Follow the action of the Super 8 Fight Night at the North Shore events centre

MAIN EVENT: Shane Cameron v Kali Meehan; Winner Kali Meehan unanimous decision

WBA Pan African Heavyweight Title

(10 x 3min rounds)

Round 10: A great round to finish but it looks as though it will be Meehan's victory, this is to be confirmed. A brave effort by Cameron, he said before the fight if he is defeated then he will retire, so this could of been the last time we see Cameron in the ring.

Round 9: Cameron trying to conjure up something, he's throwing everything at Meehan, but the Aussie-based Kiwi is fighting smart, and using his height advantage to stay out of harms way.

Round 8: It's a huge effort in the ring, both fighters are running on their second wind. Meehan just has so much power in his shots. Credit to Cameron he's not giving up and keeps coming forward.

Round 7: These fighters are putting everything into this fight, Meehan taking the honours in that round and Cameron is being told by his corner that he's got to find something special or it's over.

Round 6: There is plenty of feeling in this fight, both are still totally determined in this fight. This is far too close to call.

Round 5: We are halfway and it was a very close round, Meehan still showing plenty of power, Cameron putting out a lot of shots. Cameron's eye is a bit of a mess and getting plenty of work from his corner during rounds.

Round 4: Meehan slowed down the pace slightly and he may of got the points for this round. Cameron has a good amount of swelling under his left eye.

Round 3: Cameron throwing some huge shots himself now, Meehan punching straight through the guard of Cameron. It's another tough round to score, it's fairly even at this stage.

Round 2: Cameron getting himself into the fight, he's just got to be careful of Meehan's huge shots. It was a fairly even round. 

Round 1: Some huge shots by Meehan, he has got plenty of power behind his punches. The first round going to Meehan. Cameron will be hurting early.

We are ready for the big event, Shane Cameron and Kali Meehan. It could be the end of a career for the loser of this fight.

Round 5: McCracken has had a good fifth round, Aloua looking tired, needs to get a second wind. But that round has to go to McCracken. 

Round 4: McCracken continues to step into Aloua. But it may of been an even round as McCracken did start well as Aloua looked a little tied but came back in the final minute.

Round 3: Aloua is getting more clean shots onto McCracken which is likely to be giving him a slight edge, but still really close. Aloua's corner yelling for him to put in the upper cut.

Round 2: It was another close round, although McCracken starting to get into his work, but may still slightly favour Aloua

Round 1: Both fighters just easing into it, but Aloua may of just had the edge.
