Vijender Singh will fight his first professional bout on Indian soil come July followed by “something huge” in September-October.

Talking to reporters in London, his UK-based promoter Francis Warren promised a show like none before during Vijender’s India appearances.

“We have big plans for him this year, we’re hoping to do a big show in Delhi around July. Plans are underway, we have something huge around September/October. It’s going to be something that’s never been done before,” Warren said in a press conference without revealing what exactly are their plans.

Vijender has been on a rampage ever since making his debut in the pro circuit last year in Manchester, winning all his three bouts via Knockout so far.
