Sebastian Singh has only one thing in mind and that is to continue his unbeaten run on Fijian soil. And that means he is confident of beating Fiji welterweight champion Junior ‘The Razor’ Farzan Ali in their 10-round clash at Prince Charles Park, Nadi tomorrow night.

“I don’t believe in the hype that’s going around us I believe in hard work and dedication,” he told SUNsports yesterday.

“I’ve prepared for the fight since Junior Farzan is going to be a threat and that’s why we’ve to push ourselves to the limit. I’ve really trained hard for this fight.”

Singh said Junior doesn’t have anything to lose in the fight since he’s in the twilight of his career.

“For me this is the next step of my career after I beat this guy there will be nobody locally that will say that I hadn’t fight Farzan.

“Like I said from day one my goal is to take the Fijian flag to the next level. The problem is when we have a rising sportsman we always try to drag them down. I represent the nation with pride when I fight around the world. We’re basically gunning for bigger fights come Friday.

“I have in my mind what Junior’s technique would be like, conditioning myself that I would take everything he gives to me. I can say if Junior is not willing to die on Friday night he is not going to win the fight. I swear to God I’m ready to put my life on the line this is a career changing moment. I still respect him and like I said it’s time for a new hero.”
