Australian super lightweight boxer Brent ‘Sugar’ Dames has opted to do all his talking in the ring against Sebastian ‘Sniper’ Singh at the Novotel Suva Lami Bay’s Convention Centre on February 2.

Dames, 27, who is challenging Singh’s World Boxing Foundation Asia Pacific super lightweight title is also a former kick boxing champion..

“This is a good first fight of the year for us,” he said.

“It’s a title fight and also at the same time to take out one of Fiji’s top guys.

“I don’t like predictions, but it’s going to be a good showcase of boxing skills on that Friday night.

“I always prepare as normal, mostly we only get four weeks because we are always the B side but I like fighting as an underdog. I know Sebastian pulled out last time due to some injury and then  fought not long after that, so hoping he stays healthy this time.”

Singh, 23, on the other hand last fought in June, 2017 and has 11 bouts under his belt with nine wins (6 KOs) and two losses since his debut in 2013.

Fighting for the first time in Fiji, Dames hopes to arrive early and acclimatise to the weather conditions.

“So looking forward to experience the local weather, get to the weigh-in and the fight and maybe get up early Saturday morning and go to the beach before heading home. Drink a couple of coconuts and eat some nice fresh fruit,” he added.
