The Samoa Amateur Boxing Association has named Team Samoa for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia. The Fight for Marist last week was one of the final trials.
Unasa ‘the Undertaker’ might have won the battle of ring entrance but it was his opponent, Tagaloa ‘Snakey’ Roebeck, who had the last laugh in the main event in the Fight for Marist III last night. A split decision went in favour of Snake, whom at one point, struggled to get off the canvas after his opponent landed a flurry of punches.
The heavyweights in the upcoming Fight for Marist are ready for more than just a fight. One of them has gone ahead and prepared a grave and a coffin for his opponent, days out from their main event.

With the deal signed and the trash talking done, Samoa’s world champion Lupesoliai La’auliolemalietoa Joseph Parker has one more thing to do. Prove that he can truly smash the “glass chin” of his more fancied British opponent, Anthony Joshua.
If Joseph Parker wants to rile Anthony Joshua it's going to be tough. Not even being branded a drugs cheat ahead of their heavyweight unification fight provoked a mellowed Joshua. "There's so much boring trash-talk that nothing is new anymore," Joshua said after a news conference with Parker on Tuesday to launch their March 31 fight in Cardiff, Wales.

Their eagerly awaited unification bout takes place at the Principality Stadium, with the big-punching rivals also defending unbeaten records. Joshua is 20-0 and Parker 24-0.

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury accepted a backdated two-year doping ban on Tuesday, freeing him to fight again if he regains his boxing license.
Deontay Wilder can't wait to get Anthony Joshua into the ring. He's just not sure when it's going to happen. "I just want to prove who is the best, that's all I want to do," Wilder said Thursday. "I want people to see a great fight and witness the two best heavyweights compete with each other one night in the ring."
Former heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, has backed Lupesoliai La’auli Joseph Parker to knock out Anthony Joshua – if and when they eventually go toe-to-toe. He is so confident he has indicated he will bet £5,000 on the Samoan champion to knock Joshua.
