It will be great moment for the family of Junior Far­zan Ali when his 18-year-old son, Mohammed will be appearing with him in the Bula Festival Charity promotion set for July 13.

Farzan takes on Jese Ravudi in the main supporting bout while Mohammed faces Wilson Singh in an exhibi­tion fight at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

The 10-round main bout is between Sebastian Singh and Rakuro Dauvavana. The promotion is under Quarry 1 Fiji sponsored- Sea Side Boxing Club.

“I have been preparing well for this fight and will give Jese a good fight,” Farzan said.

“I have seen him couple of times and he seems to be fit too. But all will be said in the ring. I need to tackle folks like him since age is just a number.”

Ravudi has fought 10 fights winning six, three losses and a draw.

“A lot of people have told me that they want to watch this fight. I thank the promoter and Jese for agreeing to this fight which is for a charitable course. We have to give back to the community as well.”

Farzan said his son Mohammed is looking forward to his fight.

“It has been my dream to follow my father’s footsteps but time will tell. At night when I’m lying down I can see my father’s belts pinned to the wall. I always tell myself that I will one day become a champion like him,” he said.
