New Delhi: Indian boxing star Vijender Singh’s maiden title bout, scheduled to be held here, has been postponed by a month to July but the trailblazing pugilist today said he will not take any break from training as it would upset his rhythm.
Vijender, who beat Poland’s Andrzej Soldra via Technical Knockout in Bolton last night to register his sixth successive win, was originally scheduled to fight for the WBO Asia title on June 11 here.
However, the big event has been pushed back by a month due to logistical reasons.
“I am really looking forward to the India bout, it is going to be a huge moment for me to step inside the ring in front of my home fans. And that is why I am not going to take any break from training because I want to be at my best. It is technically not good either to take a break as the body has to remain in rhythm,” Vijender told PTI in a telephonic chat from Manchester.
