New Delhi: Undefeated Indian professional boxer Vijender Singh will face Andrzej Soldra in his sixth professional bout on May 13, ahead of his super middleweight WBO Asia Title Fight in Delhi on June 11.
Vijender's sixth pro bout will be held at Macron Stadium, Premier Suite, Bolton.
The 30-year-old Indian is undefeated in five fights — winning them all by knockouts — in mere 14 rounds of action.
In contrast, his Polish opponent — also a 30-year-old — comes with a record of 12 wins with 5 knockouts from 16 fights. Besides his 81 rounds in pro circles, Soldra also has a brilliant record in amateur career with 82 wins from 98 fights.
Soldra has only been stopped thrice in a professional career spanning over five years and will be looking to spoil the party when he makes his first appearance in UK.
And ahead of the bout, both the boxers have started issuing threats.
"I have seen videos of Soldra he is a good opponent but I am preparing very hard to give him a tough time in the ring. He's very experienced though and with 16 fights and 81 rounds he's got the advantage over me in that department but I will stop him," PTI qouted Vijender as saying.
"I know this fight is very crucial for me and I need to continue my unbeaten record and it's important that I put on a commanding performance against Soldra to keep on course for my title shot and my homecoming. I am really excited to finish off my sixth fight on a winning note and then compete for Asia title in front of my home crowd," he added.
Soldra also shared his byte, and warned the Indian boxer.
"Vijender has never met anyone like me and he will realise what it is like fighting with a real professional boxer on the May 13. I will take great delight in handing Vijender Singh in his first loss and sending him back home to India beaten and broken," he said.
"In fact I will tell you what I will do to him, I will smash him to the body to loosen him up and then a right hand to knock him out, just watch me," he added.
