More local boxers will fight overseas, says Mick Croucher.

The World Boxing Foundation president supervisor Justin Kennedy hosted a workshop and attended a boxing programme in Nadi over the weekend.

Croucher said the World Boxing Foundation (WBF) wants to help in promoting the sport in Fiji.

“We have contacts around the world and we can bring more title fights to Fiji,” he said.

“Local boxers will have the opportunity to fight in Australia and China.

“We have a programme in China on June 23 and local officials can participate.”

Kennedy confirmed there is another promotion on July 6 at the Fijian Function Center in Liverpool, Australia where four Fijian boxers will compete.

Undefeated Jonasa Kavika to face Willis Pele “The Hitman” Meehan, son of Kali Meehan for the vacant WBF Australasian heavyweight title.

The main supporting bout will see Ty Telford (Australia) take on Ronald Naidu for the vacant WBF Australasian title.

“The fight is two months away and it’s almost sold out,”Kennedy said.
