The World Championship’s bronze medal winning boxer, Vijender, returned home to a tumultuous welcome at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here in the wee hours on Monday.

Amid a throng of fans and an array of media persons, Vijender arrived flaunting his bronze medal which he won in Milan last week.

“We have just started getting back medals. The day is not far when we will come back with Gold,” Vijender said.

The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist hoped with the Commonwealth Games coming up next year, the Indian boxers will come up with better performances.

“You know they say ‘yeh dil maange more’ (this heart wants more). It’s hard to be satisfied. I’m not satisfied with this. The commonwealth Games is coming up and we will do even better,” he said.
