Tairi Ford defeats Serina Cole

 

  On Friday May, 3 2014 at Princess of Pain: "Round Robin Tournament" at the Auckland Boxing Association, Panmure, Auckland, New Zealand.

Tairi Ford ( 5-2-0) defeated Serina Cole (1-2-0) by TKO at 0:42 seconds of the first round in their 125-pound amateur tournament Championship match.

She also defeated  Hera Tamati (0-1-0) by Unanimous Decision in their amateur MMA tournament semi-finals match.

Tairi is a 28 year old 5'9 fighter of Cook Island decent who is originally from Tokoroa, Waikato, North Island of New Zealand but now living and fighting out of Rotorua, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. She trains out of Waikite Gym under JTK Boxing. and Immortals/Tukaha. She is coached by Josh Te Kowhai, Anaru Grant, Justin Franklin Rob Le Comte and the boys from Tukaha.

I asked Tairi how long has she been training and what got her started in MMA and this was her answer, "I have been training MMA since September 2011. I chose MMA because I wanted to loose weight but also liked how challenging it was so I took it on."
