Tumatauenga arisen in Gisborne

Te Ihi A Tu translates to "the rising of the God of War" and took place last Saturday, May 15 in Gisborne.

The event, promoted by Rangataua O Aotearoa (ROA) featured two Apex 80kg fighters in the main event, along with three separate tag-team bouts, and a host of undercard fights.

The main event saw ROA Gisborne's Sam Parkes grind out a close decision against the Combat Academy's Nate Law, in a fight that could have gone either way. Law appeared to have injured his foot and the fight is described as being something of a stalemate.

The tag team battles were described by one trainer as "out the gate", with the men's tag team ending in a stoppage victory to the ROA Gisborne home team, which was described as the highlight of the night.
