Michael Katsidis v Josh King 11.03.17



World renown Lightweight boxer and former two time WBO Interim title holder Michael Katsidis returns to Boxing Australia on March 11 headlining TGW Smithy’s Promotion in Brisbane, Australia. Teamed up with long time trainer Brendan Smith has proved great success for Katsidis boxing career, always ready to take on the best earned them the grand opportunity of fighting Juan Manuel Marquez for the WBO and WBA Super Lightweight titles at the MGM Grand Las Vegas USA, November 2010.

Katsidis has been busted up, locked up and left broken hearted chasing world titles, one fight from eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, Katsidis was rocked by the sudden death of his brother Brisbane jockey Stathi Katsidis, one month before the biggest fight of his boxing career choosing to box on he dropped boxing icon Marquez in round three delivering the Mexican champion a shock knockdown. Not one to back down from a challenge Katsidis once again gave the fans a fight worth watching, trading heavy handed blows over nine rounds Marquez winning by a technical knockout retaining the WBO WBA titles and the right to a second bout against Manny Pacquiao in 2011.

Katsidis The Great’ 31.7.0 is a great representation of boxing in Australia, a tough pressure fighter he’s been in many bloodied world title battles, fighting his way through the lightweight division winning the Interim WBO World Lightweight title at the Wembley Arena London in Feb 2007 going on to defend the title in Nevada USA against Czar Amonsot. The fight critiqued for fight of the year, Katsidis winning a unanimous decision over twelve explosive rounds, two warriors testing their strength and skills in a jaw dropping battle with heavy fisted blows bringing the history of hard knocks back to boxing.

After a two year absence from the ring and speculation surrounding his health our title tooting world boomerang returns to Toowoomba, Queensland proudly representing TGW Smithy’s Promotions in a fight close to home honouring brother Brayd  ‘The Great White’ Smith and offering fellow state challenger Josh King 20.4.0 the opportunity to fight at top of the Australia Super Lightweight division. King returns after a fifteen month layoff, his last fight against Katsidis UK foe Ricky Burns in Nov 2015 suffering his second knockout loss in round eleven gaining risky boxing experience needed when chasing the world titles.

Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn, Brisbane Promotion 26.04.17



Manny Pacquiao is in Australia meeting the man Bob Arum from Top Rank Promotions chose for his next fight, no it’s not Amir Khan in Dubai, it’s undefeated Australian Welterweight Campion and World Boxing Organisation number two Jeff Horn in Queensland, Australia at Brisbane Suncorp Stadium July 2.

After months of negotiations Duco Events in conjunction with the Queensland government secured a fight with Philippines senator and eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao in one of the biggest stadiums Pacquiao has boxed at seating up to 55,000 people. Pacquiao has mentioned in his many interviews he wants the fans to be happy with the fight, styles make fights Horn being the perfect choice for Pacquiao at this stage of his boxing career.

Manny Pacquiao’s record reads like a bible, full of scripture and a journey taken by a holy man on a mission, an intimidating record of fifty-nine wins, eleven world titles in eight divisions, once a diamond in the rough fighting his way out of poverty today boxing royalty and elite world boxing entity. Promoted by Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, Muhammad Ali’s long-time promoter, a historian of 51 years in the business with a selective eye for fresh boxing prowess, something trainer and manager Glen Rushton has gauged since Horn walked in to his gym.

The name Jeff Horn is starting to turn heads in the world of boxing, how some may ask, through hard work, determination, guts and glory leaving no stone unturned in his preparation for the biggest fight of his career the WBO World Welterweight title against a man people give him little chance of beating. With fifteen professional wins on his record, the London Olympic athlete believes he has the skills to cause an upset against the experienced aggressive southpaw. 
 
