BY KEVIN TEME For the first time, the Oceania Fight Promotion (OFP) Company will host the World Boxing Council’s sanctioned title fight in PNG. “It has been a long time coming,” OFP promoter and boxing legend Martin Beni said. Beni’s last title fight was held back in 1974 for the Australian title shot which was held at the Sir Hubert Murray Stadium. Four years later, another boxing legend Late Johnny Aba had another go in the World title shot against a Panamanian boxer named Eusebio Pedroza. Aba lost lost but the title shot was also held in Port Moresby. Both Beni and late Aba had put PNG on the world boxing map and from then, professional boxing in the PNG went into hibernation. “Professional boxing died in the country but I want to thank Oceania Fight Promotion for reviving this code. For myself, I want to see a world champion in professional boxing before I close my eyes,” said Beni. OFP Managing director Maryanne Millie, the only female who had stepped into resurrecting professional boxing after seeing the need to expose PNG local talents said, “It is an honor to receive the Light weight title belt for the first time in many years.” Millie said this title will be fought between PNG’s current light heavy weight champion John ‘The Stoppa’ Korake and Thailand’s current light weight champion title holder Chaloemporn Sawatsuk. “This title shot is sanctioned by the World Boxing Council and the Asia Boxing Council and I just want to thank all our major sponsors including National Gaming Control Board, MVIL, Data Co, Kumul Consolidated Holdings, Kumul Petroleum Holdings, B-Mie and of course our good Prime Minister Hon James Marape for making it possible for this title fight to happen on 1st December in Port Moresby,” Millie said. Millie is urging all the fans and supporters in Port Moresby and right across the country to get behind PNG’s local talent John ‘ The stoppa’ Korake who will take on the visiting Thailand’s light heavy weight champion Chaloempor Sawatsuk for the WBC light heavy weight title fight between PNG’s Korake and Thailand’s Sawatsuk.
