Man coward-punched while trying to stop fight

A 23-year-old Oxenford man is in a critical condition after being punched during a fight in Surfer's Paradise.

Police say two groups of men were involved in a physical dispute around 3am on Orchid Avenue.

The 23-year-old man intervened to stop the fight when he was punched from behind, causing him to fall and hit his head on the pavement. 

The men fled but were located at The Esplanade not long afterward. 

Two men are assisting police with their investigation.

The Oxenford man was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital.