Brisbane boxer Jeff Horn caught the attention of USA promoter Bob Arum Dec 2016 on the undercard of Joseph Parker and Andy Ruiz for the vacant WBO World Heavyweight title. Dean Lonergan of Duco Events, New Zealand set the platform and Horn delivered an astonishing round six knockout over two-time former welterweight champion Ali Funeka, a convincing win landing him the opportunity to fight world boxing legend Manny Pacquiao on home soil.

Shannon O'Connell v Marcela Acuna 17.06.17

Australia WBC Silver Super Bantamweight champion Shannon O'Connell lands in Argentina, fist ready, for the fight of a life time challenging Argentines number one and reigning Super Bantamweight champion Marcela Acuna at Caseros, Buerios Aires for the IBF World Super Bantamweight title on June 17. This is a fight not to be missed, International boxing queens Marcela Eliana Acuna and Shannon 'Shotgun' O'Connell two female boxers combative in their quest to fight the best, great ambassadors for women's boxing worldwide, professional athletes in one of the toughest sports fathered by the one and only, greatest of all time.

Argentine national boxing icon Marcela Acuna has a big following, veteran of the ring at forty years of age with an impressive record of forty-five wins, nineteen by knockout and current IBF Super Bantamweight champion. Confident with 20 years experience, dominating the division a well groomed fighter born to fight from a young age, Acuna is a black belt Tigress of Martial Arts putting her stamp on professional boxing in 1997 achievimg six world titles in two weight divisions, she's the pride of Argentina's boxing, proving age is only a number when it comes to a sport you are born to compete in. 

Australian Shannon O'Connell has a stamp of her own, signing to fight on foreign ground against a seasoned skilled opponent, a young gun boxer thats been tearing her way through the division hunting down world titles landing in Acunas backyard ready to rumble. O'Connell made the hard decision of missing out on fighting in one of Australia's biggest boxing events Battle of Brisbane WBO Welterweight title between Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn, estimated to be a crowd of 60,000, trading it in for her shot at the IBF super bantamweight title eyes firmly set on prying the prestigious title from the clutches of crowd favourite Marcela Eliana Acuna.

Shannon O'Connell is a great representation and inspiration fighting all that's been put before her, taking risks and making important decisions, twenty fights into her professional career with fifteen wins letting everyone know she is here and here to stay. Fighting the majority of her bouts away from home O'Connell stepped up in weight, two years after her professional debut in 2011 heading to South Korea for the WBA featherweight title. Unsuccessful and hungry it didn't take long for her to agree to the next opportunity to fight for the WBF featherweight title in South Africa, this time successful winning by knockout in the seventh round, both contests against undefeated opponents. Not one to shy away from the odds stacked up against her she accepted a fight with USA based fellow Australian champion and former WIBA world super featherweight champion Diana Prazak in 2014 suffering a techniacal knockout in round five.

"Shannon is one of the best fighters I've ever trained and probably one of the best fighters I ever will train. She's the complete package. She's got the mongrel, she's got the determination, she's got the toughness and she's got the skill to go with it to hit the top"

Words from the man by her side trainer Luke Meldon the man O'Connell trusts with her life inside the ring, a bond and trust essential when you have hit the top. Preparation for the fight has been disruptive with the passing of Shannon's grandfather two weeks before taking flight to Argentina, a fight that was originally penned for July 2 on the Pacquiao v Horn card but due to Acuna's reluctance to fight away from home and come Down Under, O'Connell is forced to fight the champion in the one sided fan based stadium, forever proud to represent her grass roots is sure to inspire the fire inside one of the most primed dedicated boxers of Australia.

Team O'Connell have a strong home base supported by Hosking Promotions, Fortitude Boxing and Duco Events a close team she calls family, a pure devoted boxer with superior resilience to be admired by all who know her work ethic and dedication to a sport she bleeds and lives for. Punching her way through battles in life and in the ring, never giving up led her to the shores of New Zealand winning a critical fight impressing Top Rank CEO and Manny Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum landing her in the position she's in today, guaranteed a crowd pleasing fight ready to give it her all and do what she takes great pride in.
