Junior Fa Headlines His First Show in New Zealand

Kiwi boxing Ace Junior Fa 14-0 ( 8 KO’s ) headlines his first show in New Zealand live on Sky TV this Friday at the Indian Motorcycle fight night in Auckland on a card promoted by New Zealand boxing great Shane Cameron and co-promoted by DiBella Entertainment.

Junior will face the current Mexican heavyweight champion Luis Pascaul 13-1 ( 9 KO’s ) over 10 rounds for the interim WBO Oriental title. Fa, who beat Joseph Parker twice in the amateurs is looking for a dominant victory before he heads back the the USA later this year.

“I’ve been working really hard for this fight, I haven’t stopped training since my last fight and I plan to come in career best shape and make a big statement.” said Junior Fa. “I want to thank the promoters Shane Cameron and Lou DiBella and I look forward to headlining on Sky TV.”

“I'd like to thank Shane Cameron for promoting this fantastic show featuring Junior Fa, a terrific and unbeaten heavyweight prospect that I am thrilled to promote. Shane was a hell of a fighter himself, so it’s great to see him moving into boxing promotion and doing really well,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. "

Mark Keddell who manages Junior stated: “I’ve brought in Malik Scott from the United Stated for an extended sparring camp with Junior to make sure he keeps progressing and it’s paid off. Juniors trainer Doug Viney said Junior has performed really well in preparation so we all expect a great performance come fight night!”

Fa weighed in at his lowest career weight of 251lbs while Pascaul weighed in heavier at 252lbs.

Brendan Bourke who heads up DiBella Entertainment in the Asia Pacific region stated: “I’d like to thank Shane Cameron and Sky TV for this great opportunity for DiBella Entertainment fighter Junior Fa! Its been easy work setting up this fight and we hope to work with Shane again in the near future.”

One thing is for sure, Junior Fa is climbing up the World rankings and will soon be in the mix for big fights in the USA and possibly one of the biggest domestic showdowns against Joseph Parker that New Zealand has seen since Shane Cameron fought David Tua.
