Vijender Singh improved his professional boxing record to 3-0 after a win against Samet Hyuseinov. Vijender, who had earlier defeated Sonny Whiting and Dean Gillen, only took two rounds to win the match against Hyuseinov.
The Indian dominated throughout the first match and had a great game plan throughout. Just 35 seconds into the second round, Vijender pounded his Bulgarian opponent with punches and jabs, which in turn forced the referee to stop the match and give Vijender the win via technical knockout.
Hyuseinov had earlier promised to send Vijender back to India ‘Beaten and broken’ but instead of getting intimidated, Vijender stuck with his plan and came out winning.
“I practice a lot when I am sparring so that helps me finish it off early in actual contest,” Vijender said.
This was the Indian’s first six round bout as the earlier two he had were four round affairs.
“I am happy to get another knockout win and for making it 3-0. For this bout I had done a lot of physical hard work and have improved my technique also which helped to win against an opponent who had the experience of playing 14 bouts,” the Olympic bronze medalist added.
