Former Indian amateur star Vijender Singh (4-0, 4) continued his perfect professional career earlier today as he easily saw off the very limited and wild Alexander Horvath (5-2-1, 1), from Hungary.
A fleshy looking Singh took control of the bout early and knocked out the gum shield of Horvath, twice, inside the opening round. From then on Singh never seemed to look in any trouble with Singh quickly finding a home for his accurate straight right hand. Sadly for fans expecting a spectacle it seemed those right hands left Horvath looking overly cautious and moving a lot, that movement quickly left him looking tired and off balance.
Singh seemed happy to take his time and slowly pecked away at Horvath during a very uninteresting second round. Thankfully in round 3 it seemed even Singh had gotten bored by the slow tempo and he went out and landed several nasty right hands on the Hungarian who was dropped and took a 10 count, whilst seemingly holding his arm in discomfort.
Whilst Singh maintains his unbeaten record this performance will do little to excite fights who may not have seen Singh before. In fact the way Singh fought, which was overly patient, may end up turning fans off him, especially given the dire ability of Horvath who looked out of his depth from the opening moments. Not only was Singh too patient but it also seems like he was carrying too much weight, something that will need to change if he's to face a better calibre of opponent in the near future
