Veteran Navosa boxer Abhay Chand has challenged new­ly crowned Fijian middle­weight champion Sebastian ‘The Sniper’ Singh to fight him next. Speaking to SUNsports on Satur­day night,

Chand said he’s ready for the big fight.

Singh won after Rakuro Daunivavana retired in the third round claiming that he had in­jured his wrist to the disappoint­ment of the fans at Tilak High School hall on Saturday night.

“I made sure Rakuro throw punch­es in the air as it tires him out,” Singh said.

“Usually people are more cultured to see me going out and having a brawl with my opponents.

“This time the game plan was to box him from the outside, stick to the jab and throw some big shots. “I was looking forward to a brawl, I was looking forward to a good fight a toe-to-toe fight knowing Rakuro is a tough customer.

“I had prepared well as I flew over­seas for training.”

Singh said the fight against Chand would happen soon.

“The promoters have to agree to our terms.

“No matter what anyone says peo­ple know it’s a big fight and Ahbay is not a walk in a park.

“Abhay is a tough customer and is known for his deadly right hand.

“I’ll have to go back to the drawing board and talk with my team as I still have a lot to learn.”
