top 10 world ranked Nailini Helu. Now she wants to go a step
further and win another title.

Professional Boxing Commision version of the New Zealand
Heavyweight title. If she wins this title, not only will she
hold two titles, but also be the first female New Zealand boxer
to hold two types of title.

boxer will be making her pro debut in September on Andrew
Higgins show against another debutant, Lani Daniels. Win lose or
draw, Vaka will still get her opportunity against Peres.
