Navosa slugger Abhay Chand is looking forward to a return fight with Franco Fraser in the Canada Fiji Southern Boxing Promotions at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on June 23.

Chand, 38, last Saturday defeated Jean Louis of Vanuatu on points over six rounds in the Best Boxing Promotions sanctioned event.

The two last fought in 2016 where Chand won by KO in round four at the same venue.

“I am thankful to the promoter for giving me the green light to fight Franco in his programme in June,”Chand said.

“I am really excited and needs to keep fighting. I need an opponent and hopefully a title shot in a not too distant future.”

Chand has a total 41 fights (22 wins, 15 loss and 4 draws) under his belt since his debut against Saliasa Moko in 2000.

Promoter Simon Naushad said, “We have a good programme and should be a hit.”
