The PNG Amateur Boxing Union hosted the PNG Amateur Boxing Association hosted the International Fight Night boxing tournament at the Lamana Gold club. The PNGABU was hoping to use the tournament as good preparation for PNGs boxers and the roster of Australian fighters featured a lot of quality. The night opened with three bouts featuring local fighters. The most anticipated fight of the night was between Jessie Travers and Henry Umings in the 56kg.


In most of the previous bouts, the Australians had tired the PNG boxers out, this time, it was Umings who was dancing his way to victory. Umings won in the end, much to the delight of the watching fans.
