Results: Women gets their first win in NZ

Manurewa, New Zealand played host to a Kickboxing and Boxing mixture event last night, promoted by Terry Tuteru and Ange Davis of South Auckland Leegar Thaiboxing (S.A.L.T) Gym.

First Pro boxing bout of the night, featured Auckland’s Sarah Long taking on Hamilton’s Tash Pakai. Sarah Long fought her best throughout the fight to the point of knocking her opponent down in the second round. Long won the bout by UD, with this being her first pro boxing win for her career.

Next Pro boxing bout was Auckland’s Baby Nansen vs Russia’s Daria Smith. Throughout the fight, the rounds were close, however it was Nansen’s power that put her ahead. Nansen won a very close fight by MD.

For the last boxing bout of the night, Baby Nansens older sister Victoria Nansen, took on Tash Pakai sparring partner, Kirsty Lupeamanu. The fight itself was a hell of a tough fight for both fighters. Lupeamanu won the fight also by MD, also with this being her first pro boxing win for her career.

Down in a small town of Feilding, New Zealand, Lance Bryant took on Invercargill's Thomas Heads for the third time of their career, for the Vacant World Boxing Federation Oceania Cruiserweight title. The fight was a one sided fight, with Bryant leading throughout the fight. Bryant won the bout by TKO in the 10th and final round, winning his 3rd Pro Boxing Title.
