Boxing woe

NATHAN Singh will not compete for Fiji in the 2017 Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu because he does not meet the age requirement for the amateur boxing competition.

This was confirmed by the Fiji amateur boxing assistant coach Oscar Nanovu.

"He is not going because he is underage and the competition is for elite boxers. Zoheb Ali, who replaced Singh, has also been dropped since he does not have a passport," he said.

"No one will represent Fiji in the 56 kilogram division.

"Nathan has a very good future in boxing and he will be an asset for Fiji."

Nanovu said other boxers such as Nemani Rokobuli, Eroni Ligaloa, Josefa Ravudi, Jone Koroilagilagi, Pauliasi Ratu, and Winston Hill had been training well.

"Preparations are on track for the boxers. We are waiting for the release soon of a few of the boxers like Rokobuli and Ligaloa.

"Nemani will compete in the super heavyweight division while Eroni will fight in the heavyweight division."

The games will be held from December 4-15.
