Super welterweight boxer Se­bastian ‘The Sniper’ Singh bounced back in style to beat Franco Fraser on unanimous points decision at Prince Charles Park, Nadi on Saturday night.

Singh dominated the early rounds using his height advantage scoring with his jabs and combina­tion of punches while Fraser was trying to close in with his power punches.

But it was Singh‘s superior ringcraft that made the difference in the end.

After the controversial end of his last drawn fight against Rakuro Daunivavana, Singh came back a much classy boxer.

“I had a great pleasure to fight a great warrior like Fraser,” the 24-year-old Suva boxer said.

“I have a lot of respect for him. For the crowd I would like to apol­ogise for what happened here the last time. I ask the crowd for their forgiveness.

“I will take on anyone in my weight division, Jese (Ravudi) can come and get me. I thank my fam­ily, sponsors and fans for their sup­port.

“Rest in peace, Atama Raqili, one of the great boxers in Fiji.”

In his reply Ravudi said he has accepted Singh’s challenge.

“Singh said there is no local box­er who can beat him.

“I’m here but you keep running away. We can do it anytime. Stop fighting about it in the media,” he said.

Meanwhile, another contender Ronald Naidu put on a gutsy per­formance in Sydney, Australia on Saturday night where he lost on points to Kyron Dryden.

The tough Mulomulo boxer stood his ground and won the hearts of the Australian fans with a grand display of courage.

DRUG TEST

Boxing Commission Fiji board director (West) Usman Ali said they have implemented their drug policy on Saturday’s programme.

“After the fights all boxers were tested. Initially we want to know if boxers are taking any form of drugs to enhance themselves.”

Ali was impressed with the fights where only one ended in a techni­cal knockout.

“We are looking to hold more programmes before the end of the year. It is just a matter of the pro­moters to sign up the boxers.

“We have brought in all the titles from Australia. So from now on the local title fights will be staged. “The rankings of the boxers are being finalised and will be released soon,” he added.
