It is a dream come true for 24-year-old boxer James Singh when he finally gets into the ring with Fijian heavyweight champion Petero Qica at Prince Charles Park, Nadi on June 29.

The Votua, Korolevu native said preparations are coming up well and he’s confident of knocking out Qica.

“Preparations have been going on well for the past six weeks now,” he said.

“I’m definitely going for a win and I’m ready for the eight rounds.

“I’ve been listening to a lot of negative comments made about me that I will just be a walk in the park when I fight Qica. But people need to know that I’m still undefeated in Fiji and I will not lose that record.

“This will also be my first time fighting Qica and everybody is aware of the competitiveness between us.
“I can assure that after the fight he’ll definitely come to me and say that ‘James! You have put on a very good fight’.

“I’m not going leave my fight on the judges because in Fiji the judging is the last thing you would want to know and I’m definitely going for a knock out.

“This fight is the contest for the heavyweight title and I see Qica as an ordinary opponent.”

Singh also highlighted that he’s pleased to have taken up the sport as a profession.

“My interest for boxing came about when I was six years old and growing up in a family that loves boxing was another factor that influenced me to take up the sport.

“I had to take boxing professionally so I can earn a decent living and so we here again fighting one of the best in the country which is a dream come true.”

Meanwhile, tickets for the programme will be out for sale at Lale’s Fried Chicken Restaurant in Nadi from today as well as on match day at the gates.
