Have gloves, will travel is motto for versatile Mulivai

DANE Mulivai turned professional after representing Australia at the 2010 Commonwealth Games but has struggled to find suitable fights since.

It has led to him trying his hand at just about anything, from mixed martial arts (MMA) to kickboxing and new form of cage fighting called Combat 8.

The results have been the same in all formats, which explains why no-one wants to fight him.

In four fights only one opponent has made it into the second round against Mulivai.

He didn't reach the third.

But just as Mulivai's MMA career seems about to blossom, his big breakthrough in the boxing ring may have arrived.

On January 30, Mulivai takes on unbeaten Steven Lovett in a super middleweight bout (77kg) on the undercard of the Daniel Geale versus Anthony Mundine world title fight at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

"Definitely in 2013, I won't put the pressure on myself, but it's going to be a big year," Redbank Plains resident Mulivai said.

But before then, he has Combat 8 and boxing bouts a week apart to negotiate.
