The fight between Whitsunday resident Ngakau "Volcano" Spain (red) and his opponent Shannon "F-16" Forrester sent the crowd into a frenzy on Saturday.

800 at fight night

FIGHT Night II Tropic Thunder had everything.

A huge crowd of about 800 people flocked to Whitsunday PCYC on Saturday Night for the second chapter of the extremely popular event.

Whitsunday Boxing Club trainer Paul Barrett was very satisfied with the outcome of the night and the performance of his fighters.

"Bigger and better than the first one," he said.

"Our tiny little boxing club performed extremely well against the bigger gyms from Sydney." He said he had already had phone calls from people interested in booking corporate tables for Fight Night III which is scheduled for October.

Whitsunday PCYC Activity Officer Kylie Smith said it was definitely a successful night from their point of view.

"It was spectacular to see the Whitsunday community supporting their local boxers and the atmosphere was electric," she said.

Whitsunday Police praised the behaviour of the crowd and said there was no trouble in town after the fight night.
