Gutsy New Zealand boxer Beau O’Brien has made no prediction but however indicated that he’s ready to rumble against Siliveni Nawai on June 23 at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

The 10-round fight is for the vacant World Boxing Foundation (WBF) Australasian middleweight title.

“I’m training, sparring, doing my road runs and everything is shaping up fine,” O’Brien said.

‘I’m psyched up to take on Fiji’s unbeaten boxer. I have learnt about him on and he should be a fantastic opponent.

“There will be no prediction but I’ll go into the ring and fight him. I’m looking forward to come to Fiji as I have never been to Fiji but have heard a lot about the place.

“I do respect my opponent since he is ranked number one in Fiji and I won’t take this fight lightly.”

O’Brien has fought seven bouts won five fights, a loss and a draw since winning his professional debut over James O’Connor in 2012. The Napier native last fought Shiva Mishra in March where he won on points.
