The 23-year-old hits the scale at 63.6kg while Boonraska weighed 62.3kg yesterday.

“We’ve done all the hard work and I can’t wait for Saturday,” Singh said.

“The title should stay in Fiji. The more skilful and fitter fighter will win.

“My opponent got an impressive record including kickboxing but I’m determined to win.

“I am at home and flying my nation’s flag so this fight is just not for me but for all Fijians.

“I think it is about a time we stamp our mark on the world stage.”

Boonraska said he was ready for the fight.

“I trained for one month and I am very ready for this fight.”
