New Delhi: India’s professional boxer Vijender Singh will take on Australia’s Kerry Hope at Delhi’s Thyagaraj Stadium on July 16.

The bout originally scheduled for June 11 was postponed due to logistical issues.

The match will be the seventh professional bout for the Haryana pugilist.

Singh has won all his six pro bouts via technical knockouts. He defeated his opponent Sonny Whiting on his debut on October 10 2015.

Singh said he has been excited about his fight in India.
