Indian boxing star Vijender Singh has noted that he might be back in action in the next two to three months.

Vijender revealed the same to PTI and noted that the bout might be outside India considering the on-going COVID-19 restrictions.

"It will be outside India because it is unlikely that restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic will ease by then. From what I gather, in the next two-three months, I will probably be able to fight," Vijender Singh noted.

His last fight happened back in November 2019 when he secured a win over Charles Ademu of Ghana to remain unbeaten in the professional scene. Interestingly, Top Rank Promotions which signed Vijender Singh back in 2018 has already resumed their events.

Top Rank returned to action back on June 9 with an event with no spectators and Vijender feels that it could become the new normal.

"That's the future given the situation. I think that's how professional boxing will be. Unfortunate but that's how it will adapt. First of all, there shouldn't be a rush. Secondly, you just cannot have crowds. I know they add to the atmosphere but safety first. You have to take every precaution to ensure that this doesn't spread," he added.

The 34-year-old currently holds a professional record of 12-0 to his name and would be looking to improve on the same when he makes his return.
