MUMBAI: In what can be termed as a tremendous gesture, Vijender Singh has offered to return his title to Chinese Zulpikar Maimaitali in lieu of peace at the Indo-China border.
Straight after winning the bout, a double champion in pro boxing, urged both countries to maintain peace at the border.
Vijender’s remark came in the backdrop of the tussle between India and China.
