PROFESSIONAL CARD IN MORE DETAIL:
Lightweight 4 x 3 Minutes:
AUNG SANDA (AKLD) 0-0 vs SCOTT GARDNER (WGTN) 2-0 (2 kos)
This will be the Professional debut for Sanda, a leading Amateur who will need to use all of his skill and experience to avoid the onrush of aggression from Scott “the Rock” Gardner. Gardner enjoys a fight and the harder it gets the better he likes it.

Super Middleweight 6 x 3 Minutes:
ISAAC PEACH (AKLD) 5 – 1 vs GUNNAR JACKSON (Tauranga) 7 – 1
This fight would not usually happen this early in their respective pro-careers as there is a lot at stake for both fighters, but they are getting it on because of this event and the boxing fans have asked for it!

Peach a former amateur Middleweight champion will need all his guile and street-smarts to handle the ever improving Jackson. Peach has stated “he couldn’t beat me in the amateurs, he won’t beat me now”. Jackson is one of the most active Professional boxers in NZ and will be a different opposition than the one who faced Peach in the Amateurs.

Light Middleweight 6 x 3 Minutes:
STEVEN “Chur” HEREMAIA (AKLD) vs WAHID KHAN (Fiji)

Heremaia has been one of NZ’s best performing professionals over recent years, competing with and beating some of the best fighters in Australasia. The ‘Fight of the -Century’ event 2009 (Tua v Cameron) was set alight by Heremaia in the opening fight against Frank LaPorto, dropping the Australian champion three times on the way to a comfortable points win.

Wahid Khan knows Heremaia very well as they went at it hard in 2006. Khan thinks it’s unfinished business and he’s now got the fights under his belt to test the gun-fighter style of Heremaia.

Heavyweight 4 x 3 Minutes:
“King” AFA TATUPU (AKLD) 6-1 vs JOEY WILSON (AKLD) 7-2
“King” Afa Tatupu (6-1 6ko’s) has been Shane Cameron’s chief sparring partner for the past six weeks and is primed and ready for the 6’6 120kg Joey Wilson (7-2 3ko’s) - in what promises to be an entertaining action packed fight between these two up and coming heavyweight fighters.

Light Heavyweight 6 x 3 Minutes:
DANIEL MCKINNON (Otorohanga) vs KASHIF MUMTAZ (AKLD)
Daniel McKinnon is a former World Boxing Organisation Oriental Super Middleweight champion with a best ranking as high as # 11 in the world.

Kahif Mumtaz represented Pakistan at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Mumtaz stayed downunder after the Olympics and turned professional. Over the past decade Mumtaz has fought the very best in Australasia. After his defeat by the “Amazing” Maselino Masoe on the last Tua card, Mumtaz hit straight back knocking out Australian Super Middleweight king Les Sherrington in the 1st round. Mumtaz can never be under-estimated.

MAIN EVENT:
12 x 3 Minutes:
David Tua (NZ) vs Monte Barrett (USA)
