Next date to look forward to is 18th March exactly 11 days after Daniel Geale's Mandatory defense against Osumanu Adams in Hobart.

Alex the Lionheart Leapai is ready to take a bigger step on the world heavyweight scene fighting a man that went 12 rounds with Vitali Klitschko WBC champion. Noel and his team have nailed an exciting fight for all to see, bringing in Kingpin Kevin Johnson America's No14 top heavyweight.

Team Leapai know the job that is in front of them and are tackeling it like kings, flying Demetrice King in for top grade sparring. Demetrice has been in the ring with Johnson in 2006 and went ten rounds with Tua in March last year, Tua won on points.

Alex is looking at fighting internationally in his next fight if all goes well on Sunday 18th so if you want to see a hard hitting night of boxing come on down  :)

Aussie IBF Middleweight world champion Daniel Geale defends his title tonight on Tassie home soil...No.1 Ghana middleweight challenger Osumanu Adama 20.2.0 won by TKO in round 9 against Roman Karmazin in October last year the same opponent Geale went 12 rounds with in October 2010. Geale is a class above' Osumanu, an eager boxer chases a title within his reach but held by a man determined to do Australia, his team The Grange and his family proud.

2 other IBF titles up for grabs - Featherweights Billy Dib 33.1.0 v Eduardo Escobedo 32.3.0 and Kali Meehan v Travis Walker defend their titles on the undercard.

Stop your motors running  :o


Kevin Johnson delays fight with Alex Leapai until April 1st due to a flu 'it better be a nasty bloody flu, what are you a man or a mouse!

Thornberry promotions are out of pocket but still very determined to get Johnson over here and get it ON  :)

Australia No1 Alex Leapai v USA No15 Kevin Johnson...

Australia's number one Heavyweight champion Alex Leapai  is scheduled to fight American Kevin Johnson in a battle between two KO Kings.  Undefeated in his last 17 fights Leapai is about to embark on a new level of boxing challenging Kevin Johnson, Johnson has 25 wins with one loss to WBC Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in December 2009 by twelfth round decision. Competing for a shot at the worlds best heavyweight Leapai is on track to accomplishing what he set out to do 7 years ago.

“ It was after I fought cruiserweight champion Nermin Sabanovic when former WBA Middleweight champion Maselino Masoe watched the fight told me I should have a chat with Noel Thornberry who was the manager of Maselino at the time. Maselino gave me some great advise and I'll never put it down because Noel has got me to where I am today”

A life long opportunity was delivered to Alex in May 2005, Maselino graced Alex with a few brotherly words 'Get in touch with Noel' he has never looked back. Through hard work, determination, love  family and faith Alex has climbed the heavyweight ranks and now defends  the IBF Australasian title against experienced heavyweight Kevin Johnson. Alex has worked his way through the Australian heavyweight division prepared and ready with a team full of pride, a man on a mission and victorious in the ring against Australia's best heavyweights he now looks outside for  world contenders to test him on his journey of boxing the worlds best. Sparring has been difficult for team Leapai when you're at the top quality sparring is no easy feat - Michael Edwards, Solomon Haumono, Anthony McCracken, Pieter Cronje are a few ready to spar with Leapai.

Leapai has gained boxing experience needed to box at the top, power in both hands that deliver a combination of punishing blows knocking out twenty of thirty-one challengers, six by brutal round one KO. His left is a thud, the right uppercut is an impressive and powerful punch that's dropped many experienced challengers add the hunger to achieve these are  boxing skills not to take too lightly when entering the ring with Alex 'Lionheart' Leapai. He is a patient and pressure fighter that will favour him over the cautious callous boxer in Johnson, Johnson's counter defensive work rate will need to be A grade to defeat a relentless boxer like Leapai that's given height and reach advantage away and in the majority of his fights. Johnson has never been knocked out with one loss, one draw and twenty-five wins to his name the preferred test at the right time for team Leapai. Leapai focused and headstrong knows the time is right to deliver, with over ten years boxing experience, patience and a combination of breath taking heavy fisted blows these are the credentials needed for Australia's number one heavyweight to achieve his goal and challenge the worlds best.                                 

April the 1st at Doomben racecourse will entertain die hard & excite fans, please officials and many interested in the world heavyweight division. Boxing is a business but with every business you need hard workers for it to succeed, blend the two and you have a team aiming high to achieve their best. Time, money and patience is unpredictable and sometimes a pretentious part of world boxing, put trust in your team and management and you have the necessary business and backbone - Thornberry Promotions are the backbone supporting  Leapai in his destiny to fight worlds number one heavyweight.

Thornberry promotions have been running for over 25 years in Australia, taking two of Australia's world champion's to international title's. Ricky Thornberry lost to WBO super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe by points in the UK in 1999 and Maselino Masoe  challenged German Felix Sturm in 2006 for the WBA middleweight title both fights going the distance. Noel Thornberry has the knowledge, approach and experience in training boxers to get a shot at the top, Alex is on his way.

Sunday Bloody Sunday was full of Blood, Sweat & Tears.



Doomben racecourse opened the gates to a rowdy bunch of boxing fans ready to watch Australian heavyweight champion Alex Leapai defend the IBF Australasian heavyweight title against USA challenger Kevin Johnson. Noel Thornberry and Stephen Deller put together a good card outdoors providing guests and officials an open boxing venue with a view and atmosphere people in world boxing appreciate.

Pre main event, the crowd was treated to a light middleweight debut fight, Cane Cassels winning his first professional fight against Matthew Seden. Super middleweights Glen Fitzpatrick finished his boxing career with a draw against Marlon Toby, retiring a happy man and a cheerful goodbye from the crowd.

Dean Miller showed Edwin Samy who the superior boxer was winning the vacant Queensland Super middleweight title, in the lighter weight division Todd Kidd outboxed Joel Cruz who stopped the bout short charging at Kidd causing a head clash and cutting Kidd’s forehead in round four, final score 30/27 30/27 30/27.

Main Event…Alex walks back to his corner at the end of round 6 “Fuck”
Alex came out focused strong in the first round landing a combination of solid blows, pressure and hunger to achieve his best Alex tied Johnson on the ropes with a blend of thudding punches in the second. Third round Johnson connected with his jab and started to gain some distance ending the round with a left hook. Fourth round Johnson used his defence and jabbed with confidence using his right, left jab hitting the body, Alex retaliates left to the body and right up top. Rounds 5 & 6 Johnsons jab breaks through Alex’s defence landing powerful direct blows troubling Alex. 7 & 8 Johnson is on top of his game, controlling the fight with his jab and experience. Round 9 the lion is gone his heart fights on but Johnson’s clean solid punches to the body and head have made their mark and the fight is stopped after a flurry of punishing blows. Round 9 TKO victory to Kevin Johnson.

Time to thank Noel Thornberry, Alex Leapai and Tracey Griffith for helping KMA Boxing Australia cover boxing in Australia. The fight on Sunday between Alex & Johnson was a great day and now that I have seen a world title live I want more time to experience and write about our top world challengers. Well done to Alex for boxing above his trained level, looking forward to watching him box and train his way back to the top.
