The Big Bash 8

  • The Auckland Netball Centre 7 Allison Ferguson Drive Auckland, Auckland, 1072 New Zealand (map)

Get your tickets & tables fast; this unprecedented card will deliver an awesome night of boxing you'll never forget!

The epic Main Event bout sees Daniel Tai, revered for his unstoppable, hard hitting, 36-fight pro career, taking on undefeated, current NZNBF Heavyweight Champion, Hemi "The Heat" Ahio as they contest the inaugural NZPBC & the IBO Oceania Orient Heavyweight Titles. This bout is going to be the most explosive & exciting heavyweight battles this country's ever seen, considering Daniel's never been KO'd in pro boxing career & Hemi is considered NZ's hardest hitter since David Tua & a genuine knockout artist, this fight has got the ingredients to be an absolute blinder!

Preceding that our Co-Main Event features the multi-talented and formidable, Baby "The Pitbull" Nansen contesting the inaugural NZPBC Women's Lightweight title vs Quinita Hati, a veritable multi-talent & newcomer to the pro-boxing scene in what should be a compelling clash to find out NZ's premier women's boxer!

The Main-Undercard bout on this high calibre & deep 11-bout pro card features the hard-hitting and highly technical, NIK "The Greek" Charalampous squaring off against raw talent, Junior Tapuni in an exhilarating encounter for dominance!

The undercard features several highly anticipated bouts and up & coming talent showcasing the way from 8 pm preceded by 6 inspiring corp bouts kicking the night off at 6.30pm.

It's the best NZ card we can remember & certainly not one any self-respecting boxing fan should miss!
