Team Fiji Vs The Rest

Fiji Amateur Boxing Association secretary Asinate Nanovu confirmed that the Team Fiji versus The Rest boxing programme will be held on Saturday.

The programme will be the final trial to select the team for Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea on July 4-18.

Team Fiji boxing section manager Ajay Amrit said with the limited time they have to select a team.

“We’re not like other sports where they have had a sufficient amount of time to prepare for the Pacific Games,” he said.

“We literally put together a team three weeks ago and the programme on Saturday is basically to gauge our boxers.

“We are looking to build a stable of fighters who we can choose from to represent Fiji in international events.

“The selection is pretty simple, if you are good enough you could have a chance to be in this stable and we want to be fair to everyone.”

Team Fiji will be made up of Vilimoni Drotini, Pauliasi Ratu, Lepani Levatia, Winston Hill, Josefa Ravudi, Cena Ruata, Jone Mau, Jonathan Hill and Viliame Vitukalulu.

The programme will be held at the Carpenters Fitness Centre (formerly the Rabuka Gym). Weigh-in will start from 9am to 11am, with medical at 6pm, followed by the match at 7pm.

Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for schoolchildren.
