Former IBO Champion to train local boxers

July 30, 2018 6:02 pm

Australian professional boxer with Fijian links Renold Vatubua Quinlan will be in the country next month to train local boxers.

Quinlan is best known for knocking out Australia’s former middleweight world champion Daniel Geal to claim the then vacant IBO super-middleweight title from 2016 to 2017.

Fiji Boxing Commission Chair Bulutani MataitawakilaI says this will be a big boost to the Commission as a whole.

“That is something that we looking at with the budget that has been given to us and we’re hoping to secure some top trainers in NZ or Australia to come over and offer their service here for a short period of time.”

Quinlan will carry out skills training around Suva area and in the Western Division.
Meanwhile, Quinlan’s maternal grandfather, Sailosi Vatubua, represented Fiji in amateur boxing and won a gold medal at the 1966 South Pacific Games in Noumea, New Caledonia.
