Professional boxing is still in its infant stages in India. But, being the second most populated country in the world with almost 1,4 billion people, India still has several hundred registered professional boxers.

 
 

The biggest star among pro boxers in India is Vijender Singh, who won bronze at the 2008 Olympic Games and has transcended the sport as a TV personality, model and actor.

But, in the much larger second tier of talented Indian prize-fighters, 25-year-old Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Super Featherweight Champion Anuj Kumar Singh (6-3-1, 3 KOs) is trying to make a name for himself.

Born in August of 1994 in Allahabad, a city with around five million people, “Baba”, as he is nicknamed, currently resides among more than eighteen million in Mumbai.

A graduate of Wilson College in Mumbai, one of India's oldest colleges, there is much more to Singh than just boxing. But boxing is his passion, and right now its what he wants to reach the top doing.


 
 

Singh turned pro after completing the unpaid ranks with a 50-12 record. Having boxed professionally in Thailand and China, besides India, he traveled to Tanzania for a fight in September of 2018 and knocked out local man Charles Masali (6-6-1) in the first round.

That victory made him an ideal co-challenger when another Tanzanian, Ramadhani Issa Majeshi (5-2, 3 KOs), was scheduled to fight for the UBO International title on October 8, 2019 in his home-town Bagamoyo.

Once again Singh proved too skilled and determined for the local favorite, and stunned the crowd as he won by third round stoppage.

Singh is hoping that in the near future he will be able to defend his UBO title in India, and eventually fight for the UBO World title.
