Vijender, who is three fights old in the pro circuit having won all of them via knockouts, will be gunning for either the WBO middleweight or the super-middleweight title. His opponent will be worked out in the next few weeks.

"It is the right time for him to fight for his first title. In fact it is definitely the right time commercially because we think, it would be huge for him to fight in India. Before the June event, he has three fights in the UK. First is on March 12 in Liverpool, then he will fight on April 2 and April 30. After a bit of break, he will be fighting for either the WBO middleweight or the super middleweight title," Vijender's UK-based promoters Queensberry Promotions' Francis Warren said.
"We are going to look at which title is available. It is not about the belt but finding the right opponent for him. We will make the right decision for him. His progress so far has been exceptional. He has adapted very well and works very hard. Initially the plan was to have his India fight in September but June seems perfect and we might come back again in the next couple of months," he added.
