Amir Khan vs. Vijender Singh Is A Possibility

Amir Khan vs. Vijender Singh Is A Possibility

Following his victory on Saturday in his native India, Vijender Singh is already eyeing up a potential super-fight with Amir Khan.

The 30-year-old Indian claimed the WBO Asia Pacific champion while improving his record to a perfect 7-0 after out-pointing Kerry Hope, though more importantly propelled him in the WBO world rankings.

Despite sending his faithfuls jubilant, Singh is planning his route ahead, targeting a fight with British-Pakistani and former world champion Amir Khan in the near future - who's coming off a devastating knock-out loss to 'Canelo' as he is mulls over his next move. Singh spoke of his plans post-fight;

"My world ranking will be in the top 15. I will get harder fights now but I am ready. I will work with my coaches and mt team and we will go for it. Mine and Amir's weight categories are different. So, in case he increases his weight or I decrease mine then we can work it out. We are thinking about it, so lets see."

Promoter Frank Warren also weighed in on the fight;

"In the long term, we will keep an eye on Amir Khan as well. That fight over here will be phenomenal, it will be a massive fight. We have tentatively talked to Amir's team, I know they want it, I know Vijender wants it."

The Bolton-native even took to Twitter to congratulate him on his latest win as he threw in a subtle jab.

India and Pakistan are renown for their fierce rivalry especially in the field of cricket, but it could be renewed inside a boxing ring as Singh continues to rise to prominence while Khan remains eager to fight in Asia.
