Presented by: Crowded House and Bar & Eatery

Rapira Events Ltd are back and presenting the Crowded House Bar & Eatery Taranaki Explosion on Saturday 25 May 2024 at TSB Stadium.

There will be 12 corporate fights between well-known locals on the undercard, culminating in a professional fight between former All Black and Chiefs player Liam Messam and home town hero Darryl Takerei over four three-minute rounds.

Since debuting in 2015, Messam, 39, has had six professional fights without a loss. Promoter and former professional fighter Sam Rapira said the last time Messam fought in New Plymouth was in May 2022. “It was a huge show and it will be again. People love seeing somebody well-known, Liam is a star around here.” Back in 2022, Messam was matched with Thomas Russell and won by unanimous decision.

“The whole community came along. It’s an awesome event that Sam runs, it was an awesome buzz and atmosphere,” Messam said.
