Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi is excited. 

He is looking forward to Samoa’s WB.O. heavyweight Champion, Lupesoliai Laauliolemalitoa Joseph Parker’s visit tomorrow.

In confirming the visit yesterday, Tuilaepa said Lupesoliai will be in the country next week for  a big celebration.

He declined to give the specific date and only pointed out that a statement will be distributed to reveal the details of Parker’s visit. 

Asked if the government was planning a national holiday for the Champion, Tuilaepa was hesitant to comment. 

“The decision has been made and it will be provided,” he said. 

“The thing is we will not be announcing this by word of mouth it will be written down properly and distributed…so wait for it but don’t go ahead without it.”

A press statement from the Press Secretariat or from the Prime Minister’s office was not received by press time last night.
