FORMER South Pacific gold medallist, Osea Nakanacagi is keen to prove his worth in front of his home fans when he fights the unbeaten Siliveni Nawai next month.

They meet in the main bout of the Canada Fiji Southern Boxing Promotion scheduled at Labasa's Subrail Park on December 16.

It will be a rematch after their last meeting in 2015 where Nawai won on points.

Nakanacagi said the match would be an opportune time to avenge his early loss and he had been training hard for the fight.

"I will be out to prove to my fans who the real winner of our last fight," said Nakanacagi.

"On game day, I will do my best and show my talents to my fans."

Nakanacagi, who last fought Nawai in 2015, said he left the sport because of the decision given by the judges in their Nadi fight.

Other boxers to fight in the program included Abhay Chand, Ulaiasi Qalomai, Savenaca Naliva, Vitori Natawake, Junior Razor Farzan, Ronald Naidu and Tomu Gaunavou.
