After his amateur career led him tal Singh has vowed to become the first Sikh world champion.
After a late start into boxing at age 18, Singh exceeded his early expectations as he triumphed at English level last year, an achievement for a Sikh fighter.
He readily admits that boxing isnt a game in his community, but expects his title success will inspire involvement that is more widespread.
Its massive, Singh told Sky Sports. Not only to myself, but to my family, and to basically the Sikh community, particularly being the very first Singh ever, together with the long hair and beard, to do this.
I was quite stunned to be truthful, to see in this day and age, theres still folks getting the earliest of X,Y and Z.
Ahead of his planned expert debut, Singh was coaching in David Hayes gym in Vauxhall along with Derek Chisora as the heavyweight prepares to face David Price on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Hayes former strength and conditioning coach Ruben Tabares was assisting Singh, who has received aid from rapper Tinie Tempah and magician Dynamo.
It is amazing, said Singh. You have got no choice except to get better and improve, particularly being about the people who Im around, they are all winners and powerful, such as Dynamo and Tinie.
If youve got a buddy circle like this, you can not be a let-down, you have to climb to the event.
Hes not calledWar Chisora for no reason, also at the gym even watching his sparring sessions, hes as volatile as it gets
Though his ambitions dont stop there, because he attempts to be a pioneering champion from the positions, singh expects to target the division.
I need to develop into a multi-weight world champion, thats the best objective. I would like to set the bar so high that Sikh fighters, actually Asians in general, I need them to be inspired.
I have the very best team , and I feel I definitely will achieve it. My life revolves around this and it would be a lifetime goal
