By Rewi Heke, Te Kāea

Rising prospect boxer, Hemi Ahio has quickly gained respect in the boxing scene.

Not only does the 24-year-old display excellent technique inside the ring, he also packs a massive punch which Mark Hunt experienced first-hand during sparring sessions.

“He’s one of the hardest hitters I’ve ever sparred with, I’ve been hit many times by a lot of fighters in the world,” says Hunt.

Ahio says, “Just train hard, get in the ring and do what we do.”

Also featuring is Kiwi sporting legend, Monty Betham as he takes on former boxer and MMA fighter, Adam Hollioake.

Ahio, remains cool, calm and collected as the Super 8 Redemption event draws near on March 28th.
