'Diva' downs sixth title across two weight divisions

Ruth Smith

Kātahi anō ka toa i te tuawahine nei te taitara o Intercontinental WKA K1 mō ngā wāhine o raro iho i te 67 kirokaramu.

Kāore te kaikakari koreana i mate wheke, engari ke ia, i pakanga mō te hemo tonu atu me kore noa e hinga ai a Downs .

Kua whakamaua e Downs te pae tata, nā kua huri te aro ki te pae tawhiti, tērā ko te taitara ā-ao.  Ā, kua puta te kōrero ka tū pea te whawhai ki konei, ki Aotearoa.

Ki te hua mai tēnei wawata, ko te wā tuatahi tērā e tū ai tētahi hui pēnei te hirahira ki roto o Kirikiriroa, ā, e whai ana hoki kia nui ake ngā kaiwhawhai wāhine Māori ka puta ki te mura o te ahi.

E whakapaetia ana ka kakari a Downs ki tētahi kaiwhaiwhai toa nō Amerika mō te taitara ā-ao hai te paunga o te tau.
