Roundhouse, Uni of NSW, Kensington, Sydney (NSW)
IMG_9707Kurt Bahram (9–1 3KOs) rebounded from his previous controversial, premature stoppage loss to win the NSW Middleweight Title from Leroy Brown (6–1–1). Bahram used the ring well with his movement and constantly beat Brown to the punch with his superior jab. Brown kept coming forward throughout the contest but found his opponent too elusive as Bahram kept piling up the points and picked his angles well to unanimously outpoint Brown by the scores of 77/75, 77/75, 78/76.

27265_1416345290086_1276203941_31225534_1559989_n-1Australian featherweight champion Aussie Joel Brunker likes his training tough. The tougher the better. Now one of the few professional fighters good enough to live off boxing, Joel loves the gruelling sessions his trainer puts him through at Richmond Boxing Club.
“Anything you can do to make it harder for me, the better,” he says.

Fight Review- Blacktown Rumble

Views: 27100ADD COMMENT 8 years ago

IMG_3099_copyA sense of mixed emotions lingered as I walked through the doors of Blacktown RSL. Blacktown – my former hometown, the place that consumed the best of my “Cosby” years. I wondered if I would run into anyone I know and sure enough I saw a few familiar faces, but now a little more timeworn since I’ve seen them last. They were here to see a young lad called Tyson, an amateur boxer with only a handful of fights under his belt. To my amazement this young lad stood over 6’ tall and had a frame of a panther. I had the privilege of watching this young boxer display his boxing skills and was entirely impressed. With the right training and guidance I think this young guy has a promising future in boxing. There were another 3 amateur fights that night, all of high standards. This was then followed by 6 pro fights, one of them vacant for the Lightweight Australian title. The opening pro fight was between Jody Gall Vs Ben Wrotniak. This was a good fight to get the punters into the mood.

Chernous spent the 2nd round regrouping himself and came out firing in the 3rd round regaining the momentum. At the end of the 3rd round, Omongos returned to his corner shaking his head and to everyone’s ama­zement quit on his stool. With this victory, Chernous claimed the NSW Welterweight Championship.
