Big fight for Singh

YOUNG boxer Sebastian Singh has landed another fight in Australia and it will be the biggest of his career so far.

The 19-year-old will feature in an undercard to the Anthony Mundine versus Gunner Jackson fight next Friday.

He will be up against Frank McDonald who has lost all four of his fights by knockout.

However, Singh said he would not underestimate his opponent and wants to be as best prepared as possible.

"The fight was only confirmed one week ago," he told Times Sport from Australia.

"So me and my father Gyan came to Australia and have been training here since the beginning of this week.

"I am fit, I am focused and I am determined to put on a good show and give Frank a run for his money."

Singh said he would use this fight to show his talent to a bigger audience.

"The fight between Mundine and Jackson is for the WBA light middleweight title.

"It's going to be televised to a bigger audience and I want to show them that I am a good boxer.

"Also I know that since Frank has lost all his fights so far, he is gunning for a win and that will make him a dangerous opponent."

The Uptown Boxing Stable boxer thanked his fans and sponsors in Fiji for their moral support.

"This is my biggest fight to date and I know my fans and sponsors in Fiji are counting on me, so I will make sure I give my best in the ring."
