Two-Time Indian Olympian Vikas Krishan Set To Make New York City Debut on Tonight’s Crawford – Khan Undercard at Madison Square Garden


NEW YORK (April 20, 2019) -Two-Time Olympian from India, Vikas Krishan is set to make his 2nd pro outing when he takes on Noah Kidd in a scheduled six-round bout TONIGHT at Madison Square Garden.

The Krishan – Kidd bout can be seen live on ESPN 2 beginning at 6 P.M. ET.

Krishan, who is a police officer in his home district of Bhiwani in Haryana, India, made a successful pro debut when he stopped Steven Andrade in the 1st round of their bout on January 19th in Verona, New York.

Kidd of Jefferson City, Missouri has a respectable pro record of 3-1-1 with two knockouts, with his only loss being to Olympic Gold Medal winner Daniyar Yeleussinov.

The 27 year-old Krishan was an Olympian in 2012 and 2016, and is the only Indian fighter in history to capture gold medals at both the Asian and Commonwealth Games as well as the AIBA Youth Boxing Championships.

In 2012, at the London Olympics, he defeated current IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. via 13-11 decision, only for the decision to be controversially overturned five hours later due to various fouls Krishan committed during the bout.

In the last Olympics, Krishan made it to the quarterfinals. He became the first three-medal winner of the Asian Games as he won a Bronze Medal.

Krishan weighed 154.2 lbs at Friday’s weigh-in, while Kidd was 153.2 lbs.

Krishan is managed by Split-T Management, and is promoted by Top Rank.
