Khan keen to win

Zanzeer Singh
Thursday, May 01, 2014

WAHID Khan is keen to notch a win against Sailasa Moko as his boxing career draws to an end.

The duo will square off in the 8x3 minute main supporting bout at the Naidiri Promotions A Great Night of Boxing program at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on Saturday.

Khan was supposed to fight Johnny The Machine Gun Singh in a rematch, however, Moko had to be brought in as a replacement after Singh suffered an injury at training.

Sponsored by N Reddy Cleaning Services, Khan vowed to avenge his split points decision loss to Singh but will now have to wait for another day.

The 38-year-old hair- dresser has been training for the past two months with middleweight boxer Nereo Cakautini.

Khan said he was ready to get back into the ring after more than 12 months.

"It is unfortunate that Singh pulled out because of injury," he said.

"I was preparing to face him just to avenge the loss. Sailasa is a good boxer and will be a threat. We have fought twice before recording a win each.

"I would like to thank my sponsor Narayan Reddy for his support. It will be all action from the start."

Khan with his experience will hold the upper hand in the bout. He made his debut in 1999 with a draw against Josefa Duba and has fought 34 times.

Khan's record stands at 13 wins, 16 losses and five draws.

He has fought in New Zealand, Australia and Japan.

Moko lost via a knockout to Abhay Chand in his last fight in 2011.
