Fijian Amateur boxer Tomu Gaunavou is preparing for the Westwood Boxing Promotion which will be held in Nadi on September 26 at Prince Charles Park.

Gaunavou has competed in 15 fights, won13 and lost two.

The Nawaqabena Naitasiri lad will fight one of Fijian professional boxer’s favourites Johny Singh.

“This is huge for me and I thank the organisers for letting me fight with one professional boxer.

“This is where I can showcase my talents and boxing in pro for the first time will be my tough challenge,” Gaunavou said.

The 26 year old said it will be challenging for him.

“All of Johnny’s punches are technically very good, he has thrown unorthodox punches but for me it is about getting the job done.

“I would just want to show my boxing ability and I need to concentrate on myself and focus on my strengths as well.

Being the nephew of former Fijian boxers Gabriel Nimacere Gaunavou, Ioane and Manueli Delatabua, Gaunavou wants to continue with the boxing career in his family.

“Boxing is already in the blood it is in my family I will just have to continue with it.

“Starting my boxing career in 2010 it was always my dream to become a professional boxer and by the looks of it I am on the right path now and being at this stage is always my dream.”
