My fight is postponed its on 7 nov in Dublin- Vijender Singh (@boxervijender) October 26, 2015
Vijender made an immediate impact in his professional debut, earlier this month, when he destroyed Sonny Whiting in three rounds at the Manchester Arena. The 2008 Olympic Bronze medallist was declared the winner through a technical knockout.
Vijender, who will turn 30 on October 29, will face Nottingham's Gillen over four rounds. Gillen is undefeated till now with a 2-0 record and Vijender would look to change that.
Gillen made his pro debut in May, this year, with a points win over Shaun White. He followed that up in September with a points win over Lewis Van Poetsch.
The fight between Vijender and Gillen also represents a Battle of the Badges, with the Indian being a Deputy Superintendent of Police in Haryana and Gillen a firefighter serving in Nottingham.
