Team Fiji boxing head trainer Pauliasi Ratu Snr said the 2017 Pacific Mini Games has been a learning experience for them.

The former middleweight champion said they would need to be working harder for future competitions.

“This has been a good learning experience for us and now we will be going back to do a review,” he said.

“It’s relooking at our results from here and building it up from there.”

The boxing contingent showed a lot of promise in terms of talent after being led by Olympian Winston Hill who fought in the 69kg weight category, but acording to Ratu Snr, they will be working extra hard for future competitions.

However, he was optimistic of his boxers’ capabilities and is confident that they will bounce back in future international competitions.

“We have learned a lot from this and we will be going back, planning and training hard in addressing some of the weak areas that had been identified and build on from there.

“This would include a reshuffle in our training schedules, routines and areas of approach in terms of technique.”

Speaking to SUNsports earlier in the week, Hill highlighted that some of their techniques were better than others.

He goes on to say, “First I will take some time to rest and then work on what I have learned from here.”
