MUMBAI: Vijender Singh is on the verge of creating a historic landmark in his boxing career as he makes his debut in professional boxing at the Manchester Area. And Multi Screen Media (MSM) Network?s sports channel Sony Six has bagged the exclusive broadcasting rights to the event.

 

The channel will be airing the fight live on Saturday, 10 October at 10:20 pm (IST). The event begins at 9.30 pm with the main fight at 10:20 pm.

 

India's first Olympic and World Championships-medallist, Singh, will take on England's Sonny Whiting, who is three-bouts old and has a 2-1 overall record so far in the middleweight division. The fight, which features in the prime time viewing belt for Indian audiences will feature four rounds of three minutes each.

 

Ahead of his fight, the 29-year-old Singh has set up base in Manchester to train under renowned coach Lee Beard and has been training alongside stable mates Jack Catterall, Adrian Gonzalez and Jimmy Kelly. Singh has made essential changes to adapt his game against the 27-year old English boxer, who already has one knockout win to his credit so far.

 

Sony Six?s association with boxing was highlighted with the broadcast of the ?Fight of the Century? featuring Mayweather against Pacquiao in May 2015. Following that, the channel focused on bringing premium and marquee combat sports content to Indian viewers including showcasing the high profile fight of Floyd Mayweather Jr Vs Andre Berto in September this year. This will be the channel's third initiative in bringing one of the most headlined boxing fights live to Indian viewers in 2015.

 

Sony Six and Kix business head Prasana Krishnan said, ?We are proud to showcase the fight that marks Vijender Singh's foray into the professional boxing circuit. Vijender Singh is a National icon and an Olympian who has made India proud with his accomplishments. We are pleased to play our role as broadcasters of his pro debut fight to his fans.?

 

Singh added, ?I am really happy that my professional debut fight in Manchester will be telecast live on Sony Six in India. Now all my friends, fans and coaches in India, who have been asking me about the telecast of the fight can watch me live in action. I am confident that with the reach of Sony Six, everyone in India will be able to watch my pro debut at Manchester Arena.?
