Vijender Singh notches up 4th Professional win via KO
There was no stopping Indian boxing star Vijender Singh as he notched up his fourth successive knockout professional win by pummeling Hungary’s Alexander Horvath in under three rounds.
Vijender had little trouble outpunching his opponent, who failed to get up after being thrown off balance by his body blows in the third round of the six-round contest of the middlewight (75kg) category late last night.
Dedicates victory to Pathankot and J&K terror attack victims
“I dedicate this win to the martyrs of Indian Armed Forces during Jammu and Pathankot attacks,” Vijender said in a post on social micro-blogging site Twitter.
The bout against Horvath was Vijender’s first of the year.
The 30-year-old Indian, who went into the contest on the back of three successive knockout triumphs, continued to be a cut above his rivals, who talk big but deliver little inside the ring.
“My target is to win the Asia title in front of my home crowd and looking forward to register two more knockout wins in April before I play in India,” he added.
