P.M. meets Jai Opetaia
Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi offered his support to champion Samoan-Australian boxer Jai Opetaia during a meeting in office this week.
Opetaia is in Samoa for a training camp ahead of his 22 March fight in Belgium against Bilal Laggoune for the IBF Inter-Continental Cruiserweight title.
The undefeated 23-year old is currently 13th in the IBF world rankings, and was in the top ten last year. Opetaia said 7th ranked Laggoune is a good fighter, who is confident in the ring.
