Badou Jack vows to ‘crush’ Vijender Singh if rematch happens

Badou Jack has achieved quite a lot as a professional boxer. He has fought and defeated some of the biggest names including George Groves and Nathan Cleverly to win world titles in super middleweight and light heavyweight divisions, respectively.

But if there are a few things unchecked in the Swede’s wish list, one of it would perhaps be a fight against Indian star Vijender Singh.

For those unaware, Jack had qualified for his maiden Olympics in Beijing 2008 representing Gambia. He also received the privilege to be the flag-bearer in the opening ceremony. His journey, however, was cut short in the first round itself by Singh, who went on to win the bronze medal in the middleweight category.

“It was an incredible experience,” Jack told ozy.com of his experience before adding: “I would crush [Singh] in the pros.”

Jack has a reason to say that – his 22-1-2 record. But, Singh will be no pushover, it seems.

Ever since turning professional in 2015, the 32-year-old has raced to a 10-0 record (seven knockouts), winning the WBO Asia-Pacific and Oriental super middleweight belts in the process.

And now, Singh is scheduled to vie for the Commonwealth title before possibly challenging for a world title at the end of this season or early next year.

So the big question is: could he upset Jack if the fight materializes?
