Vijender will now take on British boxer Dean Gillen in his second professional bout to be held at the National Stadium.
Vijender (75kg) today headed to Dublin where he is scheduled to take on British boxer Dean Gillen in his second professional bout to be held at the National Stadium.
Vijender said it felt nice to be complimented by a boxer, who has held the WBA and IBF world titles in the past and is currently the WBC Silver welterweight title holder.
It was very sweet of him to say all that he did, I am flattered beyond words. He is a very nice guy and I have been speaking on and off with him ever since coming to the UK. I will continue to reach out to him whenever I need because he is obviously a huge star and a veteran in the circuit. He wished me luck when I first came to London, Vijender told PTI over phone from Manchester.
The Indian, who celebrated his 30th birthday last week, made a smashing debut in the circuit by notching up a Technical Knockout against Sonny Whiting on October 10.
