Savenaca, 30, will face Serea, Naitasiri native Opeti Tagi over eight rounds in a light heavyweight contest in the Canada Fiji Southern Boxing Promotions at tprince Charles Park.

“He is an experienced boxer but I train to win,”Savenaca said.

He won eight (5 KOs), a draw and a loss in Samoa against Kiwi, Jordan Tuigamala in 2014.

Filimoni, who turned 25, last week will take on Robert Kustel of Cakaudrove over four rounds.

“I’ve prepared well as my opponent is an experienced boxer,”he said.

 

He made his debut with a win iover Edriel Thein in June last year.
