Last chance saloon for Vijender SinghZeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: Olympic bronze medallist Vijender Singh will be under immense pressure as he, along with five other Indian boxers, fights it out for a spot in the 2012 London Olympics at the Asian qualifying event in Astana, Kazakhstan, from April 4 to 13.

Vijender missed a chance to qualify for Olympics after making an early exit in the World championship in Azerbaijan last year. But with his middleweight category (75kg) having four slots up for grabs, he is likely to make the cut this time.


The event starting April 4 in Astana, Kazakhstan is Asian boxing`s final qualifying tournament for the London Games and 25 slots are up for grab in 10 weight categories. Apart from Vijender Singh, other members in the team eyeing for an Olympic berth include: M Suranjoy Singh (52kg), Shiva Thapa (56kg), Sumit Sangwan (81kg), Manpreet Singh (91kg), Paramjeet Samota (+91kg).

L Devendro Singh, Jai Bhagwan, Manoj Kumar and Vikas Krishan have already qualified for the Olympics during the first Olympic Qualifiers (last year`s World Championships in Azerbaijan).
