The pre-bout headlines claimed that this was going to be the biggest bout of Vijender Singh's pro career. But the 30-year-old overcame Kerry Hope 98-92, 98-92, 100-90 without much fuss to win the WBO Asia Pacific super middleweight belt. With this triumph, Vijender extended his winning record to 7-0.

Never in his previous 6 bouts has the match gone all the way to the 10th round, but Vijender Singh was unperturbed. He made his pro-debut just last year which was a stark difference from Hope who has 12 years in the professional scene but except for when he lost his footing in the second round, Vijender never look flustered.
