Upcoming star James ‘The Beast’ Singh aims for a title fight in the heavyweight division in future.

This was after the 24-year-old from the Coral Coast ended Fiji’s champion Petero Qica’s colourful unbeaten run since 2009 with a TKO in round five.

“I told you I’m going to knock him out. If Anthony Joshua can lose, then I can make Qica go down too. People will remember James Singh for a long time. I want a title fight next.”

Qica said: “It was James day today. He is good but I was not fully prepared for this fight and James was fit. But I want a rematch.”
