NZ HERALD : Kickboxing: Vannathy looking for fairytale hometown finish

Fighters are rarely given the opportunity to sign off with a storybook ending.

Whether it's because they fight on too long or the dangerous nature of the sport strikes, few athletes get the chance to finish the way they always imagined they would.

Porirua kickboxer Sone Vannathy has pulled on his gloves for more than 70 bouts in a 20-year career and the 34-year-old could sign off in perfect fashion tomorrow night in what will likely be his final showing in his hometown.
