War on the Wharves 8 – 2 September 2023, Hawaii

Since 2014 MUNZ and the MUA have had charity boxing events on both sides of the Tasman to raise money for charity.
As an extension of this both MUNZ and MUA (MUNZA) are taking a combined boxing team to Hawaii to take on ILWU Local 142 in a charity boxing event in the true spirit of international solidarity.
In 2019 ILWU Local 142 were contacted to ask if they would be interested in a charity fight night between MUNZA and Local 142. In 2020 an invitation was sent to MUNZ and MUA for WOTW7 in Hawaii 2020.
Unfortunately, Covid arrived, and the rest is history until now!
Training has started and travel arrangements are being made and on Saturday 2 September 2023 history will be made by the rank-and-file members from MUNZ and MUA representing our unions as MUNZA along with rank-and-file members from ILWU Local 142 together we will have the first Pacific charity fight night.
