Boxer Sebastian ‘Sniper’ Singh is anticipating a difficult fight today, despite weighing in at nearly three kilogramMs heavier than his opponent Bowyn Morgan.

A confident-looking Singh waved at a few fans as he weighed in at 72.45kg at Horncastle Arena in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Hometown favourite Morgan weighed in at 69.80 kg, meaning the fight was upgraded to a middleweight contest for the Pro Boxing wel¬terweight title.

The fight, an undercard to former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker vs Alexander Flores, will be televised live on Fiji One at 10:08pm (Fiji time).

“I’m looking forward to a good, clean and difficult fight today. My opponent looks very fit, but I have trained very hard for this fight,” Singh said, speaking from New Zealand.

“I’m here representing my nation and I’m so proud to fight among such big champion boxers.

“I know everyone will be glued to the TV to see what Sebastian is all about and I’m going to go out there and give my 110 per cent.”

The Kiwi boxer boasts a record of 18 wins and one loss to Singh’s 11 wins, two losses and a single draw.

It’s the Suva boxer’s biggest career fight and the odds are stacked against him, despite his stellar record in Fiji.

Morgan is New Zealand’s No.1 welterweight fighter, and will have a screaming crowd at his back against his younger opponent.

The two boxers fight differently too.

The left-handed Singh is a heavy hitter with a low work rate, whereas Morgan like to pummel his opponent throughout the fight.

A win today could define Singh’s career and determine his future on the international boxing stage
