By Srithar Visuasam: This Friday night one of the feature night’s on the Victorian boxing calendar takes place at the Malvern Town Hall in Melbourne, Australia.
The event, hosted by promoter Peter Maniatis sees Ben Capps (11-3-2, 3 KOs) take on Mike Esgandari (6-1, 3 KOs) over 10 rounds for the WBC Asian Council Continental super welterweight title and the coveted Bob Rose Cup, named after Australian sporting legend Robert “Bob” Rose.
Esgandari heads into the bout fresh off his action packed victory over Alex Don in March to capture the vacant Victoria state middleweight title while Capps is looking to bounce back after a narrow split decision loss to Anthony Buttigieg last month for the Victoria state super welterweight title.
Two other title fights are set for tomorrow night with the heavy handed Manny Vlamis (13-3, 9 KOs) to do battle with Steven Ma (6-6-1, 2 KOs) for the vacant Victoria state light heavyweight title and Terry Tzouramanis (13-2-3, 3 KOs) to take on Lewis Goodrich (4-2) in what is expected to be a real tactical encounter.
Tickets are available at the door and start from $55.
