In the main event bout of a fight card promoted by Lance Revill. At the start of the bout, Hassan Chitsaz appeared to attempted to shake hands with John Ellis Jr., who hit him with a short straight right hand to the head, and the bout ended there. Chitsaz, appeared overweight (despite the Boxrec listing at 220 pounds)and out of shape, went down under the bottom rope, and (as seen in the video below) was unable to get up despite several tries, prompting the stoppage.
Lance Revill is best remembered as the referee of the controversial Z Gorres versus Vic Darchinyan ten round draw in a February 2008 Cebu City IBF super flyweight bout elimination bout. South Bay Promotions promoter John Ellis Sr. of Las Vegas brought Hassan Chitsaz to New Zealand, who wound up fighting the son of promoter Ellis on this card after several opponents, cards and reschedules fell through.
