Fiji score a five to one bout win against New Caledonia

9:26 am on 17 April 2007

Fiji defeated New Caledonia 5 bouts to 1 in a boxing friendly international in Suva last night.

Lepani Ravuniseni beat Christophe Lestage in the opening fight, after the New Caledonian was declared unfit to continue.

Wins also to Joseva Adrole in the 69 kilogram division, Viliame Vitukalulu in the 75 kg, Simeli Valitu also in the 75kg, Inia Vuli in the heavyweight class.

New Caledonia's only win came from the super heavyweight fight where Jean Tuisamoa knocked out Semesa Bulivakacegu in the first round.

The fight was a build up for the boxers ahead of the Oceania Championships in Samoa later this month.
