Vijender Singh won WBO Oriental Super Middleweight title

On August 5, 2015, Boxer Vijender Singh of India defeated China’s Zulpikar Maimaitiali to win the unified WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight title in Mumbai. This was Vijender Singh’s ninth successive win in his professional career. Vijender dominated the fight, most of the time by using his height and greater reach to good effect. This was the first defeat of Zulpikar’s professional career. Known for his ability to knockout opponents, Zulpikar from China was undefeated in his previous nine professional bouts. He had won eight of those — several of them by knockouts — while one bout was undecided.
