Boxing revival

Salaseini Vosamana
Monday, March 17, 2014

TWO former well-known boxers are working together to revive boxing on Vanua Levu.

And as part of this revival effort from Net Ledua and Buli Raiwalui, they have planned for an amateur boxing competition to be held next week where 12 boxers from the Waivure Boxing Club in Bua will take on 12 boxers from Labasa.

Ledua, the Vanua Levu Amateur Boxing Association chairman, said the competition would be an opportunity to train young boxers to become professional in the sport.

"This competition is also a build-up to a major boxing competition scheduled to take place here in July," he said.

"This will be professional boxing.

"The interest for boxing is here in the North and we just have to strengthen and revive it.

"We need to promote the sport because there are a lot of potential boxers here in the North."

Ledua said boxing was just like any other normal sport that needed to be developed further because it was a way of earning income for those that participated in it.
