ABHAY Chand will defend his Fiji middleweight title against Opeti Tagi in Nadi in May.

This has been confirmed by Boxing Commission of Fiji director Malakai Veisamasama who said the program would be staged at Prince Charles Park on May 3.

He said the program, the first for the year, was expected to be a tough battle between two seasoned boxers.

"The first program is on May 3 and the main fight is between Abhay Chand and Opeti Tagi for Chand's middleweight title," he said. Veisamasama said the program was being promoted by veteran promoter Mohammed Rafiq of Naidiri Boxing Promotions.

"I would like to congratulate the Western Professional Boxing and Wrestling Association, Usman Ali Lale and Mohammed Rafiq for working hard to put together a good program.

"Rafiq is finalising his program and it's going to have some good fights." Veisamasama said the next promotion would be put together by Farman Ali, who was also from Nadi, under the 21st Century Promotions banner.
