Young, upcoming boxer, Sebastian Singh says fighters in the country need to box against local sluggers before challenging those from abroad.
The youngster is the son of renowned boxing trainer, Gyan Singh and has an impressive record of five professional fights with four wins; two coming by way of knockout.
Singh says local fighters have had a poor run of performances in the international ring in recent times and is eager to see more programs staged for local boxers before they participate overseas.
“There’s not much difference between us and overseas boxers. It’s just that they get more fights. They fight more constantly, they train daily, it’s because they get fights. Over here, we just have fights once a year so how do you expect a boxer not to go to school, not to work and to continue training for nothing.”
Singh will feature in the first local program of the year for the Westwood Boxing Promotions at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on September 26th.
