Good win for Porirua boxer

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

Latu Talu said it was all about giv­ing a good show.

The Porirua boxer – and man­ager of Billy Gra­ham’s soon-to-beopened box­ing academy in Can­nons Creek – was a unani- mous points de­ci­sion win­ner over Richard Had­low (Queen­stown) in the 69 kilo­gram cat­e­gory at Here­taunga on May 10.

The bout was part of the Up­per Hutt box­ing club’s an­nual fight night.

Talu said the crowd was rowdy and he had good sup­port.

‘‘It was a good fight, but I could feel [ Had­low] get­ting tired to­wards the end. I gave it all I had and was very happy with the re­sult.

‘‘You want to give a good show to the fans so they don’t get bored, and I think I did that.’’

It was Talu’s sec­ond bout this year. The na­tion­ally-ranked wel­ter­weight has a tour­na­ment in Palmer­ston North next month.

He hoped to start mov­ing gear into the box­ing academy soon, for an open­ing in July.
