Farzan ready to fight Tagi again
FIJI's welterweight boxing champion Junior Farzan Ali is ready to take on Opeti Tagi anytime this year.
Tagi issued a challenge after winning his bout against Johnny Singh in last month's Toe to Toe boxing program.
He said he wanted Ali in his New Year's list.
However Ali said the Naitasiri man needed to be at his best if he wanted a rematch.
The Nadi boxer who is now based in Suva defeated Tagi on a split points decision last year at Prince Charles Park.
Ali is rated as the best pound to pound boxer in Fiji, after winning titles from bantamweight to welterweight.
He currently holds the WBF Asia Pacific lightweight champion title.
"I heard Opeti Tagi wants to fight me. I have already beaten him and he still wants to fight me."
"I want to let him know that I am ready to fight him anytime this year," Ali said.
"I just want to remind him that I will be more dangerous this year and I have big plans ahead for me. If he wants to fight me then he has to be ready and be well prepared," he said.
He said he had more boxing experience and is at the peak of his career.
He said he wanted to give Tagi an opportunity for a rematch.
"I do not talk a lot outside the ring, but talk when I am inside the ring."
