Mulomulo Boxing Club’s Ronald Naidu has predicted a knockout win over Rakuro Daunivanana in tonight’s main bout of Kiran’s Boxing Promotions at the Tilak High School hall in Lautoka.

The return clash is expected to be a fierce encounter after their earlier clash on November 27, last year ended in a draw.

“It will be a good fight, last year our fight ended in a draw but this time I’m going for a knockout,” said the 26-year-old slugger who tipped the scale at 66.2kg.

“I have been training for three weeks now. My opponent has good ringcraft and he uses the full width of the ring. He really put me off track the last time but that is going to change tomorrow.”

Naidu has won seven of his 11 professional bouts since making his debut in September 2011. In his last fight he knocked out former national amateur boxing star Simeli Cagica in the second round at Subrail Park in Labasa.

Naidu thanked his sponsors Mana Flyer and M Recht Accessories for backing him up.

Daunivanana weight in at 70.1 kg has a win and a draw from his three professional fights and is confident of a win. In his last fight he stopped Charlie Sesefo in the first round.

Daunivanana said he has been training well for this fight and is ready to take on Naidu.

Match maker Sanjay Singh thanked BCF for sanctioning the programme in a bid to improve the sports.

“We urge boxing fans to come out in numbers,” Singh added.
