The fight with Laurence Murphy lasted three rounds before Retschlag won by unanimous points decision, having fought tough and hard throughout each round.

Nearly four weeks earlier, Retschlag won a bout by technical knockout (TKO) in the heavyweight division of the Masters Boxing Tournament at the Caloundra RSL.

Retschlag’s coach from the Royston-based Bigfoot Boxing Club, Gavin Sahlqvist, said Retschlag had done the club proud with his two latest victories.

It remains uncertain if Retschlag will return to the ring or hang his gloves up.
