Fiji welterweight boxing champion Junior Farzan Ali is desperate for a fight.
Junior told SUNsports yesterday that he is ready to give up his title to fight Abhay Chand for his middleweight title or move down to featherweight and take on Mohammed Shameem.
“I’m a natural featherweight and I moved up to welterweight and beat all the best boxers in that category,” he said.
“I can fight all the best featherweight boxers in one night and knock them out. And if so I’ll move up to middleweight and take on Abhay.” Junior who was the first boxer in the country to pay for his registration fees has called on the Boxing Commission of Fiji that before sanctioning fights, they should also look at the caliber of boxers in the programme.
“I’m now the best boxer in Fiji and I’m not boasting because that is a fact.”
Boxing Commission Fiji director Malakai Veisamasama said they understand Junior’s concern but first they have  to get the first programme underway.
