Indian boxing star, Vijender Singh remained an unstoppable force, clinching a Technical Knockout over the more experienced Mike Snider on his debut on the US professional circuit here on Saturday.

In what was to be an eight-round super middle-weight contest, the 33 years old from Haryana prevailed in four rounds for his 11th consecutive victory on the circuit.

“It was excellent getting back in the ring after a long time off. It is great to be here in the USA and to get the win. It was really exciting. I am really happy for winning debut in USA.” Vijender said.

The triumph came in the second minute of the fourth round when Vijender cornered Snider with a flurry of straight punches, prompting the referee to stop the bout in the Indian’s favor.

“It took me for about four rounds to get back in the swing of things. I expected it to take two and three rounds, bu it took me four. I felt good.” Said the triumphant boxer.

The 38 year old boxer Snider was flailing his arms without any significance force in his punches for most of the bout. Vijender, on the other hand, was sharp as ever despite fighting his fight bout in more than a year.

The Indian never looked threatened by the local favorite and thwarted his feeble attacks quite easily. Snider came into the fight with a 13-5-3 record.

Vijender would be aiming to compete in two more fights this year after signing up with the Fall of Famer Bob Arum’s Top Rank Promotions.

“Top rank has a bigger plan for me, and whatever they say is next, I am fine with it.’ He said.

Vijender’s trainer Lee Beard, who has been with him ever since he turned pro in 2015 lauded his commitment.
