A 19-year-old man walked free from a court last week after taking part in a “coward punch” attack on a teenager during “Schoolies Week” last year on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia.
“Schoolies” as it is more widely known is a week-long holiday for Australian high school leavers at the end of the year, celebrating the end of their final exams. The offender has since been challenged to a proper fight… and he’s accepted it.
Footage emerged Caleb Maraku taking part in a group attack on Taliesin O’Meara late last year, showing O’Meara being surrounded by a number of young thugs, kicked by one man and then sucker punched from the side. O’Meara collapsed to the pavement, smacking his head on the ground and being knocked out in the process.
Maraku was later seen taking selfies and laughing as he left the court after being sentenced to just twelve months probation for the sickening attack. A scaffolder from the Gold Coast has now called out Maraku online, telling him to step up and take part in a real, sanctioned fight.
“Caleb you weak gronk get in the ring for our charity scaffolding boxing night?”, the scaffolder wrote in a Facebook message that was later shared on Facebook by boxing promoter Jamie Myer.
“You think ur the man jumping a young bloke 3 on 1 … let’s (see) how you go you little b*tch c*nt.”.
Surprisingly, the young thug responded, telling the scaffolder to get ready.
“Sort it out I’ll come down 100%. Message with the info and dates (and) I’ll see u then,” wrote Maraku.
Myer is hopeful that Maraku will not withdraw from the fight, and will be set to fight his challenger at the QT Hotel at Surfers Paradise in March.
“There are a few scaffolders who want to see how tough he really is in a fair fight,” he said.
