New Zealand boxer Junior Fa has won his debut fight in the United States.

Fa defeated Keith Barr with a knockout in the third round of a scheduled six round fight.

Fa and Barr fought on the undercard to the Wilder-Washington bout in Birmingham, Alabama.

This makes 10 wins out of 10 fights for Fa.

Seven of those wins were knockout.

Fa fought under his new three year contract with WBC promoter Lou Dibella.

He knocked Barr down three times before the referee declared in his favour.

Fa told Newshub the work with his trainer Mike Schofield had helped his game.

He said he felt in superior physical shape.

“These days I’m switched on as soon as I get into the ring,” he said.

ESPN reported earlier this year that if he won in Alabama, Fa would return for fights in New Zealand in March and May.

The 27 year old boxer turned professional a year ago with a win against Richard Tutaki.

Although New Zealand born and raised, Fa has represented Tonga internationally, winning a bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India.
