Australian boxer Humzah ‘Raging Bull’ Khalid warned Sebastian ‘Sniper’ Singh to bring his A-game to the ring on Saturday.

This will be the 20-year-old first international fight outside Australia as he faces  Singh for the vacant International Boxing Organisation Oceania-Orient super-middleweight title under the Kiran Boxing Promotions banner at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

Khalid said he wants to remain undefeated after five fights since his professional debut in April, last year.

“I’m In Fiji to showcase my skills. I have been training very well for this fight and I thank the promoter for making it happen,” he said upon arrival yesterday.

“We will be ready and hope for a victory. Training camp, conditioning and sparring have run smoothly and according to plan.

“This is my first time to fight out of my hometown and it is a privilege to fight in Fiji and there are real warriors in Fiji.

“Undefeated so far and hope it stays that way. It is pretty dry in Australia and will try to do some training and to acclimatise to the weather before Saturday.”

He added that if he beat Singh he will fight again in the country.

“I will say let us fight again here. Good luck and all the best and bring your A-game to the fight,” he said.

A devoted Muslim, Khalid was born in Australia, his dad is from Iraq and mother is from Italy.

Fighting local boys is nothing new to him since he has defeated Krishna Mudaliar in April with a TKO in Hurstville.

He also beat Lautoka’s Franco Frazer on August 23 in Bankstown.

He has also defeated Sunun Sangpet, Aphichat Koedchatturat and Zac Cotton.
