So far, Vijender is undefeated in his pro career, winning all the ten matches. His last bout was against Ghana’s Ernest Amuzu in Jaipur in 2017, which he won via unanimous decision.

Having signed with US-based Top Rank Promotions, Vijender’s first fight was scheduled to take place in April. However, an injury delayed his debut.

Meanwhile, he took part in the Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket from the South Delhi constituency. However, he polled only 13.56% votes and came a distant third behind the incumbent BJP candidate and the AAP candidate.

Snider is a veteran in the US pro-boxing circuit and can prove to be a tough hurdle for Vijender to cross. He has a 13-5-3 record and competed in February this year. However, he lost that bout to Tommy Hughes in Chicago via TKO in round five.
