Vijender Singh will face-off against Hungary’s Alexander Horvath in his fourth professional bout in Liverpool on the 12th of March. The 30-year-old, who made his debut in professional boxing in October last year, has won all his three bouts thus far and will also travel to India in June to take part in the WBO Asia Belt.

Horvath boasts of an impressive track record, consisting of 5 victories in 7 bouts and has 31 rounds under his belt as compared to Vijender’s 6. Despite being more experienced, Vijender felt that he wouldn't prove to be as a big a threat for him.

“Horvath is a good solid opponent, maybe he will give me a few new tests, he has done more rounds than me and has a bit more experience, but will that compete with the power that I have and when I start landing my shots. I don't believe that he'll be standing around for too long," Vijender said.

Horvath, on his part, felt that in whatever that he has seen him, Vijender doesn't quite provide any different challenge that would give him sleepless nights and cautioned him to be ready for the test.

"Everyone who has gone into the ring with him seem like they are a rabbit in headlights. I have seen nothing from Singh that worries me or causes sleepless nights so I'm fully confident going into the fight and ready to knock him out.

“Three before me have tried and failed to beat Singh, so now I will finally end this pretender's hope of winning a title.I hope that his chin is ready for the punches that I will be landing on them because for once he will be put under a real test by me," he signed off.
