Kia Nellijah Vili tekau mā whā tau nō Ngāpuhi, Hāmoa e timata ana i tana hikoi ki te ao mekemeke. I wikitōria ia i tana whawhai tuatahi i te taumata amatuer, me tana rikarika katoa ki te kuhu ano ki te riingi.
I te pō mekemeke Young Guns Blazing i te Rāmere whawhai tuatahi ai a Nellijah 14 rāua ko Cameron Vili 13, e kawe ana i ō rāua whakapapa Hāmoa, Māori hoki.
Ko tā Cammy Subritzsky-Vili (Ngapuhi, Ngāti Kuri), “Of course that plays a lot within it because it's a mixed culture they're up and coming tigers they achieved a lot of stuff they want to achieve.”
Ko ngā hoariri i ahu mai i te Karapu Mekemeke Rotovegas i Rotorua, ko Cameron i hinga i ngā kaute kia Carlos Allan ā ko Nellijah i toa i ngā rāuna katoa o tana whawhai kia Michael Robinson.
Hei tā Nellijah Vili (Ngapuhi/Hāmoa), “I feel incredible that I came out with a victory. When you do hard training it pays off in the ring and I'm happy it's all done.”
“I feel alright, I lost by points but it's alright I'll do better next time,” tā Cameron Vili (Ngapuhi/Hāmoa),
Hei tā Subritzsky-Vili, “The whānau were all rapt to come, I'm rapt that they all came to support Nellijah and Cameron. They trained really hard for this fight, diet wise their fitness, I'm proud of them and they did the best that they could do.”
Otirā taihoa ake nei ka kitea ēnei tokorua e whai ana i ngā tapuwae o Joseph Parker. Kia matāra mai te ao mekemeke!
