The weigh in for Professional Boxing Australia #1 will take place at 5:30pm on Friday afternoon at North Sydney Leagues Club with current WBA Heavyweight Number 1 Challenger Lucas Browne overseeing proceedings.
The first event by PBA is set to be one of the strongest cards on the calendar with the inclusion of Victoria’s Jake Carr who is returning to the ring for the first time since vacating the Super Middleweight Title. Carr faces the former OPBF Champion Togasilimai Letoa who has shared the ring with some of Australia’s best including Blake Caparello, Garth Wood, Damien Hooper, Rohan Murdock and is sure to be a handful.
This match up will be the perfect introduction into the two Australian Title bouts featuring local boy and current Australian Light Heavyweight champion Kerry Foley who faces Queensland’s Joel Casey. While fellow Queenslander Faris Chevalier goes up against Victoria’s Tej Pratap Singh to battle for the recently vacated Australian Super Middleweight Title. Everything is on the line for these two fighters and they are sure to throw down in what is expected to be an absolute war.
While in the welterweight division, the son of former Australian champion Mark Bargero, Dillon, enters the ring in his second professional fight coming off a tough loss to experienced MMA fighter Alex Volkanovski. Bargero faces yet another test against Brit Ben Saava who many believe has the talent to go all the way.
The PBA has also announced that former world champion Daniel Geale will be joining the star studded commentary team headed up by Ben Damon, Nigel Benn and Kali Meehan. The night will also feature a panel Q and A show with some of the best Super Middleweight and heavyweight fighters in Australia such as Sakio Bika, Nadar Hamden, Peter Graham, Geale and Meehan.
