Online sports extra - Motu Sisters

By Tamati Tiananga

Motu sisters are preparing for the National Amateur Boxing competition in Rotorua. The current NZ gold medallist Maria Motu-Gemmell will again fight in the highly competitive 57kg women weight division, while younger sister Sally Motu will take on a stacked field in the 66kg youth girls weight division. While both girls are competing at the National competition, they’re also hoping New Zealand will also grant them permission to compete at the Queensland Golden Gloves next month. This will be the first time for both fighters.
