World heavyweight champion Lupesoliai La’auli Joseph Parker will have two more screaming Samoans to back him at Manukau tonight thanks to the complete communications and entertainment provider, Digicel.
Tai Vaeluaga and friend Lawreen flew to Auckland last night to be at ringside when Lupesoliai Parker defends his title against Romanian challenger, Razvan Cojanu.
Earlier this week, they met with Deepak Khanna, Digicel Samoa’s Chief Customer Officer, to collect her VIP Fight tickets and accommodation details.
Ms. Vaeluaga is the winner of Digicel’s VIP Experience data promotion. All she had to do as a pre-paid customer was purchase any data bundle. Every $1 spent earned one entry.
At the presentation, the excitement in the room was contagious.
“I never thought I’d win so it was a huge surprise to receive the call saying that I was the winner!” said Ms. Vaeluaga.
“Like every proud Samoan, I’ve always followed Parker and Tua’s fights. Whether you’re a boxing fan or not, you can’t escape it, so I’m really excited for the opportunity to actually watch the fight live and especially with Lawreen who has always been a great friend.
“This trip is going to be amazing and I’m glad that, thanks to Digicel, I get to share this experience with her.”
Tai and Lawreen left last night, returning Sunday afternoon – a flying visit for the two friends who are looking forward to an unforgettable experience.
“This is just one of the many ways that we’ve been able to reward our customers,” said Mr. Khanna. “We thank Ms Tai for her continued loyalty as a Digicel customer and hope that she and Lawreen have a fantastic trip – we can’t wait to follow their journey to the boxing ring and back.”
