Fijian boxer Sebastian Singh says the referee’s call to stop his fight against New Zealand’s Bowyn Morgan last night in Christchurch was too early.

Singh went down to Morgan by a technical knock-out in the third- round after Morgan threw relentless combination punches at Singh, allowing the referee to stop the fight.

Singh “The Sniper” expressed his frustration saying the fight should have continued.

“Honestly thinking it’s a premature stoppage because I recover well pretty well and I was alright and getting hit and punched is normal in professional boxing is normal and I think they stop the fight too early and I know I won three rounds easy and I land bigger shots and I just learn from this and continue.”

Meanwhile, Morgan says he was happy to win another belt in a year.

“Yeah its good man. Happy to get another title and it’s my third win this year and I’m excited about it.”

Singh has won 11 in 15 bouts and a draw, with a knockout rate of over 40 per cent.

Morgan has a record of 19 wins and a loss.
