Undefeated in his 10-bout pro career so far, the Vijender Singh was originally scheduled to have his first fight on US soil in April in Los Angeles but an injury sustained during a sparring session delayed it. Now he will face Mike Snider.
Vijender Singh, who is contesting Lok Sabha elections from south Delhi constituency as a Congress candidate termed his rivals - BJP's old-timer Ramesh Bidhuri as 'not a good person' and AAP's Raghav Chadha a 'bachcha'.
