Pokerbaazi.com welcomes its new brand ambassador, Boxing champion Mr. Vijender Singh. The name Vijender Singh does not need an introduction. He is the pride of India and a gem of a boxer. He has not only won several national level gold medals but also proved his proficient boxing skills in the international rings. He has represented India at the prestigious Athens Summer Olympics in 2004 and Commonwealth Games in 2006. He bagged a gold medal at the 2006 Asian Games and brought the first ever Olympic medal to India for Boxing when he won a bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
He has been awarded with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award – India’s highest sporting award and Padmashri- the fourth highest civilian award. His performance in the ring has changed the picture and raised the levels very high for the realm of Indian Boxing.
PokerBaazi.com is the pioneer of celebrity brand ambassadors for the online poker websites. Earlier, Sunny Leone was the brand ambassador of Pokerbaazi.com and now in 2018, one of the most revered personalities of the Indian Sports Industry, Vijender Singh, would be representing PokerBaazi.com at large.
PokerBaazi.com was founded by Navkiran Singh in October, 2014 who is an engineer turned entrepreneur. Since 2014, the journey of PokerBaazi.com has been very impressive and it has rarely faced any depression in its climb of becoming India’s most trusted poker website. At present, PokerBaazi.com has proved itself to the Indian poker industry by their flawless service and utmost efficiency. Also, it is the first online poker website of its kind to introduce a poker tournament of 1 crore guaranteed prize pool by the name of “The MoneyMaker”. Its constant trial of promoting poker in India and eradicating the derogatory mindset of people about poker is very evident from the kind of campaigns, tournaments and promotions that it runs on its website.
Vijender Singh’s association with Pokerbaazi.com is a proof that the constant trial of this website to provide poker with its much deserved stature in the field of sports is not going in vain.
PokerBaazi believes that the game of Boxing requires similar psychological skills as those needed while playing poker and so the team including the CEO is very positive about their decision of making Vijender Singh, the upcoming face for Pokerbaazi.com.
Commenting on the appointment, Navkiran Singh, Founder of PokerBaazi.com said, “It gives me immense pleasure to welcome Vijender Singh on board as the brand ambassador of PokerBaazi.com. As a professional boxer, he has already won tremendous accolades for India in the past. His reputation as a serious sportsperson and champion will help us in promoting poker as a serious sport that only flourishes on sheer skill and talent. We are looking forward for a long term association with Vijender Singh.”
On his current stint, Vijender Singh said, “As a sportsperson, it is always an honour for me to be part of campaigns or associate with brands that endeavour to promote sports in the nation. PokerBaazi is doing a great job of utilizing technology and letting Indians play online a game that they adore. I wish the best to the brand and hope that more Indians join its growing community of online poker players.”
So, Baazigars gear up! You never know when you might find the Boxing Champion competing with you on the poker felt.
