India boxer Vijender Singh will defend his WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental super middleweight titles against Ghana’s Ernest Amuzu in Jaipur at Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium on December 23. The 32-year-old professional boxer from Haryana, who is currently ranked 9th in the World Boxing Organization, will fancy his chances against the African.

Vijender has nine wins under his belt with seven of them being won by KO and two by unanimous decision. He has played 40 rounds in his nine fights. In his last three title fights held in India, Vijender has won all three bouts including a knockout.

Vijender said, “I am really excited on having my 10th fight in India in the Pink City of Jaipur. I am training hard in the ring for the last two months and still have three weeks to go for my next fight, so looking forward to winning the third title fight in a row.”

Vijender defeated China’s No 1 boxer Zulpikar Maimaitiali during his last fight in Mumbai to claim WBO Oriental Super Middleweight title and successfully defended his WBO Asia Pacific title.

This is his first fight in Asia.

Amuzu said “I know Vijender Singh is a good boxer and has been an unbeatable in his pro career so far, but I will give him a tough challenge on December 23 and I am confident that he will lose his both the titles in front of his home crowd. So far Vijender has not faced any tough and experienced opponent like me, I am sure that after facing me in the ring he will realise how tough pro boxing is. I am ready and fully prepared to defeat Vijender Singh in the early 3-4 rounds Knockout win”.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
