Fight won’t last 12 rounds: VakaceguBy LEONE CABENATABUA    The 12-round welterweight title clash between Junior ‘The Razor’ Farzan Ali and Opeti Tagi is not going to last the distance, says a veteran boxer.  Cruiserweight boxer Sefanaia Vakacegu said yesterday after the controversial ending of their first encounter both boxers are going to go for a knockout to be declared a clear winner.  “I watched their first clash and it was Opeti Tagi’s fight,” the Lau native said.  “Farzan is a close friend of mine but in that fight he was lucky to win it. I did not know what fight the judges had watched that night because it was very clear that Tagi had won the fight.”  Vakacegu said with that at the back of their minds both boxers are going to go in this time trying to come out a clear winner.  “It’s going to be a knockout fight. One wrong move is going to be the end of it all. Opeti has to be very fit and use his skills well while Farzan is going to go for a quick end.”  He also called on the Boxing Commission of Fiji to ensure that ring officials are taken for a refresher course before they officiate in the programme.  “They should appoint a good referee and judges for the main fight. These officials should be taken through a course of the boxing rules and undergo fitness test before they are given the approval to be in-charge. These officials should be fair and should not favour boxers,” Vakacegu added.
