WKF AUSTRALIA report about our last Oceania K-1 titlefight in Sydney on April 19th.
This fight night has been dedicated by Jez Promotions to honoring the Founding Father of this Nation, the late Great Grand Chief Sir Michael Thomas Somare (1936 – 2021) by a minute silence.
Paul, Gordan and Bernard, the spirit of our late Chief is with you tonight as you take the stage to challenge some of Australia’s finest and best in this sport.
Make him and us the people of PNG proud!
One of the international main fights was for the continental Oceanian Title in Heavyweight – 96,4 Kg / 212 lbs.
Congratulations to Rustam Ali Attai (The President) for winning this fight by split-decision. Also well done to Paul Ben Aiaro for putting up a good fight. This fight was important for both warriors and Lady Luck was on the President’s side

“Had my first fight as an amateur on 7 December 2005.
Finally, more than 15 years later, I will officially begin my career in kickboxing as a professional. Haven’t reached my fighting shape yet & wasn’t expecting to fight next week but I should be okay. If you would like to come, watch & support please contact the promoter or inbox me for details. Please get your tickets early to avoid any disappointment. The show is likely to be a sold out event as it was already packed with other good fights so there may not be any tickets left at the door.
to Bernard Temu on the title win last night in the main event, the “Professional South Pacific Light Weight Title”. Your opponent wants it for himself in July 2021 rematch. Iam sure you will defend it well and make it your own.
to Paul and Gordan for their performances last night. It all came down to the final points on the judges score cards. Keep your heads above waters and dont drown in this sea of defeat. Always, be positive for the next and future events in this very unpredictable sport.
Well done team! ” Rustam said!
