Yo Yo Honey Singh to bring boxing league to India in October!

India’s current singing sensation plans to bring the mother of all boxing events to India

Super rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh is on to another league, literally. After starting his Global Fighting Championship (GFC), a boxing league in Dubai, the singer has plans to bring the “mother of all boxing events” to India.

Talking about the event which started at the Dubai World Trade Centre Thursday, Honey Singh said: “Film actors, sportsperson, musicians, socialites, royalty and just personal friends…they were all here. I want this to be one of the biggest sporting events from India.”

Speaking for the first time about his interest in boxing, he said: “My friends Shafiq, A Zak D and Prince Aamir, we are all into boxing. We practice mixed martial arts regularly. There are many wrestlers in my mother’s family. So I guess I’ve inherited my love for wrestling from my mother’s side of the family.”

The High heels singer now wants to make boxing an organized sport in India. “Just as I have broken the monopoly of film music as being synonymous with popular music in our country, I want to prove that cricket is not the only glamorous sport.”

The singer, who says he has a bank of 200 songs ready, has big boxing plans for India. “In October I’ll be bringing the GFC to India. We want to take boxing to the level of cricket. But for that, I need to give serious time to this endeavour. Luckily, I have a bank of 200 songs ready. So I don’t have to worry about where my next song is coming from,” he said.

To make boxing a financially viable sport in India, he needs the participation of rich and influential friends. “For the Dubai event, I invited 80 of my personal friends from all over the world. I just had to tell them about the event, and they were there. It’s very important to get friends on board, friends who make a difference,” Honey Singh said.
