Nambucca Heads goes off at Fight Night

THE NAMBUCCA Heads Bowling Club was packed to the rafters on Saturday night for a 21-card boxing tournament that delievered everything but a Cinderella finish for local fighters.

Many of the Nambucca Heads pugilists tasted victory in their debut fight, while others also celebrated after a long time out of the ring.

But the feature event, with local lad Mitch Stapleton, saw him surrender his League Boxing NSW State title after a good contest with Grafton's Matthew Lambert.
