Fighting For: Conductive Education

Known affectionately as Benji 'the Killa Gorilla' Oppan, Benji screams dominance when he enters the room. With a look in his eye that makes even the strongest men quiver in their boots, Jason had better come prepared for a duel. Don't expect Benji to take it easy, he's physically and mentally prepared to go the full 6 minutes - but he's planning not to need them.

Kane-Reihana-Fight-For-Christchurch.png

KANE REIHANA

Starting his boxing career innocently enough as an opportunity to improve his fitness with friends, it wasn't long before Kane was taking the ring for club bouts. The ambitious Site Engineer, not yet satisfied with his mounting record, decided Aragorn would be his next target. With a spring in his step and determination to boot, this Taupo-bred contender is always looking to challenge himself, and taking on the tallest contender on the card didn't seem to phase Rugby-mad Kane

Computer Specialist Aragorn Urquhart has already diagnosed Kane as a virus that must be taken down. He's counting on training from the infamous Deacon Henry and his experience in gym fight-nights to lead his charge to a KO result. If his determination is as tall as he is, it'll be a tough ask to keep clear of Aragorn’s powerful left hook.

LEROY MUTU

Leroy is certainly no beginner - he's a club bout veteran, and his experience in the ring will surely prove influential in one of the toughest matches to call on the card! He's a late addition to the OneStaff Fight For Christchurch line up, but his training has been anything but delayed. He's aiming to put Quintin back in his place in a bout you do not want to miss!

With two club bouts under his belt Quintin is as prepared as ever to take on the ultimate challenge. He's a firecracker fighter with fists of steel - Leroy will do well to work on his dodge as too many connections from this heavyweight fighter will undoubtedly rattle even the fiercest of opponents.
