Vijender Singh may be scheduled to fight for the biggest tittle of his professional career so far, but he seems to be confident of maintaining his unbeaten record.

The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist (10-0, 7 KOs) is scheduled to trade punches with Britain’s Lee Markham (17-4, 7 KOs) for the vacant Commonwealth super middleweight title at York Hall, London, on July 13.

And although the local fighter promises to be a decent fight for Vijender, he has promised to make the fight look easy.

“I will beat him easily. I can make that fight look easy,” the Indian star told IFL TV before revealing he has watched a bit of Markham on YouTube.

Asked about how he feels his professional career has gone so far, he said: “So far, so good. I’m happy, I [have] won two titles (WBO Oriental and Asia/Pacific) … I’ll be fighting for the third now. So, it’s been good.”

Vijender, 32, who is also a World Championship bronze medallist, channeled his inner boxing fan by saying he wants to see heavyweights Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua squaring off against each other.

“I like Tyson Fury… I want to see him fight Anthony Joshua.”
