Speaking from Manchester, Vijender (75kg) said that he has increased his sparring sessions ahead of his third bout and is focusing on endurance and power.
"How do you respond to such threats? I can only laugh, let him say what he feels like. He has all the freedom to say what he wants. But I talk only in the ring and in a language he will understand quite well," the former Olympic World Championships bronze-medalist said.

Bulgaria's Hyuseinov is the most experienced rival of Vijender's nascent pro career so far, having fought 14 bouts and winning seven. But the 30-year-old Indian is least perturbed.

"If he is experienced, than I am no less. I am an Olympic medalist. Obviously he is more experienced in the Pro Circuit but I am experienced enough not to be affected by it," he said.
