India’s pro boxer Vijender Singh will look to continue his unbeaten run when he squares off against Alexander Horvath of Hungary in his fourth career bout scheduled to be hosted by Echo Arena Liverpool on March 12. The bout will be an undercard of the WBO World Lightweight Title between Terry Flanagan and Derry Mathews.

Singh, 30, has had a nascent start to his career as a pro boxer, having clinched a third round knockout over Sonny Whiting in his debut, before annihilating Dean Gillen via first round technical knockout. He, then, followed it up with a dominating second round thrashing of Samet Hyuseinov in his third encounter in the ring.

With an impressive 5-1-1 record in his career so far, the 20-year-old Horvath promises to be a stern test for Singh – who tasted colossal success as an amateur that included a podium finish at the Olympics, World Championships, Asian Games, and Commonwealth Games – before deciding to don the gloves of a professional pugilist.

This fight comes ahead of Singh’s scheduled homecoming in June, where the 30-year-old middleweight boxer will lock horns for his first belt, the WBO Asia title.
