proceeded to the second round, Vijender Singh seemed to have established his jab while managing to successfully pressurize Whiting by just constantly pushing the fight’s pace. Whiting was seen spending most of the time in this round on his back-foot. In the third round, however, Olympic medallist Singh dictated his terms and took the match swiftly where he wanted it to go. He carefully defended Whiting’s overhead punches and then landed three or more punches right at the target in just one go which made the end result crystal clear.
We congratulate Vijender Singh for his big victory and wish him luck for his next fight.
