Former Sydney-based boxer Jese Ravudi gets a break when he takes on Malakai Marama in a six round fight on June 29 at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

South Pacific Boxing Promotions promoter Freddy Chand told SUNsports yesterday that Ravudi’s fight would be a super welterweight elimination for the vacant Fijian title.

“This is going to be a cracker,” he said.

“The winner is going to fight for the Fiji super wel­terweight title against the number one contender.”

Ravudi has a record of 7 wins, 3 losses and a draw. The Naitasiri native has beaten top boxers like Jun­ior Farzan Ali. Marama has five professional fights with 4 wins and a loss. He has knocked out boxers like Rakuro Daunivavana and Robin Hazleman.

Chand also highlighted that former national ama­teur boxing star Josefa Ravudi Jnr would be taking on Tevita Sete of Labasa in his second professional fight.

“Josefa Ravudi is a very disciplined and intelligent boxer and this will be a big test for him as Sete is no pushover.”

All these fights are the undercards to the main bouts where Sebastian Singh defends the Fijian mid­dleweight title against hard hitting Siliveni Nawai while for the vacant super middleweight title sees Abhay Chand taking on Tomu Gaunavou.

Chand said they are working towards securing some sponsorship for the promotion.

“This is a big programme and the match making is done very well as we want fans to get their monies worth by watching quality fights.

“We’re urging the business house sector to come forward to support the programme in one way or another.

“We’re working towards reviving boxing in the country and taking it to greater heights,” he added.
