Mulomulo Boxing Club’s Ronald Naidu escaped with a split points win over Rakuro Daunivanana in the main bout of the Kiran Boxing Promotions at Tilak High School hall,  Lautoka last Saturday night.

Daunivanana’s fitness coupled with his ringcraft saw him trouble Naidu at times.

“It was a good fight as I only trained for two weeks,” the Nadi welterweight slugger said.

“Rakuro is a good boxer, the first time I fought him he taught me a few tricks but this time I managed to cut his movements around the ring. Now what I want is to have a title fight and I’ve faith in my promoter that he’s going to hook up one soon.”



Promoter Ben Krishna said he was happy with Naidu’s performance and is now negotiating for a World Boxing Foundation (WBF) title fight. I know he is the number one contender at the moment.”

However, the 21-year-old Daunivanana who hails from Buca village in Cakaudrove said he has accepted the judges decision.



“I trained well and was not expecting it but there is going to be one winner. I still love boxing and will continue to fight. I congratulate Ronald since he was the best fighter of the night.”
