Fiji heavyweight boxer James Singh says his participation in this weekend’s Bluewater Boxing promotion might be his last local one.

He adds that he has heard the call to go a step further on the international stage and will not back down from the challenge.

“This will be my last local fight and we will turn our attention to the International Arena because I have been seeing on the media that people want me to fight International opponents and we will bring it home, we’re not going there, we’ll fight here!”
