Sanjeev Singh Sahota aims to make it four in a row for his boxing career

Published: 8 Oct 2016

Unbeaten in three, Sahota takes on Fonz Alexander in Harrow this evening.

Sanjeev Singh Sahota hopes to make a name for himself as the first Punjabi boxer.

He aims to make a positive change in the community and would like to be a role model to young British Asians.

Sahota said on Twitter: "I'm no #SinghIsKing but I am #SinghInTheRing chasing a dream!"

Originally from Essex, Sahota moved to Spain with his family, where he took a keen interest in boxing.

"I'm no #SinghIsKing but I am #SinghInTheRing chasing a dream!"

Earlier this year Sahota made his debut at the Copper Box in April against Nikita Gultjajevs.

It only took a minute for him to make an impression as Gultjajevs went down twice.

Sahota then took on Silvije Kebet, at York Hall, Bethnal Green.

A victory against Kebet made it two in a row but this time it took a lot longer than a minute, going all the way with a maximum four rounds.

In the middle of July, Vikas Kumar was Sahota’s opponent. The venue for the fight was that of his heritage, India.

The spectators at the Thyagaraj Stadium, New Delhi, saw Sahota make it three in a row, as Kumar recorded his first loss at the hands of the new talent.

The super lightweight returns tonight at the Harrow Leisure Centre to take on Fonz Alexander.

Alexander has had 44 bouts but only recorded four wins. Winning only one in his last six.

Sahota hopes to make it four wins in a row and add another loss to Alexander’s tally in front of a majority of British Asian support.
