Lautoka super welterweight slugger Franco Fraser has a lot of respect for his opponent Sebastian Singh as they countdown to their 10-round fight at Prince Charles Park, Nadi tomorrow.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday, Fraser said anything can happen in the ring.

“Sebastian is a great boxer and has worked hard to be where he is today,” he said.

“If I’m not careful then I’ll be on the receiving end and for Sebastian if he is careless then he will be on the receiving end as well. I’ve great respect for my opponent and this is the sport of boxing.”

The former national amateur boxing rep said he has been training under 2017 Commonwealth Games welterweight silver medallist Winston Hill and super middleweight boxer Joseph Kwadjo for the past two weeks.

“I’m much fitter now compared to my previous fights and it was great to workout with them as they kept pushing me. I’ve weighed-in at 68.4 kilogrammes.”

Frazer said Hill is going to be in his corner during the fight. In his last fight, Fraser knocked out hard hitting Vanuatu boxer Fred Nasep in the first round in Port Vila.

“We know that Sebastian has the reach advantage but we’ve got a plan on how to handle him.”

Meanwhile, promising Vanuatu welterweight boxer Roy Ser arrived in the country on Wednesday.

He takes on upcoming Rakuro Daunivavana in the main supporting bout. Today’s weigh-in is at Nair’s Dais, Nadi from 3pm to 4pm.
