AUSTRALIAN Brentt Dames defeated Fiji’s Ronald Naidu on unanimous points decision to win the World Boxing Foundation welterweight title at Nadi’s Prince Charles Park last night.

Meanwhile, Rakuro Dauvavana landed a huge right on Krishna Mudalliar to win by TKO in just 45 seconds of the first round of the main supporting bout.
