Welterweight Ronald Naidu is preparing well for the big­gest fight of his career when he takes on Australia’s Brent ‘Sugar’ Dames at Prince Charles Park, Nadi on Saturday.

The 10-round fight is for the vacant World Boxing Foundation (WBF) Australasian welterweight title.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday the 27-year-old Korovuto slug­ger said the outcome of this fight would determine on whether he continues on or not.

“It will be a tough fight but I’m ready to battle,” he said.

Naidu has a remarkable amateur boxing record, winning 22 of his 23 fights while as a professional he has won 7 fights, 2 losses and 3 draws.

“I took up amateur boxing when I was 16-years-old and never looked back.”

Naidu said he always wanted to become a champion and being provided with the opportunity of a title fight, is a dream come true.

“I’ve been training for almost a month for this fight.”

Promoter Ben Krishna said he is confident that Naidu would do wonders in the ring on Saturday night.

The promotion starts at 5.30pm.
