FIJI-based Ghana boxer Joseph Kwadjo arrived into the country on Friday night to prepare for his big fight against New Zealand-based Taito Ratuere.
Kwadjo was on holiday in Australia when Ratuere issued him a challenge.
Yesterday, he told Times Sport he is ready for the fight.
"Yes I accept the challenge and I can't wait to sign the contract," Kwadjo said.
He said he had fallen in love with Fiji despite his several visits to other countries.
"I call myself a Fijian now because I love the people of this country. This fight is a Fijian versus Fijian.
"I can't wait to fight this Fijian who is based in New Zealand and give the boxing fans of Fiji a worthy fight."
Kwadjo added he will resume his training soon after being down with a flu for the past two weeks which has prevented him from training.
Meanwhile, Naidiri Boxing Promotion has shown interest in promoting the fight.
"Naidiri is eager to promote the fight but we are not stopping other promoters who are willing to promote the fight," Boxing Commission of Fiji director Mala Veisamasama said.
"This is going to be a huge fight. It is not exclusive to only one promoter but whoever is interested is welcomed to promote the fight."
The fight is scheduled to be held in late November or early December.
