Matiouze Royer doesn’t look easy: Vijender

None of his four fights so far have gone the distance and Indian boxing star Vijender Singh is not keen on a longer contest either even though he does not expect this weekend’s faceoff with Frenchman Matiouze Royer to be an easy one. Vijender, who has won all his previous four contests via Technical Knockouts in under three rounds, said he respects Royer for his experience of 44 bouts, which includes 14 wins. The two will square off in Stratford’s Copper Arena on Saturday.


“From whatever I have seen of him, he does not look easy. He knows how to fight a tough one. I would say he is good but then I am no less,” the 30-year-old Haryana-lad told from London.


“I will try to finish this fight as soon as possible again. But I think it could be a little longer than the previous ones, which is also good for me. I don’t mind more time in the ring but if I can finish off something early, why not?” he added.
