Pacific Islands Boxing Is Back And On Its Way
Pacific Islands Boxing Is Back And On Its Way.
According to New Zealand Professional Boxing Association secretary general, Mr. Pat Leonard, "Pacific Islands boxing is back and on its way."
The international line up last night at the Event Polynesia Boxing promotion had the crowds cheering and applauding.
Both Tongan boxers Sosaia Vaka and Oscar Siale won their fights. The Joey Wilson and Moyoyo Mensah fight went down to a split decision to Joey of New Zealand. Mohammed Azzaoui, normally a cruiserweight took on former New Zealand heavyweight champion Amosa Zinc to win by unanimous decision.
The fight of the night will have to be the heavyweight contest between Daniel Tai and Seiaute Mailata. It was a bruising encounter of guts and stamina until the fight was stopped on advice by ring doctor Dave Renata with a cut on Seiaute's right eye. The main event saw David Tua attending to Bob Gasio's corner with Fijian challenger Sakeasi Dakua going down twice before the fight was stopped in the sixth round.
It was excellent to see the boxing fraternity turning up to support with familiar faces in the crowd including former New Zealand champions Lighting La'avasa, Ali Afakasi and Alex Su'a, also boxing promoter and Shane Cameron's manager Ken Reinsfield and international match maker Mr. John Glozier.
Last nights bouts will be screened later in the month during the weekly Event Polynesia Boxing 10 minute TV program on Triangle TV and Stratos Channel on SKY TV with former rugby internationals and Fight For Life veterans Papaliitele Peter Fatialofa and Ofisa Tonuu as commentators.
Event Polynesia Boxing is leading the resurgence of Professional Boxing in New Zealand and the South Pacific to involve all the Pacific Islands. Its next promotion is scheduled for Tuesday 19th August 2008 at the Otara Recreation Centre, promising another display of Pacific talent and flair.
Please find official results of the Event Polynesia Boxing Promotion last night. These results will now be going World wide to all major Boxing bodies, as well to all other promoters in NZ and Australia.
