HERVEY Bay boxer Jarrod Fletcher was at his destructive best in New South Wales on Friday night.

Fletcher registered the sixth KO of his six-bout professional career after hammering Indonesian-born southpaw Aswin Cabuy into submission at the Croatian Club in Sydney.

Fletcher went on the attack from the opening bell and he didn't let up.

By the end of the fourth round, Cabuy had taken enough punishment and failed to come out of his corner for the fifth.

The 27-year-old Fletcher, the Pan Asian Boxing Association middleweight champion, said he was pleased with the win.

“Cabuy was a very awkward opponent but I got the job done quite easily,” Fletcher, who turned joined the fight for pay ranks after representing Australia at the Beijing Olympic Games, said.

“He likes to dominate from the start – I didn't let him.

“I hit him with some really good head shots in the first round and that put him on the back foot.

“After that, I moved downstairs and hit him with some big body blows.

“I felt good and I was moving well, so it was another good result.”

The bout was Fletcher's third since he had reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder after he pulled a piece of bone off it during a sparring session in Brisbane 12 months ago.

It was the same shoulder the Melbourne Commonwealth Games champion had already undergone two lots of reconstructive surgery on.

Fletcher said he had come through the fight well.

“I pulled up sweet and I am ready to go again in two weeks,” Fletcher said.

Fletcher will be in action next when he takes on Fiji's Tevita Vakalalabure live on ONE HD in Melbourne.

Vakalalabure has won 14 of his 25 bouts, 11 by KO.

It's a bout Fletcher said he was looking forward to.

“He's a big, strong bloke and he can hit,” Fletcher said.

“It will be tough, but my plan will be the same for him.

“I'll be doing my best to knock him out – just like I've done to all the others before him.”
