Vijender Singh to fight on Saunders-Bursak card
Undefeated Indian star Vijender Singh will fight next on the undercard of the big World Championship card at the Copper Box Arena, London, on Saturday 30th April.
It had been announced that Singh would feature on the Saturday 2nd April show at the Harrow Leisure Centre in London, but following a reschedule he has been moved, instead, onto the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO World Middleweight title defence against Max Bursak.
Singh, who took his record to 4-0 in Liverpool earlier this month with a blistering fourth round stoppage of Alexander Horvath, will fight in a four-round contest against an opponent to be announced.
The red-hot star will then fight on Friday 13th May at the Premier Suite in the Macron Stadium, Bolton, on the undercard of his stablemate Jack Catterall who defends his WBO Intercontinental Super-Lightweight title against Joe Hughes.
In the summer he is scheduled to make his highly-anticipated homecoming in India where he will fight for the first time as a professional in his homeland in front of thousands of his adoring fans.
An excited Singh said, “I’m thrilled to be fighting on the same card as the WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday 30th April at the Copper Box Arena. Saunders is in the position that I want to be in one day, the middleweight champion of the world. Then I can look forward to my next date on Friday 13th May in Bolton, where my good friend and gym-mate Jack Catterall is headlining, which will be another great night. So it’s a busy few months ahead and then of course I will be making my big homecoming in India which will be absolutely amazing and I can’t wait.”
WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders makes the first defence of his title against “Mad” Max Bursak and headlines an action-packed card that also features: The Vacant European Cruiserweight title between Ovill McKenzie v Dmytro Kucher; Ryan Walsh defends his British Featherweight Championship against James Tennyson.
