New Delhi: Indian boxing star Vijender Singh won the WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight title by defeating Chinese rival Zulpikar Maimaitiali in a close encounter.
For Vijender’s fans, it was a double-happy moment because they won the WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight title also.
It was a consistent ninth win in the professional career of Beijing Olympics bronze medal winner Vijender. Vijender used his stature and experience very well.
Chinese boxers had to adopt defensive tactics. The Chinese boxer tried to punish Vijender five times below and the referee also warned him.
After winning, he said that despite winning, I did not want the title. He said that I want to give my title to Maitatiyali so that there is a message of peace on the border.
Vijender said that he had first thought that these Chinese goods will not do much, but this fight has been very good with hope. The Olympic bronze medalist boxer said that the Chinese boxer had a lot of surprise with his fight.
After the victory, Team India’s former player Virender Sehwag also congratulated Vijender. He wrote, “The fight was difficult. He wrote Enjoyed Hakka Noodles while watching ur fight & you made Chinese Hakka Bakka
