Fight boost for Singh

SEBASTIAN Singh received a shot in the arm ahead of his match against Anwar Ali this Saturday.

The two boxers meet in a 6x3 supporting bout in the Naidiri Boxing Promotions event at Nadi's Prince Charles Park.

Grants Betting Ltd director Peter McCoy and operations manager Vijen Sundar backed Singh for the fight.

Singh said the sponsorship really helped him prepare for the fight and most of the money went towards buying food for him.

"When it comes to fitness, diet is very important and a proper diet will cost you a lot of money," he said.

"So thanks to the money from my sponsors, I was able to buy the things necessary for a good diet plan.

"Also I would like to thank my other sponsors Friends Bar, Henry's Pawn Shop and Majesty Consultants for their support."

Singh said his father; Gyan had an eight week training camp for him and also roped in former South Pacific Games gold medallist Osea Nakanacagi from Labasa to spar with him.
