Guangzhou: World number one boxer Vijender Singh, who braved a dislocated thumb to clinch a gold medal at the Asian Games, will be India’s flagbearer at the closing ceremony of the mega-event in Guangzhou Saturday.
Olympic and World Championships bronze-medallist Vijender defeated two-time world champion Abbos Atoev in the middleweight (75kg) finals to fetch a gold.
The 25-year-old has a plaster on his injured hand right now but national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu said he would still have no trouble lifting the flag at the ceremony this evening.
