Super 8 event displays thrilling fights

By Te Kāea

Two significant fights took place last night at the Super 8 event in Christchurch. 

Monty Betham once again came out on top in his battle against Adam Hollioake.  Within the first minute and a half, it was obvious Betham was already dominating the fight.

Hollioake didn’t back down though, displaying some brave resistance. 

However, its was Betham's superior speed and technical boxing that eventually forced the referee to step in after Hollioake was knocked down twice, making it Betham’s 7th boxing win.

It was a different story in the celebrity match between Jesse Ryder and Cameron Slater.

Slater, who shed 17kg in training for the bout, was never in the contest against a sharp-looking Ryder.

He knocked Slater down within the first minute and finished the job shortly after.
