PokerBaazi.com, one of India’s leading Poker applications, has been roped in as an associate sponsor for the IOS Boxing Promotions Event - Battle on Ship 2021 in Goa.
The event that will see Olympic medalist Vijender Singh taking on Russian super-middleweight boxer Artysh Lopsan on the rooftop of Majestic Pride Ship docked in Goa on March 19 has generated quite some buzz among all Boxing fans. Even though Lopsan has already fought three bouts in 2020, making his return to the ring after a year on the sideline.
Since turning professional, Singh has an unbeaten 12-0 winning streak in the ring and that led PokerBaazi.com to back the event. Navkiran Singh, Founder & CEO, Baazi Games, stated that there is a lot of similarities in Poker and Boxing as both involves immense strategy and talent.
"We are glad to offer our support to the Battle on Ship 2021 event as their Associate Sponsors. At PokerBaazi.com, it is our chief endeavour to promote poker as a game of skill and help our users display their proficiency and aptitude in the game. Just like Poker, boxing as a sport involves immense strategy and talent.
“This partnership is a testament to our commitment towards promoting competition and skill amongst professional players as well as passionate gaming fans. We look forward to supporting Vijender Singh and wish them the best. We are extremely excited about this collaboration and will continue to associate with similar platforms in future as well", says Navkiran Singh, Founder & CEO, Baazi Games.
The Online skill-based gaming platform will also offer 4 lucky winners on PokerBaazi.com a chance to win VIP tickets to the event that will be broadcasted on Sony Network the next day as an exclusive feature on TV.
"At IOS Sports & Entertainment, we are privileged to have the opportunity to work and associate with one of the best brands in the online gaming space whose mission is in sync with that of ours.
