Sydney police have arrested a man wanted in Queensland for attempted murder following a Gold Coast kickboxing event.

Five people were shot or stabbed in a wild melee between the Hell's Angels and Finks motorcycle gangs at the Royal Pines Resort at Carrara on March 18.

A Queensland arrest warrant for attempted murder was issued for Gold Coast man Shane Scott Bowden.

Police allege he was one of up to three men from the rival bikie gangs who fired shots among a crowd of 1,600 at the kickboxing event.

NSW Police said today a 32-year-old man was charged with a Queensland arrest warrant for the offence of attempted murder.

The charge relates to a brawl during a boxing night at a Carrara resort on Saturday March 18, NSW Police said.

The man was arrested during a series of police drug raids in Sydney yesterday that also netted one of NSW's most wanted fugitives, Ramon Youmaran.

The man wanted for the Gold Coast attempted murder is expected to be extradited back to Queensland today.

Police said he had been living in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

He and another man, an alleged bikie gang leader, were arrested together about 3.30pm (AEST) in a car in inner-city Haymarket, police said.

Police will allege they located 3.7g of amphetamine and a quantity of cash in possession of the men.

A 36-year-old Pyrmont man was subsequently charged with supply prohibited drug and money laundering.

Both men were refused bail to appear in Sydney's Central Local Court later today.
