‘He is going to get knocked-out’

Fijian boxer Nathan Singh has only two things on his mind. First and foremost is knocking ni-Vanuatu boxer Masing Warawara out on Saturday, June 10 at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva and second is “shutting a lot of people’s mouths”.

“I have prepared well. It’s just a few days away and I’m really looking forward to shutting a lot of people’s mouths,” said 24-year-old Singh.

“He is going to get knocked-out come June 10.

“I have prepared so well. Everything is on point, and I will be fit for the eight rounds.

“I’m coming to win just like every other fighter. Warawara is a good boxer as well. We both have good amateur backgrounds and all I can say is it’s going to be a good fight.

“I’ve done the hard yards and I am mentally and physically ready. I can’t wait to put up an awesome show.”

Tuwai Boxing Promotions tried to look for local fighters to fight Singh, who has been christened ‘Prince of Fiji’ but the extremely high purse resulted in the boxing promoter turning overseas.

Most local promoters ceiling is $10,000, so Masing Warawara agreeing to the amount meant the fight was on.

Apart from the Singh-Warawara faceoff, boxing fans are also looking forward to Winston Hill going up against Jese Ravudi in the main bout.
