Cameron vows to continue fighting

7:06 am on 7 October 2009

A battered and bruised Shane Cameron has vowed to continue boxing despite the pummelling he took at the hands of David Tua at the weekend.

Cameron has spoken publicly for the first time since Saturday's fight when he was knocked out early in the second round.

Cameron says it's a tough loss to take as he was confident he could win but Tua simply outfought him.

He says he won't be boxing again this year as he has a mandatory three-month stand down after suffering a TKO but is determined to be back in the ring next year.

In his time off he will have three plates removed from his right hand.
