New Delhi: Undefeated Indian professional boxer Vijender Singh on Sarturday invited batting great Sachin Tendulkar for his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Asia title fight in the national capital.

The Beijing Olympics bronze medallist will have his first professional home bout in New Delhi on June 11. Since turning pro last October, the 30-year-old has won all his four fights.

Vijender was on a 10-day Holi break in India before his next bout on April 30 in London. Then, he will have the continental title bout in June against a yet-to-be-decided opponent.

Earlier, he met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed about the shambolic state of boxing administration in the country.

The middleweight boxer also invited Modi for the June bout.

"I told him about my fights so far and how professional boxing can grow in India. Besides, I have also invited him for my fight in India in June.

"He is a busy man but he said he would definitely try to make it for my bout," he had said.
