Unasa ‘the Undertaker’ might have won the battle of ring entrance but it was his opponent, Tagaloa ‘Snakey’ Roebeck, who had the last laugh in the main event in the Fight for Marist III last night.
A split decision went in favour of Snake, whom at one point, struggled to get off the canvas after his opponent landed a flurry of punches.
This is an official account from the Marist Media.
There has been a lot of hype leading up to the Battle of the Big Boys and judging by the reactions of tonight’s crowd, it lived up to it.
Arriving in style, Unasa the Undertaker, made good on his offer to build his opponent, Snake the Nakey, a coffin.
Walking in to Michael Jackon's thriller, crowd goers laughed and cheered with many grabbing their phones to capture and share with friends. Snake the Nakey left his walk-in antics for the ring, where he dropped down and began a dance routine for his opponent waiting in the red corner.
The audience lapped up all the pre-match action, as the two Big Boys dished out what they planned to do.
But when the bell rang, it was all business, Snake The Nakey wasting no time and immediately engaging The Undertaker. After two rounds it appeared that Snake had the upper hand over his rival.
In round three however, the Undertaker emptied the tank and landed a good combination that caused Snake to fall. The final ditch attempt wasn't enough however with a split decision going in favour of Snake the Nakey.
A big malo and fa'afetai to the Big Boys. It is never easy getting in the ring, especially in front of a large crowd and live broadcast. You both performed exceptionally and our club thanks you for being part of this years competition.
