Mulomulo Boxing Club’s Ronald Naidu came back in style to beat Franco Fraser on points in their six-round fight at Prince Charles Park, Nadi last night.

In another fight Johnny ‘The Machine Gun’ Singh stopped Saimoni Ratu in the first round. Singh came out with all cylinders firing to send Ratu to the canvas four times before the referee stepped in.

In a heated affair Ratu fought back to floor Singh but was not able to finish him.

“I was confident of knocking him out in the first round,” Singh told SUNsports.

“I had prepared well for this fight and this showed in the way I fought.” Nereo Cakautini was disqualified in his fight against Matthew Michael. Fiji featherweight champion Krishna Mudaliar scored a first round knockout win over Shameer Ali.

The main bout was yet to start when this edition went to press. Other results: Shamal Ramanuj 4TKO win over Rizwan Ali; 4x3min- Sachin Mudaliar UPD Rahul Krishna, Junior Filimoni Naliva 2TKO Edriel Thein.
