HUNI FOSSO RESULTS
Issac Hardman and Tej Singh fight now.
Ben Kite and Danny Kennedy Probably the best fight of the night for the Australian welterweight title. It was all back and forth, both men were injured before Kite dropped Kennedy late in the ninth round. Probably saved by the bell, Kennedy was a game to start the 10th and final frame but got hit the ground early and his corner threw in the towel. Great fight.
Highly rated world weights Andrew Hunt and Luke Woods I played three all-action rounds before Hunt took a TKO win in the third. Hunt showed all his skills in a good first frame before Woods rattled him in the second. Hunt, 23, dropped Hunt in the third before laying on a barrage that forced the referee to end the fight.
Hunt's old man was in his corner. His reaction is pretty great.
Shannon & # 39; Shotgun & # 39; O & # 39; Connell scored a dominant unanimous win over Kori Farr to open the show. Farr was hit on the silver screen twice when O & # 39; Connell won the vacant Commonwealth Women's Bantamweight title.
