Poland’s Andrzej Soldra, Vijender Singh’s sixth pro boxing opponent, might be his toughest till date. The fight is scheduled for 13th May at Macron Stadium, Premier Suite in Bolton and Andrzej is not pulling back his verbal punches. Tough talks before bouts is fairly common in the pro boxing world to create hype before a fight. But Andrzej also has the goods to back his words up. he has so far won 12 of his 16 pro fights, 5 of them via knock outs. With his pro boxing experience of 81 rounds, he has proven his ability to withstand longer fights.
The 30 year old boxer is evenly matched in terms of age and has 82 wins in 98 amateur fights. This could be Vijender’s toughest fight ever but he has to face harder opponents as he moves up the pro boxing ladder. Andrzej said, “Vijender has never met anyone like me and he will realise what it is like fighting with a real professional boxer on the 13 May. I will take great delight in handing Vijender Singh in his first loss and sending him back home to India beaten and broken. In fact I will tell you what I will do to him, I will smash him to the body to loosen him up and then a right hand to knock him out, just watch me.”
Vijender commented on his next opponent by saying, “I have seen videos of Soldra he is a good opponent but I am preparing very hard to give him a tough time in the ring. He’s very experienced though and with 16 fights and 81 rounds he’s got the advantage over me in that department but I will stop him. I know this fight is very crucial for me and I need to continue my unbeaten record and it’s important that I put on a commanding performance against Soldra to keep on course for my title shot and my homecoming. I am really excited to finish off my sixth fight on a winning note and then compete for Asia title in front of my home crowd”.
