“I dedicate this win to the martyrs of Indian Armed Forces during Jammu and Pathankot attacks”, said Vijender after his win. The bout against the Hungarian was his first win this year and fourth consecutive three consecutive knockouts last year. Explaining the probable reason for his emphatic performance, Vijender said, “I was better prepared for my fight this time because this fight was postponed for almost a month.”

Vijender took the opportunity to thank the Indian diaspora for their support and turning up in large numbers for the match. Analysing the match, his trainer, Lee Beard said, “Vijender was in control of the fight from early stage and enjoyed himself there. He took his time because he wanted to get some rounds under his belt. We have been working on getting his feet and distance right and get himself into a position to land meaningful shots”.

Looking into future, both Vijender and Lee know they have a lot to achieve. Vijender said, “I am thrilled to get my fourth professional and excited for what the future holds for me. I am happy to get another knockout win and really want to push on from here with some big performances in 2016”. Lee was very pleased with the performance of the Indian athlete and said, “There is still much more to come”.
