FIJI'S top pound for pound champion boxer, Junior Farzan Ali wants to get back in the ring as soon as possible.
The 31-year-old has given an open challenge to the holders of the Australian Junior Lightweight and Lightweight titles.
He said he wanted to set the ball rolling and if the opponents agree then they can have further talks on the stipulations of the match.
"I have not fought since last year and it's been too long so now I want a fight as soon as possible," Ali said.
"That is why I would like to issue an open challenge to the Australian Junior Lightweight and Lightweight champions," he said.
"I am ready to fight them and if they want, they can select the venue, in either Fiji or Australia and I will fight."
Known locally as The Razor, Ali said he had been training since last year and was also open to a local fight.
The national welterweight champion said the only boxer he wanted to fight in Fiji is Opeti Tagi.
"I have been training regularly and I am fit and I have the backing of my sponsors Henry's Pawn Shop and Wailoaloa Beach Resort.
"I will only fight Opeti Tagi in Fiji and if a promoter were to come and promote our fight, it would be much appreciated.
"Promoters play a big role and if there are no promoters then no fights will take place so I am urging promoters to come and help boxing get back up on its feet in Fiji."
Ali said he was inspired by Iliesa Delana's gold medal win at the Paralympic Games in London and he urges stakeholders in boxing in Fiji to breed future stars of the nation.
"If an amputee can win gold then anyone can. He (Delana) has done the nation proud and I urge boxing stakeholders to help grow the sport so we can also produce future stars that can compete in international events," he said.
