India boxer Vijender Singh offers to return belt for China peace

Monday, 7 August 2017 :  An Indian boxer who beat a Chinese rival has offered to return the championship belt he won as peace gesture, amid a tense border stand-off.

Vijender Singh, an Olympic medallist, beat Zulpikar Maimaitiali on Saturday, winning the WBO Oriental Super Middleweight belt from him.

But he dedicated his win to the “India-China friendship”, and said he wanted to give the belt back.India and China have been feuding over a disputed border area since June.

The row erupted when India opposed China’s attempt to extend a border road through a plateau known as Doklam in India and Donglang in China.

Mr Singh, 31, has been widely praised in India for his win in the much-anticipated fight in Mumbai.But some appear not to share his message of reconciliation.

“Chinese met a grand defeat in Mumbai and same will happen in Doklam,” a yoga guru and businessman called Baba Ramdev tweeted.
