This was confirmed on Thursday by South Pacific Boxing Promotions director Mohammed Shameem.

“Peepueh is 29 years of age and has 17 bouts under his belt,” he said from Canada.

Shameem said the Thai boxer has won 13 fights with 10 by knockouts.

“Peepueh made his pro debut in April 2010 and should a good match for Naliva.”

The promotion was officially launched by the Boxing Commission of Fiji in Suva yesterday.

The programme has the vacant Fiji cruiserweight title at stake with Filimoni Naliva Junior taking on hard hitting Alivereti Koiyaca.
