Royer, who is 29 years old, will be the Indian’s
The fight against Matiouze Royer will be the first eight-round contest for the Indian, who has been fighting four and six bouts, although that has not made much of a difference with Vijender winning all his four bouts through knock-outs. Vijender had made his pro-boxing debut in October last year and has been on an unbeaten run, defeating Sonny Whiting, Dean Gillen, Samet Hyuseinov and Alexander Horvath via knockouts.
“2016 is shaping up to be a massive year for me. I have a busy few months ahead of me and will be looking to carry on my KO streak with another big performance against Royer. He’s an experienced fighter so I’ll need to be at my very best to overcome him. Once I’ve dealt with him I’ll be looking ahead to my next date in Bolton before gearing up for my massive homecoming in India this summer,” Vijender was quoted as saying by PTI.
Vijender’s bout in India is scheduled for June 11, and he will be fighting an unnamed opponent for the WBO Asia title belt.
