Unfortunately Roy Sio held the short end of the stick in the second round and got canvassed by a perfectly executed left hook.

“I love boxing more than anything and am incredibly passionate about it. I guess you could call it an obsession,” she says.

Views: 24780ADD COMMENT 8 years ago

906V0503When King Davidson meets Zulfikar Joy Ali in the ring at the Croatian club next Saturday night for the Pan Asian Boxing Association light middleweight title, a win should see him walk away with a world ranking in at least the top fifteen if not the top ten.
The 25 year-old Davidson has come a long way since humble beginnings in Nigeria and a defection to Australia after the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006.
An extended stay in Nigeria over the Christmas and New Year break saw his training period for this bout cut short, but trainer Johnny Lewis is still confident the fighter has everything it takes to win the PABA belt.

A star in the making

Views: 17730ADD COMMENT 8 years ago

DPP_0002At just 12 years old Umina Beach junior boxer Satali Tevi-Fuimoana has more determination and drive than most men twice his age and is a potential for the 2016, if not 2012, Olympic Games.
With three fights already under his belt ( 2–1–0), the first at the age of just 10, Satali sometimes finds it difficult to find matches, particularly in his own state where boxing for boys, and girls, under 14 is prohibited.
Satali comes from boxing blood. His mother is a former kick-boxing champion, his father still dabbles in the sport and his older sister, speaking from first-hand experience, has a mad right hook and the makings of a good fighter herself.
