FIJI'S Abhay Chand is aiming to turn the tables against Afakasi Pele Faumuina when they clash in the Wild West Boxing Promotions program at Prince Charles Park tonight.

Chand lost to Faumuina twice before on points.

However the Navosa boxer believes he is fitter this time round.

Chand said he would punish his opponent.

He said the important task was to win in front of his home crowd.

"I can't wait to jump in the ring and do what I do best and that is to punish my opponent," Chand said.

"I'm injury free and fully fit to rumble in the ring. The important task is to win in front of my home crowd. I have also been prepared mentally by my trainer Farmaan Ali."

"I'm focused on the task ahead. There is no other way other than to go out there and display the best fight of the year.

"I would like to thank my sponsors M Recht Accessories for their continued support and All Trade Spares of Lautoka for the training equipment provided to my trainer. Without the sponsors support our preparations would not have been successful."

Trainer Ali said Chand would come out firing from the opening bell.

"We have practised our game plan many times at training and come fight time, Afakasi will run into some stormy waters," Ali said.

"The training we utilised was enjoyable and Abhay's body responded positively."
