Internet Desk: India’s star boxer Vijender Singh defended his WBO Oriental and Asia Pacific Super middleweight title in style against Africa’s star boxer Ernest Amuzu with a unanimous decision by the judges on Saturday. With this victory Vijender has won 10 pro bouts at a stretch.

The 32-year-old Olympic bronze medallist has so far enjoyed a great run in the professional career, winning all his nine fights, and tonight was no different at a jam-packed Sawai Mansingh Stadium as he emerged as the king of ‘Rumble Rajasthan’.

It was very cautious first round from both, and barring a few jabs here and there, both tried to read each other’s styles.

A confident Vijender then turned up with renewed vigour to unleash a flurry of punches on Amuzu. Two powerful jabs on Amuzu’s jawline must have hurt the African, but he retaliated with a hook aiming at Vijender’s head.

It was easy picking for Vijender thereafter as the Amuzu committed technical blunders by rushing to the corners.

With Vijender having the upper hand, a tired Amuzu tried to stage a fightback but the Indian was up to the task, even as the duo exchanged a few punches.

Vijender played a percentage game during the final round when he had already suffered a muscle pull and didn’t attack a lot.

Prior to this bout, Amuzu had 23 wins under his belt including 21 knockouts out of 25 fights.

In other under-card bouts of the day, Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Amandeep Singh defeated Punjab’s Manoj Kumar.
