Boxing: Opetaia vs Kelleher II Results

World ranked Jai Opetaia stopped Benjamin Kelleher last night in Brisbane to take his record to a perfect 20-0 (16 KOs). The number 4 ranked IBF and number 10 ranked WBO cruiserweight stopped the fight in round six of their ten round rematch.

Massive amateur prospect Justis Huni made his professional debut and made history by claiming the Australian heavyweight title with a win over Faiga Opelu. Opelu was game and continued to push forward against a calm and composed Huni but his corner had seen enough in the 7th round and threw in the towel. Huni will be an Australian representative at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The event, promoted by Tasmani Fighters, took place at the Music Hall in Fortitude Valley, Queensland and was broadcast live on Fox Sports and Kayo.
