NEW DELHI, Aug 1: Star boxer Vijender Singh�s �Chinese products� remark has provoked his next opponent Zulpikar Maimaitiali to issue a strong retort ahead of their eagerly-awaited bout titled �Battleground Asia�.
Replying to Vijender�s comment that �Chinese products don�t last long�, WBO Oriental Super middleweight champion Maimaitiali said, �I will show Vijender what Chinese are capable of, we have shown India time and again what China is capable of, it�s time that Vijender too learns his lesson.
�I am coming to your home, Vijender, on 5th August and will take back your belt along with mine. I am going to knock you out in the early rounds,� he said ahead of their scheduled bout in Mumbai on Saturday.
�Battleground Asia� fight night will give both the boxers a chance to claim double titles in a winner-takes-all show.
The Chinese No. 1 boxer said he was eyeing the second belt of his professional career.
�I am fully prepared for this fight, this will be a big fight of my career as I am eyeing second belt of my pro career. I don�t think he ever stood a chance in front of me, he thinks I am a kid. I will show what this kid is made of,� said Maimaitiali. � PTI
