Views: 22290ADD COMMENT 9 years ago

The WBO Asia Pac Youth Middleweight title was up for grabs and to be battled out between Narooma’s own Leroy Brown versus a very tough Queenslander, Chris Stewart at the Soldiers Club in Batemans Bay.
Leroy Brown, backed with the best trainer Australia has to offer – the legendary Johnny Lewis, looked sharp. Although not quite as strong as Chris, his game plan was to have his opponent punch himself out. This was evident in the first few rounds as Leroy slipped and weaved but Chris’ power kept pushing him against the ropes. Leroy wasn’t using his jabs enough and was more concerned with his counters at times scoring decent punches.

cfc03The last time I was at Luna Park’s Big Top Stadium in Sydney, was to attend Australia’s biggest MMA show – CFC 8. In May 2009, the show kicked off the first leg of an 8 man tournament for the Light Heavyweight championship. A mixture of raw talent along with experienced veterans fought their hearts out and displayed a spectacular show. The following semi finals – CFC 9, held at the Gold Coast, was also a successful show with a capacity crowd. If these last 2 shows were anything to go by, then my beloved Canon and I were sure in for a treat.

North versus South, East versus West, wherever you are in Sydney there’s going to be a suburb that’s your antithesis and somebody that will love, or hate you, just because of a postcode.
nlc03Money might tend to drift to the some of the Northern suburbs but a lot of true grit and boxing spirit seems to be born in the West and less well-off areas. And so when a few Bankstown PCYC boys, and some from further afield than the Sin City itself, fronted up against the local boys at the North’s Leagues Club for an amateur night on Friday August 14 there was more than some pretty little trophies at stake.
The night saw seven fights and two exhibition bouts in a well organized event. The catering was certainly much better than many boxing events I’ve been to and the tables were relatively well arranged away from corners.

The fourth Superboxer event went off without a hitch on July 30, potentially paving the way for a more regular return of boxing to free-to-air TV.
While the Australian-based Contender series is now in production on Fox 8, more Superboxer style events are understood to be scheduled on at least a monthly basis from late November onwards.ofc01But the highlight of the fourth event at the Campsie Orion centre was the first round knockout of Argentinean import Nestor Casanova 22–15–0 (9) by IBO super middleweight champion, and winner of the third US Contender series, Sakio Bika 28–3–2 (19) in 1 minute 27 seconds. Packing power behind every punch it was a right hand that floored Casanova. Bika ended the evening with a call out to Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine while the Argentinean nursed a headache and contemplated the long trip back home.
