Tongan heavyweight boxer Junior Fa will be in the ring tomorrow for his next bout. 

The 27-year-old, who beat Joseph Parker in the amateur ranks twice, will fight American fighter Fred Latham.

Both fighters are undefeated with Latham's record of 9 wins and two draws, compared to Fa's record of 12 wins and no losses.

Fa took to social media yesterday to update his supporters. He says it's been a great trip and trainings have been intense.

"I can't wait to fight. Me and my coach have been training really hard, we've been putting in a lot of work," he says. 

The fight will take place in Cleveland tomorrow, between 4 to 6pm New Zealand time.
