NEW DELHI: Indian boxing star Vijender Singh on Wednesday broke into the World Boxing Organisation's (WBO) rankings at 10th after being crowned its Asia Pacific super middleweight champion here last month.

Vijender, who beat former WBC European champion Kerry Hope to win the title in a gruelling 10-round contest, has been unbeaten since he turned professional last year, recording seven straight wins -- six of them knockouts.

The Indian is placed above rising American star Trevor McCumby, who is also undefeated in the circuit with 22 wins, 17 of them knockouts.

"It's just the start for me, one day I want to be the No.1 in the world. That's my dream and I am sure I will achieve it," Vijender, who was India's first Olympic and World Championships medal winner in a trailblazing amateur career, told PTI.

A rung above Vijender is US-based Russian Matt Korobov, who has 26 wins in 27 fights so far.

The top slot in the super middleweight category is held by American Jesse Hart, the reigning North American Boxing Organisation (NABO) champion.

The Indian might face Commonwealth champion Luke Blackledge in his next fight, his promoters had hinted after the triumph title triumph here.

i know indian members will accuse me of showing hate toward vajinder because of his sikh/indian herritage but if they really understand the sport of boxing they would realize that vajinder sigh doesnt even belong in the top 10 world rankings. the official boxing webpage which hosts professional boxers based on record has him ranked at no.54 in the world, vajinder singh is a novice talent who hasnt fought any fighter who is world rated to be justified in the top 10.

What does that even mean? :lol:

By the way, Vijender isn't Sikh, he's a Haryanvi Hindu. I do agree however that his bouts were against nobodies which are still too low to be placed at a 10 ranking. Started off way too late
