Four boxers from the Newtown Boxing Club have been drafted into the national team as begin preparations for the Pacific Games next year.
The club which was formed three years ago currently has more than thirty boxers.
Club founder, Jone Loloma says there was a lot of reasons which forced him to form the club.
“We start this club in 2015 many time I come home I see the youths of Newtown Housing and New Town Village beside my house smoking Marijuana sniffing glues. One Afternoon one of them was bleeding because some of the Friends they punch him up on the Road so I bring my Gloves out from my house and started training him.”
Loloma is expected to involve more youth from the Newtown Community to the sport of boxing.
