Joseph Parker excitement builds

Joseph Parker arrives in Samoa today for next Saturday’s Rumble in Paradise. How happy are you to have Joseph Parker in Samoa? And are you going to watch the fight? Reporter Vatapuia Maiava asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:

Fasitoo uta

Yes I am excited that he’s in the country. He’s Joseph Parker and an event like this has never been done in Samoa before. He will definitely have his country backing him during this fight. I’ll definitely be going to watch him beat the life out of his opponent.

Agnes Tupa’i

Yes I’m totally excited to see him. I’m excited because I was there when he had the conference and I’m his number one fan. I also work for Digicel and we are behind him all the way for his first ever fight in Samoa. I’m going to go watch the fight because it’s exciting to see something like this live rather than on the television.

Maria Kerstin

I’m very excited that he is in the country. I’m a big fan and I have been waiting for this event for some time. I can’t wait to watch him knock out Jason live because I have never been to a live boxing match before. I am definitely going to watch this fight.

Grace Manuleleua 

Yes I am excited to see Parker. My excitement comes from the fact that he’s an islander and he is well known. It is always nice to see our people succeeding in this world especially in the sport of boxing. After David Tua there haven’t been many famous Samoan boxers out there. Sadly I won’t be going to watch the fight because I will be busy that day.

Molly Feterika

I am very excited to see Parker. I’m excited because it’s not easy to make a name for yourself in Boxing especially for us Samoans. I believe he is undefeated right now and majority of his fights have been won through knock outs, that tells you a lot about how good he is. Although the ticket prices are a bit steep I will definitely go watch him win by knock out again.

Jun Ho Kim

Of course I’m excited about Joseph being in the country. I’m always excited when someone from here makes a name for themselves and then makes the effort to come visit his or her homeland. He will surely have all of Samoa backing him during his fight. I already have a ticket and will be going to watch him win. another one for us fans.
