Recently, Vijender Singh had announced that he is now ready to fight and defeat the British Pakistani boxer, Amir Khan. On this said challege Amir Khan had nothing much to say but this, “I find Vijender’s challenge quite funny, I will ruin his career.”
The 29-year-old had very simple advice for Vijender. “Before calling out big names like me, he needs to build up his experience, some fighters do get very ambitious,” he said.
The two-time world champion, who has recently undergone a wrist surgery, said that he would love to fight with Vijender but for that big billing bout to take place, Vijender still needs a couple of more years of training and experience.
Amir added, “You’ve got the India-Pakistan connection & that will make this bout huge. It will be like India-Pakistan in cricket”.
However, in between all the advice, Amir Khan had high praise for the Indian boxer, “I was just like Vijender when I turned pro, I worked very hard & he needs to do that too. Vijender is skillful but the next ten fights will be crucial for his experience”.
Amir also hinted that he would love to be good friends with Vijender. He said that he has followed Vijender’s career graph closely, “If we fight, the match will be a blockbuster but if it doesn’t happen, I am always going to support him and stand in his corner.”
