Josh Tonga to represent NZ at the Oceania Boxing Championships in Samoa

His 5-day trip to Samoa will have him boxing in the Youth under 80kg division and is very much looking forward to the experience. He had been asked to box for Tonga at the tournament as he is of Tongan decent, but New Zealand is home and is keen to rep Aotearoa. Josh has enjoyed the travelling opportunities that boxing has given him and would like to take his skills all the way to the Commonwealth and Olympic games as well as become a professional boxer.

Not just sharp with his fists and footwork, Josh is also an Excellence endorsed student at Level 1 and recently received an academic award at assembly for his hard-work in the classroom.
