FIJI Amateur Boxing Association (FABA) is planning to send four boxers to Papua New Guinea for a competition before the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

FABA president Manasa Baravilala said the preparation was also part of the 2019 Pacific Games.

Olympian Winston Hill, Jo Ravudi, Nathan Singh and Jone Koroilagilagi are part of the national training squad.

However, only two boxers will be selected for the games.

"We are looking at sending our boxers to Papua New Guinea next month for a competition between Fiji, PNG and New South Wales," Baravilala said.

"We are also looking at having a training camp in Brisbane before returning to Fiji to join Team Fiji for the games."

The Commonwealth Games will be held from April 4-15 at the Gold Coast.
