FIJI-based Ghanaian boxer Joseph Kwadjo is trying to negotiate another fight in Australia.

The orthodox stance boxer lost via a split points decision to Trent Broadhurst in a light heavyweight contest at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia on July 3.

It was his first fight since 2011.

He has been in Sydney since then continuing with his training.

"I am talking with officials here for a fight," Kwadjo said.

"If I do get a contract then the fight could be as early as August."

He said if he was not able to secure the contract, he would have to return to Fiji.

"I have been in Australia since June and I had come here to try and get some international fights.

"So far, I fought one and am now trying to negotiate another.

"I am thankful to my sponsors Grants Betting, Friends Bar, ACC Quantum Energy, Angel Nite-Club, Metro Fitness and Fiji Road Services for backing me in my plans."

Kwadjo said he enjoyed training in Sydney and he had learnt a lot while there.

"The training here is not bad. It's actually good.

"Here, there are better sparring partners compared to Fiji. In Fiji I found it very hard to find sparring partners.

"Here in Australia, the sparring partners are not afraid. They are willing to spar with me."
