I will knock Amuzu out early: Vijender

Indian boxing star Vijender Singh is eager to extend is winning run and said he was working hard to knockout his opponent Ernest Amuzu in the early round at Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium in Jaipur on December 23.

Vijender, the WBO Asia Pacific and WBO Oriental Super Middleweight Champion, revealed he was sparring 10 rounds daily with different boxers ahead of his double title defence.

Vijender Singh currently holds a record of 9-0 with seven knockout wins out of which six wins were recorded abroad and 3 in India. This will be his fourth bout in front of home crowd.

Reacting to Amuzu's threat of beating and knocking out, Vijender said, "I know this is a mind game and before this all my nine opponents have tried the same strategy but I am always focussed on my training. Let Ernest do this trash talk, but I am working hard, doing 10 rounds of sparring daily with different boxers".

"My trainers Lee Beard and John Joyce are in India and we have watched videos of Ernest, my previous opponent was a southpaw. Ernest is orthodox, so I have worked a lot on changing my technique according to this opponent. My coaches have worked out strategies against him in the ring. I am almost prepared for this fight."

Vijender said he was gunning to end the year with another knockout win. "I know Ernest is experienced than me in professional boxing with 25 fights and 23 wins but my amateur experience always helps me when I face opponents in the pro boxing ring. I think he should not take me lightly in the ring, I will knock him out in the early rounds. This will be my last fight of 2017 and I would like to end my year on a winning note that too with a knockout win," he added.
