Vijender Singh, who gave India its first-ever Olympic boxing medal back in 2008, has joined forces with Top Rank after missing all of 2018. He joins countryman Vikas Krishan, who signed on with Bob Arum and co. late last week.
He’ll make his promotional debut in “early 2019.”
Singh (10-0, 7 KO) is a superstar in his home country and was a legit amateur, but has yet to really go anywhere since making his pro debut in 2015. His best win is a 2016 decision over former European champ Kerry Hope and he was last seen shutting out Ghana’s Ernest Amuzu.
Singh’s 33 years old and super middleweight is a scary division at the moment, even moreso with Canelo Alvarez making landfall next month. But who knows? Maybe Singh has one good run left in him.
