Internet Desk: After beating his Chinese opponent in a thrilling encounter at ‘Battleground Asia’, star Indian boxer Vijender Singh today requested for peace at the Indo-China border.

Using his height and greater reach to good effect, Vijender most of the time had the better of exchanges with his straight ones and hooks landing flush on Zulpikar, whose blows didn’t have the desired effect.

The Chinese southpaw had his guard up most of the times and with a crouched stance, was relying mostly on the uppercuts.

“I want to give back this belt to Zulpikar. I hope for peace in the border and the message is about peace. That is most important,” Vijender, an Olympic bronze medallist, said after his bout.

For weeks, India and China have been involved in a stand-off along part of their shared border.

It was the 32-year-old’s ninth successive win in his professional career.

While Vijender had commented that “Chinese products don’t last long” prior to his bout, Zulpikar’s spirited show left him surprised.

“I was under the impression that the Chinese would not last long, but he has left me surprised with the way he fought,” Vijender said.
