Default Tui Leveni v Rob Medley

After 5 Rounds I'm enjoying this one as much as any local fight I've seen for years. The styles and physical attributes of each fighter matched with their high skill level and work rate makes for a perfect veiwing the same way Ali v Frazier or Leonard v Duran made great theatre at international level.

Into the 7th and Medley's natural brilliance is starting to overwhelme Leveni but there's always the chance that he could get tagged which keeps everyone on edge.

That said Medley is one of my favourites to watch so maybe I'm just biased. My 7yr old son is also impressed....by his artwork and wants to get "the same tomorrow ?!?!"

As I write here comes Leveni.......what heart!!!

Talk about throwing the kitchen sink....Leveni leaves nothing in the tank after each round......Medley is class and will win but Leveni is fun to watch

That was a nice entertaining fight...Leveni was strong but Deadly Medley had great combinations, smart defense and nice uppercuts

Wow, Levini after 10 fights... I was starting to write him off around the 7th round but all credit to him he came back strong. Good fight!

Very good local fight, imagine if they were big names, and this was shown elsewhere too.
Good effort by both, impressed by toughness of med;eys opponet

if medley just had a little bit more pop in his punches it would of been a non issue of going the 12 rounds, full credit to leveni certainly proved a worthy challenger few more fights and hell be right back up there.... great fight to watch from my opinion...

Just before this fight Pitman was on and he went well, looked fast and tidy......but someone tell him to go to the body FFS ....I dont mean straight to the bread basket but left and right rips to the sides.

Then on comes Medley and you see the difference in skill level....he is a complete fighter......Leveni was throwing bombs and a lesser guy would have been KTFO but Medley has great evasion and the best counters moving forward and back....whos next for Medley?....bring them on
