On fighting against Vijender, Cheka said, “I am ready to give this kid a lesson in boxing. I will come to India. No turning back. No surrender. I have heard a lot about this Indian boxer and there’s a lot of hype around him, I just can’t wait to be the one to put him in his place. I know he trains in Manchester, but it will be a great fun to beat the Indian lad in his own country.”
He also added, “If you see my record, I have a total of 17 knockouts, I have boxed way more rounds than he has, I am sure I will be able to knock him out in the first round itself. I have seen his previous fights, he has fought absolutely nobody so far. The day he will meet me in the ring, he won’t have a reply for anything I throw at him.”
Singh is currently training in Manchester and his trainer Lee Beard said about him that ” Vijender is an extremely quick learner”. Singh also said on the fight that, “Cheka is a highly experienced boxer, he has many bouts under his belt, but none of this demotivates me. I am confident of my win. I feel my stance is becoming better with every training session that I am undergoing. My trainer also feels that my punches are stronger than before and he has also put me under high intensity training.”
