Battle in Labasa

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

BOXING fans in Vanua Levu will be treated to some top-class boxing action in next month's Canada Fiji Southern Boxing Promotion to be held at Subrail Park in Labasa.

The program will feature Fiji Boxing rising star Siliveni Nawai and former South Pacific Games gold medallist Osea Nakanacagi.

The two boxers last met in 2015 with Nawai winning on unanimous points decision and the upcoming fight will be a good opportunity for Nakanacagi to avenge his early loss. And with the backing of his home fans, Nakanacagi will try his best to end Nawai's unbeaten run after having won all his nine previous fights.

Nawai on the other hand will be out to prove his dominance in the North having proven his worth in Viti Levu.

Boxing promoter Simon Naushad said the main bout would be interesting as both boxers had a lot to prove.

He said Nakanacagi would be out to win for his home fans and most importantly to avenge his first loss.

"At the same time, Nawai will be also out to maintain his unbeaten run and to settle the score after his early win," said Naushad.

"It will be a battle between Vanua Levu and Viti Levu and the onus is on the boxers to prove the best during the night."

Naushad said more exciting bouts were being planned for the night and the people of Vanua Levu would be treated to quality bouts.

Big names such as Abhay Chand, Savenaca Naliva, Junior Filimoni Naliva are some of the fights being confirmed for the event.
