There, Singh (10-0, 7 KOs) will face Calvin Metcalf (9-1-1, 2 KOs) on the undercard of the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Anthony Crolla fight, streaming live on ESPN+.
Vijender Singh pounds on the heavy bag under the vigilant eyes and guidance of Freddie Roach at the legendary trainer’s Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood. This has been a snapshot of the daily scene at the Vine Street gym over the past two weeks.
The undefeated Indian super middleweight has been honing his skills in two-a-day morning and evening training sessions in preparation for his U.S. boxing debut April 12 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Originally, no opponent was named, although boxrec has as an opponent the American Calvin Metcalf, 24 years old and 9-1-1 record, 2 knockouts, who has remained undefeated in his last 4 fights.
This will not be the first fight for Singh, but it will be his first fight since December 2017, when he defeated Ernest Amuzu.
A 33-year-old Singh is a talented fighter, but there is concern that he is in the back of his career. There is no sense that Top Rank sees Singh as a key fighter to bring the best Indian fans to the professional ranks.
