India’s boxing sensation Vijender destroyed Dean Gillen inside one round with a phenomenal power-packed performance at the National Stadium in Dublin in his first ever professional fight in Ireland. Singh followed up his pro debut last month, when he smashed Sonny Whiting at the Manchester Arena, with another destructive display, but in less than half the time, as he pummelled Nottingham’s Gillen with big right hands. Gillian went down in the middle of the round, which was ruled a slip by the referee, but Singh went straight on the attack. He didn’t let Gillen rest as he landed punch after punch with Gillen in the corner until Singh detonated a devastating right that dropped him and left him unable to beat the referee’s ten-count at the end of the round.
