They’ve had plenty of fighting words ahead of their much-anticipated boxing bout on July 21, but when Nazanin Khanjani and Lily Taurau came face-to-face at their Woman’s Day photo shoot, the future opponents clearly had no problems getting along.

As our A-List Insider Dominic Bowden discovered, the girls were more focused on commiserating over their gruelling training schedules than trading punches – verbal or otherwise!

“It’s gonna be weird having to flick the switch and go into aggressive mode,” Lily says of their upcoming fight at the Burger King Road to the Title event in Christchurch.

“I think on the night, when we’re in the ring, we do have to flick a switch,” Naz agreed.

And while both girls have their supporters cheering them on through this journey, Naz reveals it’s her naysayers who have proved the biggest motivation so far.

“My haters are my biggest motivators, honestly – they’re my fuel. Anything negative I get, I just want to prove them wrong,” she said.
