A right hook from Lautoka slugger Fred Fraser knocked out Vanuatu’s Fred Nasep in the first round of their 10-round fight at the Korman Stadium in Port Vila, Va­nuatu last Saturday night.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday ring official Marika Yalimaiwai said medics had to rush Nasep to hospital because he was badly shaken by the punch.

“It was a thriller as Nasep had put Franco to the canvas at the start of the round,” Yalimai­wai said.

“But Franco stood up and cleverly worked his way into the fight before Nasep walked into his thunderous right hook and it was all lights out.”

He said also impressive was Sachin Mudaliar who lost narrowly on points to Vanuatu’s Remy Amo along with Robin Hazleman who lost on a split points decision to Jean Louis.

“Robin had come in a replacement boxer but he put on a gutsy performance.”

Homeboy Roy Ser had little trouble as he stopped Saimoni Ratu in the third round and so was Viliame Seru who gave up at the end of the second round to Maximam Warawara.
