Toowoomba’s own “Iron” Will Young is all set to face Townsville’s Derek Webber as part of the “Smithy Brings the Big Fights 3” card on March 8 in Toowoomba.
Young who will be contesting his third professional fight is fast growing a reputation as one of Australia’s most exciting and crowd pleasing fighters. With constant pressure and an all action style, Young will need to bring his A game to deal with Derek Webber.
“I am very happy to add yet another exciting and even match up to the card” said promoter Brendon Smith.
“Will is an exciting fighter with a good following and we are all looking forward to seeing him back in the ring, however once again he has a tough fight and he needs to be 100% if he wants to win.”
Webber, who has only had one professional boxing fight, is a well accomplished Muay Thai fighter.
“The majority of my experience comes from muay thai” said Webber.
“However, as a developing pro boxer the best way forward for me is to continue to have great match ups like this. March 8 is my focus and there is a lot of hard training to come.”
