Even though Vijender is confident, he still recalls the butterflies that he felt going into his first pro fight against Sonny Whiting. “That was the toughest so far,” he said. “There were so many things to prove.” In the ring it wasn’t all that difficult as Vijender won by a TKO.
Talking about Controversies – he was at the centre of a drug-related storm in 2013 – Vijender feels it has only made him stronger. “If these controversies had not happened, I would not have been what I am today,” he said. “They taught me to look beyond the mirror and decide what is right. Akal badam khane se nahi athi, thokar khane se athi hain (Intelligence comes from wounds and not almonds).”
