Bung Bung Bung! This one has fight of the night written all over it.
Jack Brubaker is a physco and Stevie Spark ain’t that far behind him! We’ll be going round-by-round for the last three fights on the card. Spark has 11 KOs in 11 wins with one KO loss. Love that.
‘Brokeback’ Jack Brubaker (self dubbing) comes out to Ginuwine – My Pony. Was actually OK.

This fight has all the makings of an absolute barnburner. Tarimo is a like a Tasmanian Devil – relentless little fella. He fights to send money home to his missus and family to help finish a house they’re building. Love dayt.
Love Kye ‘Frenzy’ MacKenzie … follow him on the gram. He hasn’t fought in a while but he’s always in good nick.
Bruno’s rig is dyna. Referee Garry Dean gets dropped! The old fella trips trying the avoid MacKenzie.
CUT! MacKenzie has been opened up. Was it a punch or head clash? Ref warns Bruno about ‘butting’ earlier in the second. It was a butt that caused the cut.
Tarimo is a punching machine as MacKenzie looks like he’s been in a bar fight in that hectic pub in Once Were Warriors. Point taken off Tarimo for a low blow.
AND THEY GO THE DISTANCE! Relentless performance from Bruno Tarimo. Wins a comfortable decision over Kye MacKenzie.
Tarimo a machine #GallenBrowne
