The famed British boxer Amir Khan has said that Indian star boxer Vijender Singh is scared of him that is why he is not accepting his offer to fight.

Amir will now take on India’s Neeraj Gupta in a WBC Pearl World Championship bout in Jeddah on July 12.

Khan, the British boxer of Pakistan origin, has expressed desire to lock horns with Olympic bronze medallist Vijender a number of times but the bout has not materialised as yet.

Keen to fight an Indian, the 32-year-old two-time World Champion has agreed to switch category to clash with Goyat.

“I have always expressed my desire and tried to fight against Vijender but I think he is scared of me,” Amir said during the announcement of his bout, named ‘The Shinning Jewel’ against Goyat at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

It was time an Indian boxer fight against a world champion and I am glad that Goyat has accepted the offer. What Vijender couldn’t do, Goyat will be doing,” Khan, who will move to welterweight category from his preferred super welterweight division.
