Suva-based Ghanaian Joseph Kwadjo’s fight, for the first time, will be streaming live on TVWAN Pacific channel.

Kwadjo, 30, will meet New Zealand based Nik Charalampous in an 8-round light heavyweight bout.

Digicel Fiji Chief Financial Officer, Mr Farid Mohammed said Digicel is pleased to provide live coverage of Kwadjo’s fight.

MOHAMMED: “As part of the huge night of boxing from Auckland, Sky Pacific will also show all five undercard fights building up to the big Parker-Takam heavyweight elimination bout. We are delighted to be the first to be able to bring live coverage of local hero, Joseph Kwadjo’s fight from overseas.”

Digicel Fiji stated that veteran boxer Kwadjo has a huge group of followers in the country and that fans will have an opportunity to watch his match live on Sky Pacific.

MOHAMMED: “He will be looking to give his best shot in this fight as he has won just 3 of his last 10 bouts.”

Kwadjo’s opponent is undefeated with 11 wins, 6 with knockouts.

The 23-year old Kiwi of Greek-Cypriot origin is one of the most exciting prospects in a talent-packed weight division. He is known to contain power and speed and is expected to give Kwadjo a tough time in the bout. Charalampous had to shed 4-kgs in a week to make the weight for this fight.

Boxing coverage starts at 8 pm on Saturday on the TVWAN Pacific channel on Sky Pacific.
