Wins after ven­tur­ing south

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Latu Talu may be busy run­ning a box­ing gym th­ese days, but he still finds time to test his skills in the ring.

The Porirua-based man­ager of Can­nons Creek Box­ing Academy was part of a four-strong group of Billy Gra­ham- coached fight­ers who went to Ash­bur­ton for a tour­na­ment re­cently.

‘‘Latu boxed re­ally well, duck­ing and weav­ing and throw­ing com­bi­na­tions,’’ Gra­ham said.

‘‘ He stopped his man in the third round.’’

Gra­ham’s box­ers, who are based at his gym in Nae­nae, Lower Hutt, all won their bouts.

‘‘We made plenty of friends; a great tour­na­ment all round,’’ he said.
