Maca is 2 and 0

September 16, 2014
Craig continued (and possibly finished -TBC) his amateur boxing career on Friday night with another win in a corporate fight before Sam Rapira's NZ National Boxing Federation light heavyweight title fight in New Plymouth. The fight went the full 3 rounds and Craig was victorious in the battle of the bars over Kymon Hill with a unaminous points decision....a great fight by both, but Craig's dedicated training and technical skill securing him the win.
