Vijender Singh made a smashing professional debut by knocking out Britain's Sonny Whiting in the middleweight category, ruthlessly demolishing the man, who promised to put him through hell at the Manchester Arena. Vijender won the contest with a few seconds left in the third of the four-round bout via Technical Knockout, pushing Whiting literally on to the ropes and smacking him with a combination of jabs and uppercuts before the referee stepped in to stop the contest.

Vijender Singh continued his sensational foray into professional boxing with a second successive knockout triumph, demolishing England's Dean Gillen in the first round itself. The 30-year-old, who had clinched a Technical Knockout against another Englishman Sonny Whiting in his debut bout, was in rampaging form yet again as he finished off Gillen just over two minutes into the contest. Walking in to the beats of a live dhol, Vijender looked supremely confident as he measured up Gillen in the first 20-30 seconds. With a deadly right straight, the former Olympic bronze-medallist had the Brit down on the mat quite early in the bout. (Getty Images)

 Vijender Singh continued his remarkably dominant run in the professional circuit, notching up a third successive knockout triumph by thrashing Bulgaria's Samet Hyuseinov in less than two rounds. Barely 35 seconds into the second round of what was to be his maiden six-round contest, Vijender cornered Hyuseinov with a flurry of combination punches to force the referee into stopping the bout and give the Indian a win via Technical Knockout. The former Olympic and World Championships bronze-medallist thus continues to remain unbeaten since making his debut in October, all three of his wins being knockouts in under three rounds.

Unlike his first three bouts, when his opponents looked in a hurry to wind up bouts as soon as possible, Indian ace boxer Vijender Singh’s Hungarian opponent Alexander Horvath during the Manchester bout appeared a bit relaxed and in a mood to put up fight for some time. However, all his efforts of staying in the ring for comparatively longer time came to naught as the end result was same – Vijender knocked out the Hungarian to register his fourth victory in succession. Alexander, who was dining on viper's blood in build-up to the bout, looked less ‘venomous’ against Vijender, who executed his calculated punches smartly and knocked out his opponent in the third round itself.
