Two-time former world champion, Amir, who has been training intensively for his much-anticipated WBC title contest against Mexico's Saul 'Canelo Alvarez want to fight against Vijender soon in India.

Commenting on Amir Khan's challenge, Vijender said, "I accept the challenge of Amir Khan and I am sure this fight will be a big boost to boxing in our country”.

"As we both fight in different weight categories so will have to see whether Amir gains or I have to lose weight. I have started my professional boxing career last year only and have made only 4 appearances in the pro ring,” he added.

"It might take me just one more year when I will be ready to fight against Amir Khan. I am sure this fight will attract international limelight and attention. Currently I am focusing on my next fight scheduled for April 30 against Matiouze Royer at Copper Box Arena," he added.
However, a fight between Vijender and Amir is at least a year or two away as the Indian boxer has just started his pro boxing career last year and has only four bouts under his belt whereas Amir has 34 bouts to his credit.
