Undefeated Olympic bronze medal winner Vijender Singh (11-0, 8 KOs) will look to extend his record on a card promoted by Round 10 Boxing and MTK Global, in association with Top Rank -- the Indian star's promoter in the United States.
After a winning start in his American debut, Singh will next be seen in action in Dubai on November 22 against a yet-to-be-finalised opponent.
Vijender claimed a TKO win against Mike Snider in his US debut in July. The hard-hitting super middleweight is currently training in Manchester under his trainer Lee Beard, a press release from the organizers stated.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for me to showcase my skills and to keep active as I continue my world title quest,” Vijender said. “I was proud of my last performance back in July, but I was coming off a long layoff. I am rounding into form, and fans are going to see the best version of Vijender Singh when I fight in Dubai."
November’s bill also features the mandatory challenger to WBO junior welterweight title, Jack Catterall. Round 10 Boxing is Dubai’s only exclusive boxing club.
