EXCITEMENT WAS IN THE AIR as the fighters hit the scales and went face to face at today’s media weigh in. IBO World champion Jack Asis and his opponent Indonesian champion Hero Tito both looked extremely fit and ready for action.
While Herman Ene-Purcell and Joel Clifton eyed each other off for the first time. Clifton has a distinct height advantage. He towered over the Hermanator when they eyeballed each other.
“These are two big fights,” Smithy’s TGW Gym trainer Steven Spark said.
“With Herman we always knew Clifton would tower over him, but that’s nothing new for him.
“In every one of his bouts he’s been the smaller fighter.
“It’s a title fight, they don’t com easy so we need to be at our best tomorrow night.” Spark said
The Chinese team headed by Liu Gang both looked fit and ready on the scales and confident they can take two wins back to China.
These two bouts will be landmark occasions in Queensland boxing. It will be the first time China’s number one promoter Liu Gang has ever travelled to the Sunshine State.
This card is a great mix of local, state, national and international fights.
One of the many highlights is undefeated young guns Brent Rice and James Katz going head to head.
“We have a great flavour on this card,” Steven Spark said.
“Every bout is an important one for the immediate future of so many of these fighters.
“I have no doubt many of the names fighting tomorrow night – you will hear plenty more about in the future.”
