Fiji Gold medalist decked in first round
Another Fiji boxer Tomasi Naivaqa lost to Sulan Pownceby in the 81 class. The referee stopped the fight in the second round after the lanky New Zealand unleashed some heavy blows that Naivaqa could not contain.
Fiji's only win came from Inia Vuli in the super heavy weight division when he decked his Samoan counterpart twice in the third round.
The Matuku villager has advanced into the semifinal stages with Metuisela Coriakula.
Other boxers that are expected to take the ring today are Gyan Kumar in the 54 kg and Gerald Aisake in the 50kg class.
