OVALAU boxer Junior Maku is eager to make his much awaited return to the ring next March.
The Jittu-based boxer will fight Nawaka lad Junior Naivogo in the super middleweight at the upcoming Naidiri Boxing Promotions program in Nadi.
The winner of the fight will contest for the vacant Boxing Commission of Fiji super-middle weight title.
And training under former Golden Boy Sakaraia Ve, Maku who has not fought for the past two years said he was pleased to be given another chance to step into the ring.
"I am really happy to be given an opportunity to fight again."
"It has been a long break for me and I am looking forward to getting back into the ring," he said.
Maku said he was wary of the young and energetic Naivogo who beat Nereo Cakautini.
"This will be the first time for me to fight Naivogo, I know that he got that potential and he has proven his worth by beating Cakautini (Nereo) who is a very experienced boxer.
"So that means I really need to be at my best if I want to beat him," he said.
Maku added he wanted to get his boxing career back on track.
"Of course I will want to win this fight and move on in the future. My aim is to fight for a title and if I win this then it is an eye-opener for more good fights."
Yesterday, the duo signed their contract at the Boxing Commission of Fiji office in Suva.
Naidiri boxing promoter Mohammed Ali said the fight would be an exciting one as Naivogo had proven to be one of the upcoming fighters.
