I don’t need extra rounds to finish off Hyuseinov, says Vijender
Indian boxing star Vijender Singh, who competes in his first six rounds contest this Saturday night at the Manchester Arena, says he won’t need the extra rounds to finish off experienced Hungarian Samet Hyuseinov in his third professional bout.
He has steamed through his first two professional opponents since turning pro after a highly decorated amateur career culminating in bronze at the 2008 Olympics Games.
Dusting off Sonny Whiting in three rounds in October and then Dean Gillen inside one in November and with a reluctance of domestic fighters wanting to face Singh, an international opposition has been selected for Vijender’s last fight with Bulgaria’s Hyuseinov taking up the challenge.
Vijender doesn’t see it going beyond three rounds against Hyuseinov. “I feel in tremendous shape and ready to punch holes in Hyuseinov on Saturday night,” Said Vijender. “It’s another progression in my boxing career to move up to six rounds, but I really don’t feel I’ll need them against Hyuseinov. “While it’s good to get rounds and experience under my belt I want excitement and knockouts, the rounds will come as we move up into title fights, right now I want to take opponents out as quickly as I can, three rounds, maybe, against Hyuseinov.
