The Auckland boxer Shane Cameron has beaten the American fighter Monte Barrett with a fourth round knockout in their heavyweight title fight at Sky City in Auckland.

Cameron reclaims the WBO's Asia Pacific and Oriental heavyweight titles he lost to David Tua, and which Barrett took off Tua last year.

The towering Joey Wilson went the distance in the main undercard against rugby league star turned heavyweight Solomon Haumono, the fight ending in a draw.

The promising 20-year-old fighter Joseph Parker made his professional debut with a second round TKO against Dean Garmonsway, while the cricketer Jesse Ryder easily won his bout against radio talkback host Mark Watson with a first round knockout.

Jaime Ridge won a points decision in her three-round fight with fellow TV celebrity Rosanna Arkle.
