Tweed fighters to battle
AFTER slugging out the “fight of the night” at their last encounter, Tweed PCYC boxer Travis Chambers and Ashmore PCYC's Luke Stevens are ready to go toe-to-toe once again.
The main amateur contest at Friday night's three-fight professional card at the Tweed Coolangatta Golf Club sees the pair in the ring in an 81kg light heavyweight battle over three by three minute rounds.
Last time they met in Condong on August 1, Chambers took home the fighter of the night award.
Chambers' gym-mates Tom Strain, Dwayne Good and Sam Millar will also feature on the “Heavyweight Destroyers” night presented by Jamie Myer productions.
The 60kg lightweight Strain will be challenging his fellow teenage rival, North Coast champion Dan Beverly, with the Casino fighter having taken the honours in their past three meetings.
Good, a 75kg middleweight, has won his last two bouts impressively, but has the challenging task of defeating experienced fighter Will Parsons from Ashmore, while Millar will take on Varsity Lake boxer Tim McPhiew in the first bout of the night.
Tweed PCYC fighters Trevor Jacky and Casey Hannan will also appear in professional bouts before the heavyweight main event between world number 14 Alex Leapai from Logan City and Cliff Couser, the half-brother of “Iron” Mike Tyson.
Training with Tony Nobbs, Hannan enjoyed an exceptional debut in June, when he claimed a knock out win in the first round over Mehlvin Hernandez, and will be looking to once again impress the punters.
Jacky is a Queensland Golden Gloves light heavyweight champion, and will be making his long-awaited professional debut against Ipswich fighter Marlon Toby.
Also in action on the night will be Murwillumbah fighters Darcey Le Juge and Ian Konrad.
The night will take place at the Coolangatta Tweed Golf Club on Friday, with the opening bell to sound at 6.30pm.
Tickets are $35 for general admission and $65 ringside and can be purchased by telephoning the venue on (07) 5524 4544.
