New Delhi: Inside the ring, he might be dangerous, but outside, the heartthrob is no less lethal. Star Indian boxer Vijendra Singh announced much to the shock of millions of his female fans that he is going to get married coming Tuesday!

Yes, you heard it right. Vijendra will tie the knot with a Delhi girl, Archana.

The Olympic and World Championship bronze-medalist, who returned to the country today after winning a bronze in the Arafura Games, revealed that he will tie the nuptial in his native village Kaluwas in Bhiwani.

"I am getting married on May 17, my would-be bride`s name is Archana and she is from Delhi and that`s all I want to tell about her. It is a private occasion and I hope my privacy is respected," Vijender said after landing here this morning.

The 25-year-old Haryana-lad, who won a gold medal at the Asian Games last year, had earlier denied reports of the impending marriage which came out last week, saying that they were inaccurate.

"The tone of certain reports was offending. I wanted to keep it under wraps till the time I was in Australia because I didn`t want unnecessary media spotlight on the family of my fiancée or my family," Vijender said.

"It`s a new chapter of my life and I am obviously excited. It`s a bout in which loss is victory," he chuckled.

Well, the jaw breaker just turned heartbreaker!
