He says he will be facing Ravolaca for the third time and knows he has to step up his game.

“I’ve been training and working out a lot in these few weeks, I’m trying hard to come back out on the 24th because I’ve fought with this guy twice so he’s coming stronger”

There will be six amateur fights and six professional fights including one women’s bout.

The program will include renowned boxers like Junior Farzan Ali, Joseph Kwadjo and Gabrielli Ravalawa.

The main bout will be between Kwadjo and Apisai Naciqa in the cruiserweight division.

The promotion will be held tomorrow at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva.
