Indian boxing superstar, Olympic medallist, Vijender Singh broke into the World Boxing Organisation’s (WBO) rankings at 10th spot after improving his professional record to 7-0 against Australia’s Kerry Hope last month.
Vijender Singh was unbeaten with six wins before facing Hope for the WBC European champion last month. He beat Hope in a grueling 10-round contest to lift the title. Currently, Vijender is unbeaten with seven wins, out of which six have been knockouts.
“It’s just the start for me, one day I want to be the No.1 in the world. That’s my dream and I am sure I will achieve it,” Vijender Singh told PTI.
Vijender Singh just moved ahead of rising American star Trevor McCumby, who is also undefeated with 22 wins and 17 knockout wins. A rung above Vijender is US-based Russian Matt Korobov, who has 26 wins in 27 fights so far.
