Vijender knocks Hungarian Alexander Horvarth;Registers fourth successive win

VijenderIndian pro boxer Vijender  remained unbeaten with an easy win over Hungarian Alexander Horvath at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. The Olympic medallist took three rounds to register his fourth successive win of a short professional career.The victory will give the 30-year-old middleweight boxer enough confidence ahead of his India debut in June, in which he will fight for the WBO Asia belt.Today’s match-up was an undercard fight in the WBO World Lightweight title bout featuring the champion Terry Flanagan and Derry Mathews. Fighting from blue corner, Vijender dominated his 20-year-old opponent, who was reportedly drinking snake’s blood to enhance his endurance levels, from the start, despite a series of punches coming from the Hungarian in the first round.But the real difference came when the Indian landed couple of one-twos before the first gong. It was not the cleanest of the bouts but the Indian managed to show his class, in all aspects. The Hungarian somehow managed to survived the second round, despite Vijender landing numerous punches.One a minute into the third round, the referee stopped the contest after a body nudge following a punch from Vijender floored Horvath.
