TOOWOOMBA WELTERWEIGHT PROSPECT JAMIE HILT will take on Brisbane’s Ben Kite in an all Queensland showdown on the undercard of Herman Ene-Purcell vs Paul Gallen II at Rumours International on January 29.
Hilt, trained in the Garden City by Craig Monagle and Kite, trained by Steve Deller from Fortitude Valley will clash in a four round welterweight bout.
“This is a great all Queensland match between two fighters in form,” Promoter Brendon Smith said.
“Both boys are coming off victories and are both in strong camps.
“Jamie is a very popular fighter in Toowoomba and every time he fights he earns new fans.
“Jamie is unbeaten in three fights while Ben hasn’t tasted defeat in his last four so both are on the rise,” Smith said.

Ben Kite has a career record of 6 fights for three wins, one draw and two losses.
After losing the first two bouts of his career, he’s bounced back to record three wins and a majority draw in his last four.

“Jamie is a real talent,” trainer Craig Monagle said.
“He’s really adapted to professional boxing with great ease.
“He’s a pleasure to train.
“He trains hard and fights hard that’s why he’s won so many fans.
“Ben Kite is a good fighter so this is a good test for Jamie.
“It’s great to feature on this big card, we’re looking forward to it,” Monagle said.
