Boxing and MMA are proving to be quite popular with Punjabi communities across the globe. Recently Tal Singh signed a pro contract with David Haye. Inder Singh Bassi signed with Boxing giants MTK Global as well as Dilly Singh confirming his pro return. Now Sukhdeep Singh Chakria has penned a pro contract with North American Boxing promoters United Boxing Promotions (UBP).
Sukhdeep Singh Chakria is an undefeated middleweight prospect with a record of 6 wins with 2 by KO. Singh had a standout amateur career in India. He is now fighting and based in Ajax, Ontario. The Punjabi amateur turned pro just under two years ago and has massed a loyal and dedicated army of fans.
Speaking with World Boxing News Sukhdeep said “I am grateful to be partnering with Tyler Buxton and the United Boxing Promotions family. They have faith in my ability as a fighter and as a person,” explained Chakria.
“I wake up every day with the aspiration to be the best that I can be. And it is very reassuring to have a team that has the exact same perspective for my future.”
Singh last fought in Septemeber and showed his continued growth as a fighter by dominating former WBO Latino Champion David Ramero for a wide unanimous decision victory in front of hundreds of adoring fans.
”Sukhdeep Singh Chakria’s community support is like nothing that the boxing community has seen here in Ontario,” admitted Buxton. “He might be the first boxer to pack the Scotiabank Arena. I’ve known he was special since his debut. He has the skills and style to go along way.”
If Chakria and coach Ryan Grant, have their way, a fight for a major title under the bright lights of a major league venue is just a matter of time. “Ryan works with me every day to sharpen my tool set,” said Chakria.
“Although I am proud of how far I have come, I know that I have a long ways to travel before I can be remotely comfortable with my achievements. I want to be the best, I want to win titles, I know that if I continue to put in the necessary work. Tyler and his team will help me find the championship opportunities that I deserve.”
