JAIPUR (TIP): Ace Indian boxer Vijender Singh on Wednesday exuded confidence of ending the year on a high note as he takes on African champion Ernest Amuzu of Ghana at the Sawai Man Singh Indoor Stadium here on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Indian, who is WBO Oriental Super Middleweight and WBO Asia Pacific champions, laughed at his opponent’s recent statement that he would leave the crowd favourite “beaten and broken” in the upcoming bout.

“Perhaps Amuzu has not goggled about me otherwise he would not have dared to talk like that about me. Only time will tell who is going to thrash whom,” said Vijuender, who holds a 9-0 professional record. “I can’t predict how long would the fight last but I can assure you that the first round of the bout would set the tone. I am an experienced boxer and I know what and how to do. I have undergone rigorous training sessions for almost two months. I am fully prepared physically and mentally to defend my titles and want to end my year on a winning note in front of my own countrymen,” he added.

Vijender also said he has serious doubts about how his opponent will last before him on Saturday.

“Undoubtedly Amuzu is an experienced boxer and capable of giving me a few new tests. He has done more rounds than me and fought in title fights but he will have to compete with my power. I don’t think he would be standing there for too long,” he said.
