Update: 11PM FILIPINO Rey Anton Olarte floored Opeti Tagi three times and won on a split points decision tonight.
The ninth-ranked Australian light welterweight fighter took out the
10x3-minute Naidiri Boxing Promotions contest in Nadi with ease in front
of a partisan crowd.
Olarte's manager, George Reno, said they didn't understand why one judge scored against his boxer.
"Opeti fell three times. That's a six-point deduction," Reno said.
Tagi, dubbed the Naitasiri Prince, said he lost to a better boxer.
In an earlier bout, the referee stopped the fight between Junior Mana and Arjun Kumar.
