    David Nyika's coach claims the amateur boxer will cope in the professional ranks

    David Nyika's coach claims the amateur boxer will cope in the professional ranks


    He's expected to join the undercard for a rescheduled Joseph Parker-Junior Fa bout, if a suitable opponent can be found.

    That will be his first paid fight, with an exemption meaning he's still being eligible for next year's Tokyo Olympics.

    Coach Cairo George says longer fights won't be an issue, as Nyika's already competed in the world boxing series in England.
