Top Australian super middleweight boxer Renold Quinlan received a major boost this week.

His trainer Lepani Wilson revealed to SUNsports that the renowned Tharawal Aborginial Medical Service had come forward to sponsor him.

“This is something big for Renold,” Wilson said from Sydney yesterday.

“We are grateful to Darryl Wright, the chief executive officer of Tharawal Aboriginal Medical Service for coming forward to help us.”

Renold’s next fight is set for May 22 in Melbourne as moves are under way for him to fight in the middleweight division.

“They are trying to get a top contender to fight him because a win will pave the road for him to fight for the World Boxing Association interim middleweight title on June 27.”

Quinlan, whose mum is from Viwa, Bau in Tailevu, was in Fiji last month to visit relatives in Nepani. His mum’s dad, Sailosi Vatubua, represented Fiji in amateur boxing and won the gold medal at the 1966 South Pacific Games in Noumea.
