Nerang man charged over punch-up that’s left a man in hospital

A fist-fight between two men who know each other has seen one end up in hospital and the other with a court date.

The pair began to throw punches at a park on Cayuga Street in Nerang around 4.25pm on Saturday, when one of them fell and hit his head.

The 51-year-old was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.
