Ghanaian Charles Adamu confident his experience will give him the edge

Unbeaten Indian professional boxer Vijender Singh will take on former Ghanaian Olympian and two-time Commonwealth super middleweight champion Charles Adamu in his next bout in Dubai on November 22.

The fight is part of the #RotundaRumble2 card, featuring top stars such as WBO super lightweight World No. 1 Jack Catterall and WBO bantamweight World No. 4 Thomas Patrick Ward.

In his last fight, 34-year-old Vijender had defeated Mike Snider on his US debut in July.

The WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental super middleweight champion from India holds an 11-0 record, with eight knockouts.

Adamu, 42, is an experienced boxer with a 33-14-0 record, including 26 knockouts.

“After having rigorous training sessions for more than two months, I am fully prepared to end my year on a winning note. For me, this fight will be a build-up to the World title I aim to bag in 2020. I am sure my debut fight in Dubai will be exciting and I am looking forward to an early knockout win,” said Vijender.

Adamu sounded confident as well. “Vijender Singh must know that this fight isn't going to be easy for him…I will put up a tactical masterclass he has never seen before. I have fought more than three times the number of fights he has,” said the Ghanaian.
