India’s most trusted online poker platform, PokerBaazi has joined hands with IOS Boxing Promotions as the Associate Sponsor of an extravagant boxing event, “Battle On Ship 2021” which will be hosted on March 19 at the Majestic Pride Casino in Goa! RummyBaazi Ambassador and one of the top boxers in the country, Vijender Singh will go up against Russia’s Artysh Lopsan, ending a 15 month long hiatus from the ring.
Since turning pro in 2015, Singh has remained undefeated in 12 consecutive bouts and will be looking to continue his winning streak in the 13th match against the Russian boxer. The live poker scene has seen a resurgence in the last month but people are still locked in their homes playing online poker. Although this is not a poker series, the event is going to attract a lot of people and poker players alike and give them a chance to enjoy the thrill and adrenaline as the two professionals take on each other in the ring!
PokerBaazi will be hosting a ‘Battle on Ship’ freeroll on March 17 at 7 PM to promote this upcoming event. The site will be giving away two VIP packages worth ₹25,000 each to the lucky winners of the freerolls. The package comprises VIP Entry to the event, FnB, 4,000 Casino chips (Play Money), and flight fare up to ₹10,000.
All you have to do is deposit ₹200 or more using the code “BATTLESHIP” to win a ticket to the freeroll. The flight fare and entry are non-refundable and non-transferable. Navkiran Singh, CEO and Founder of Baazi Games said,
