A lot will be at stake for Junior ‘The Razor’ Farzan Ali when he faces Sebastian ‘Sniper’ Singh in their 10-round fight in Prince Charles Park, Nadi tonight.

The country’s welterweight champion needs to come out with something extra special if he is to resurrect his boxing career.

A loss to Singh could mean a sad end to his colourful career.

A journey that started in the bantamweight division where he beat the likes of Mohammed Paiyal, Waisale Ratu, Etuate Kofi, Binnu Singh, Saimoni Ratu, Aisea Naiti and current super middleweight champion Opeti Tagi.

Realistically, things don’t look good for ‘The Razor.’

In his last fight on May 21, last year, Farzan disappointedly threw in the towel in the third round against Auckland based- Leki Maka.

Many fans went home disappointed that night at how he had lost interest and virtually gave-up against the Tongan.

It was fight where he had lost his killer instinct by his reluctance to throw a punch and was always on the defensive.

Farzan cannot afford to do that against Singh, who is going to rip him with his powerful body punches, which could bring an early end to this much-awaited fight.

The onus is now on him to lift his game if he wants to continue from where his late brother Joy Ali has left off.

This is Farzan’s biggest test and he is in a ‘now or never’ situation.

For many fans they are hoping to see the return of Farzan’s ‘never say die’ attitude.

For that to happen- only time will tell.
