Star Indian boxer Vijender Singh, who has forayed into the professional arena, was felicitated on Monday by the Haryana Association in South Hall on the occasion of Haryana Day.

The event was attended by High Commission of India in London, officials from Indian High Commission, Indian-origin MPs and mayors.

“It’s a special moment for me that Haryana Association in UK has recognised my efforts and given me this honour on the Haryana Day. I am very happy with the kind of support I am getting from all the Indians here in UK,” Vijender said.

Vijender made his professional debut last month, notching up a Technical Knockout against Brit Sonny Whiting. He will next be seen in action on November 7 against another englishman Dean Gillen in Dublin.
