Nice!
Hopefully he does well. Cruiser is kind of a forgotten about division for me to be honest.

Jai is still young and probs starting to peak physically. Probably no time like the present to really test the waters at the top for him.
Apparently Jai is going to head up a card on the Gold Coast on October 22nd. Not sure who the opponent is. Probably hasn't been announced yet?

Justis Huni is due to make his pro debut and it might be on the same card.

Justis Huni will challenge for the Australian heavyweight title in his pro debut.

He will fight current Australian heavyweight title holder, Samoan born Faiga Opelu 13-1-1, on October 22nd in Brisbane.

They aren't fucking around with Huni @Super_Fly_Sam.
Straight into deep waters!!

There is a lot of hype on Huni though. If they believe he's as good as they say why wait?

I watched him fight on the last world trials? in Moscow, he looked very capable and a cut above the opposition.
For a heavyweight his body movement and evasion looks very good. But we won't know how good he really is - at least in the pro ranks - until he is pitted against top opposition.

I am very keen for this Oz title fight :good

Huni and Opelu sparring in 2016.

On October 22nd they will be contesting the Australian heavyweight title.

Hard to say how much they are really giving each other there.
But Huni who would have been 17 and world youth amatuer champ or near on being the champ looks real good.

Opelu would have been 23 an not yet debuted as a pro.
