Maciu Malo
Friday, February 09, 2018

BOXER Robin Richard Hazelman is eager to prepare a special meal for Nadroga-based Luke Namadila when they meet in the Westwood Boxing Promotion on February 16.

The Westin Resort chef has the passion for boxing and started boxing last year and is keen to stamp his mark in the ring.

He lost to Malakai Marama in his debut fight but bounced back to knock out Matthew Michael in his second bout.

The Cakaudrove native is now bracing for his third fight against a tough competitor in Namadila.

Hazelman said he expected a tough fight against his Nadroga-based opponent.

"I expect a lot from Luke to bring out of my comfort zone so I am expecting a tough battle," he said.

"I have been preparing since November and I am very much confident of a win.

"I won't be surprised of a knock-out a win."

He said he wanted to win for his mum and relatives and with the guidance of his coach and former boxer Fatu Tuimanono, Hazelman was optimistic of his chances.

The Lautoka-based boxer said he wanted to kick-start his new season with a win and would do his utmost best to prove his worth.

The much anticipated boxing match will be held at Novotel Hotel.

Meanwhile, the main bout for this program will see Fiji's Sebastian Singh battle against Thailand's Jomyuth Sor Narongchal.
