New Zealand’s Shane “Mountain Warrior” Cameron will come face to face with the number 6 ranked Heavyweight in the world, Monte “Two Gunz” Barrett.
Up for grabs are the WBO Asia Pacific and WBO Oriental Heavyweight titles that Barrett won from David Tua in 2011. Those who remember Cameron’s loss to Tua in 2009 know that Shane has a lot to prove in this bout, and he’ll mean business. But has he got what it takes to beat Barrett, a seasoned boxer who has fought four world champions and will come out with guns blazing?
Fighting at Auckland’s SkyCity, the Main Event is preceded by an impressive undercard featuring big names such as former NRL star turned credible boxer Solomon Haumono and New Zealand’s most exciting new heavyweight prospect Joseph Parker in his professional debut. Auckland student and model Jaime Ridge will fight Rosanna Arkle – star of the reality television show ‘The GC’, and former Blackcap Jesse Ryder will take on sports broadcaster Mark Watson.
