“Vijender has fought nobody! He’s been over matched” – Kerry Hope

29/06/2016

Kerry Hope is looking to gate crash Vijender Singh’s much anticipated homecoming fight on Saturday 16 July.

Speaking with the Times of India, Hope revealed: "Vijender has fought absolutely nobody so far and he's out of his depth facing me so early in his career. I'm not quite sure what his team were thinking accepting the fight, but I believe he's been over matched.”

The Welsh warrior is now based down under in Brisbane which allows him to contest the vacant WBO Asia Pacific Super-Middleweight title.

"I'm leaving no stone unturned in my preparation. Make no mistake, Vijender Singh is in trouble!” warned the southpaw.

It’s history in the making with the fight being the main attraction for the first professional show in India and Hope believes it’s come too soon for the decorated amateur.

"He knows it and I know it. I saw the fear in his eyes at the press conference. He knows that he's not in my league. He's been fighting trash and still seems like an amateur fighter so I am going to show him what professional boxing is all about,” stated the former European Champion.

Singh is currently riding the wave of six stoppage wins in succession since turning pro but the experienced Hope believes he has what it takes to derail Singh’s rise to the top.

"He's not used to going long rounds and having to dig deep and find a second wind. I'm going to bring the pressure and he's going to wilt. On 16 July there will be 1.25 billion disappointed fans of Vijender Singh.”

We're live on air at 1pm on Saturday 16 July from Delhi for Singh v Hope!
