India's star professional boxer Vijender Singh is all set to pack a punch when he takes on China's undefeated boxer Zulpikar Maimaitiali for a "double-title fight" on Saturday.

Summary: "He (Zulpikar) is young so he (can) make mistake, he is in rush".

Vijender, who remained unbeaten since his debut in professional boxing, has fought eight bouts last one being against former world number one boxer Francis Cheka from Tanzania, where he defended his title. The concluding fight of "Battleground Asia" by IOS Boxing Promotions will be preceded by seven more fights of which four will be telecasted live from 6.30 pm onwards.

"I don't think he poses any challenge", the Indian boxer said, ahead of the bout against Maimaitiali which will take place in Mumbai on August 5. He has fought eight bouts until now.

The controversial 31-year-old, who is eyeing opportunities in the United Kingdom and U.S. if he manages to overcome 23-year-old Maimaitiali, is taking every opportunity to downplay the threat from his opponent while jabbing away at his Chinese nationality. "He is a strong kid, I can say that".

Speaking about his Chinese opponent, Vijender was quoted by media: "I didn't expect him to fight so well and last the distance".
