The first fight weekend saw even bigger names attend the Super Boxing League as veteran actor Suniel Shetty was present to support his team Bahubali Boxers on Sunday night.

Actress Daisy Shah was also spotted at the venue as she was supporting the North East Tigers. She was elated with joy when she saw Tigers' captain Asha Roka, knock out her opponent inside just a minute, which proved to be the difference between the two teams on the night.
