Two men have now been charged with the murder of a 37-year-old man outside a pub in Perth's north that had been screening the Danny Green and Anthony Mundine boxing match.

Perth father Diego Hulton, originally from Rotorua, died on February 7, four days after he was bashed while he was believed to have been trying to help his brother Jorveth, who was involved in a fight outside the Brook Bar and Bistro in Ellenbrook.

West Australian police say a 32-year-old man from Balga, who was previously charged with grievous bodily harm, has now been charged with murder, while a 22-year-old man from Coolbinia is also facing the same charge.

The pair will face Midland Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
