At last! Junior ‘The Razor’ Farzan Ali finds his winning form

 

Mulomulo Boxing Club middleweight boxer Siliveni Nawai has extended his record to 10 unbeaten fights.

On Saturday night, he stopped homeboy Osea Nakanacagi in the fifth round at Subrail Park, Labasa.

Nawai decked Nakanacagi in the fifth round and the referee moved in to stop the fight.

“It was a good fight as Nakanacagi had come in prepared,” Nawai said.

“I wanted to knock him out early but at the same time I held back thinking that Osea had something planned but it was not to be. This win has motivated me to go up another step in boxing.”

In the main supporting bout Abhay Chand recorded a TKO win over Ulaiasi Qalomai while Ronald Naidu knocked Simeli Cagica in the first round.

The women’s fight between Anaseini Dakua and Visila Kolitapa ended in a draw.

 

‘FOR MY BROTHER’

Fiji welterweight champion Junior ‘The Razor’ Farzan Ali has found his winning rhythm when he stopped Saven Singh in the first round.

Farzan took 27 seconds to throw his winning combination that saw Singh hit the canvas.

“This win is for my late brother Joy Ali,” he told SUNsports.

“I was in tears when I entered the ring because this ground bought many fond memories when we started our boxing careers. Not many people know what we had gone though and when Joy died my journey became a rocky one.

“This win is for my late brother and everything I’ve done in boxing is because of him. I also dedicate this win to all boxing fans in the North.”

 

QUICK ACTION

Quick action by police officers helped defuse a brawl during the boxing programme. A heated fight between Tevita Sete and Tomu Gaunavou turned ugly which saw their supporters jumping into the ring.

Ring manager Mostafa Khattab said boxers need to control their temper while in the ring.

“It is unacceptable, this is a sport, if you cannot control your temper you can never become a sportsman,” he said.

“It is what we tell the boxers before a match, they need to control their anger if they need to be in this boxing business.

“They need to learn the basics of boxing, when the referee says stop boxing, boxers need to stop.

“We need the boxers to become good sportsmanship and we expect them to be hugging each other as good sportsmanship and we know temper can twirl to anybody, unfortunately it happened to these two and they have been disqualified.”

Khattab said the Boxing Commission of Fiji directors would meet to discuss the fate of the two boxers.
