Expect fireworks tonight as super lightweight boxer Sebastian ‘The Sniper’ Singh takes on Rakuro Daunivavana at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

The duo will feature in the main bout of the Quarry 1 Fiji sponsored- Sea Side Boxing Club Charity boxing in conjunction with the Digicel Bula Festival.

Singh tipped the scale at 72.9 kilogrammes and his opponent weighed 68.3 kg during the official weigh-in at the Nadi Civic Centre yesterday.

“It should be tough since Rakuro is young and hungry but we want fans to come out in numbers to support Fijian boxing,” Singh said.

“I really appreciate Rakuro as he talked less but took on the challenge to fight me. The whole programme is exciting not just me as we have young bloods and also Sakaraia Ve, the icon of Fijian boxing will also be there.”

Singh has 12 bouts under his belt with 10 wins, two losses since turning pro in 2013.

When approached Daunivavana said he can’t wait to jump into the ring.

“I am really confident since I’m fit to to take on Sebastian. To the fans this will be a good fight. I will do my best and will go for a win.”

Boxing Commission of Fiji director (West) Usman Ali said: “The eight main bouts results will be going to boxrec.

“The veteran, pricilla and kids’ bouts are to hype up the Bula festival. Also legendary like Sakaraia Ve and Ilatia Vaka are going to take part in exhibition fights which can be an inspiration to upcoming boxers.”
