Vijender Singh vs. Zulpikar Maimaitiali Set For High Stakes Battle

The World Boxing Organisation (WBO) has sanctioned the WBO Asia Pacific and WBO Oriental super middleweight titles to be at stake for the upcoming fight between Vijender Singh of India and Zulpikar Maimaitiali in first week of August in Mumbai.

Vijender is current WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight champion Singh while Zulpikar is WBO Oriental Super Middleweight Champion. .

 Neerav Tomar of IOS Boxing Promotions said: "We are happy to know on WBO's decision sanctioning Asia's biggest battle between Vijender Singh and Zulpikar Maimaithiali. The sanction is in place and we can now move forward with Zulpikar's team SECA to finalise terms and locking the date and venue in Mumbai."


Leon Panoncillo Jr., Chairman WBO Asia Pacific said: "After reviewing fight records of both the participants, I am satisfied with their past results and therefore approved this unification bout of the WBO Asia Pacific/WBO Oriental super middleweight titles." .

Both the WBO title holders are number one boxers in their respective countries, India and China, as they both remain unbeaten since the time they made their pro debuts in the field of professional boxing. .

Vijender, who recently retained his WBO Asia Pacific title, entered professional boxing in 2015.

Vijender has 8 wins under his belt with 7 of them being won by knockout and 1 by unanimous decision. He has played 30 rounds, which puts him a few rounds above his next opponent. Vijender won his maiden title last year in July after defeating Kerry Hope of Australia.

Later in the month of December the golden boy of Indian boxing was challenged by Francis Cheka of Tanzania for his title, which he gracefully retained. 

The 22-year-old Chinese boxer, Maimaitiali, has fought 8 bouts with 24 rounds under his belt. 

Zulpikar has won 8 bouts with six of them coming by knockout and one draw on his ledger. He also made his debut in the year 2015, and won the WBO Oriental title last year in July by defeating Thomas Mashali of Tanzania by TKO.

Can't wait to see this, imo Vijender doesn't fight enough. He is a massive star in India and has the potential to be big outside of that market too. It's always fun seeing Olympians in the pros.
