“Congratulations to @boxervijender on the win. Careful what you wish for kid!,” tweeted Khan, a former Olympic silver-medallist and WBA lightweight world champion. The 30-year-old Vijender clinched his seventh straight win and the Super Middleweight title by outlasting former WBC European champion Kerry Hope in a 10-round contest.

“Mine and Amir’s weight categories are different. So, in case he increases his weight or I decrease mine then we can work it out. We are thinking about it, so let’s see. I hope that when that big fight happens, it happens in India only,” said Vijender. Khan, who is currently in Dubai, recently tried himself in the middleweight by taking on world champion Saul Canelo Alvarez. However, it ended in disaster for him when he was knocked out in the sixth round.
The Pakistan-origin boxer had expressed a desire to take on Vijender in India before the showdown with Alvarez.
