27 seconds! Beast's brutal KO on debut


//

Former NRL star Manu Vatuvei has scored a brutal TKO win in his professional boxing debut, destroying opponent David 'Brown Buttabean' Letele in 27 seconds on Saturday night.

Vatuvei, 32, came out swinging and landed a series of heavy shots on Letele, especially with the right hand. He finished the fight with a vicious right uppercut, follwed by a right hook.

Letele hit the canvas just 27 seconds into the first round and told the referee he was not fit to continue.

Vatuvei, the only NRL player to score 10 tries or more in 10 consecutive NRL seasons, said he was keen on a bout with Cronulla Sharks forward Paul Gallen, 37, who is 8-0 as a professional boxer.

“That’s something I want to do but I need a lot more experience and a lot more fights to get to where he is,” Vatuvei said.

Letele entered the fight with a 16-3 record but had no answer for Vatuvei's power.

Vatuvei, affectionately known as 'The Beast' during his rugby league career, scored 152 tries in 226 games for the New Zealand Warriors. He was known for his brute force on the wing; plus his occasional nightmares with hanging on to the ball.

He said he has been given a quick wake-up call in his new sporting pursuit.

“At the start I was a bit too relaxed I think and he caught me with a good right hand and then I just had to compose myself and get back into it,” Vatuvei said.

Parker's stunning comeback KO

Vatuvei was fighting on the Joseph Parker vs Alexander Flores undercard in Christchurch. Parker, New Zealand's former world heavyweight champion, unleashed a brutal KO win of his own, stopping Flores in the third round.

Flores complained of a low blow when first put down by Parker but the stoppage came soon after. The New Zealander put the Mexican-American through the ropes with a powerful flurry of punches.
