Dilbag knocks out rival for hat-trick of wins on pro circuit
Indian boxer Dilbag Singh on Wednesday notched up his third successive win in the professional arena, knocking out WBC Asia title-holder Adili Abulimiti of China in a super middleweight (76kg) category bout in Kunming, China.
Dilbag knocked out Abulimiti in the third round of the four-round contest.
Like the Indian, who is a former Commonwealth Games bronze-medallist, Abulimiti is also relatively new to the pro circuit having fought four bouts before on Wednesday. The Chinese pugilist had won two of these contests, including the vacant WBC title contest, and lost one while drawing another. Dilbag, on the other hand, had knocked out Rocky Alap in his previous bout which was held in Incheon, Korea on October 4. The bout was conducted on the sidelinesof the WBC convention in Kunming where the Professional Boxing Organisation of India was represented by its Secretary Kunal.
