New Zealand news: James Wilson and Junior Fa return

Ringside 19/10/2017

James Wilson who came to fight three times in one month earlier this year in New Zealand, has returned to the sport in Mexico. He won the fight by Knockout, only 15 seconds in the first round.

And finally we have received word Junior Fa will be making his in ring return in America. It is unknown who his opponent will be at this stage or if he will be fighting for a regional title, but this will be his first fight since his win in May over Hunter Sam.

We do know that Junior Fa has had some problem dealing with aggravating. Fa has a very busy 2016 with 9 fights, which wouldn’t have helped. After some good time off, we are hoping Junior has recovered and looking to get another W before end of the year.

On a side note, it has been recognised that Conrad Lam is next in line for a title shot with in any of the NZ commissioning bodies. So the question is who will he challenge for the titles?

Anthony Taylor took on Nick Hikorua on the 7th of October making his first fight in 18 months. Taylor won the bought by TKO in the 3rd round but this time he has came up a weight into the Super Welterweight class.

He will be fighting on Shane Cameron fight night in November, live on Sky TV. He will be taking on NZ ranked 3rd (who peaked at 1st earlier this year) Jerome Pascua.
