Brayd Smith To Face Yong Sathong on July 28th Card

Another highly anticipated fight between rising Aussie star “The Great White” Brayd Smith and the very experienced Yong Sathong from Thailand has been added to the undercard of Les “Lock N Load” Sherrington vs. “Yori Boy” Campas on the “Resurrection” fight night on July 28th.

In just his fourth fight as a professional with the previous 3 fights all being wins by way of knockout, the third year law student Brayd Smith, will be facing the biggest test of his short career when he steps into the ring with Sathong, who will be fighting for the 35th time, boasting a record of 20 wins and 12 by knockout.

Sathong has fought all over the world in places like Japan, Russia, Spain and the Philippines. He has also fought for multiple WBO Oriental titles and a WBC Asian Council title and posses a wealth of boxing experience he will be no doubt look to use against his young Australian opponent.

Smith, the former Australian Golden Gloves champion, is no stranger to fighting more experienced boxers though, having only recently scored a second round KO over former Australian Champion Quinton Donaghue.

“I’m really looking forward to the challenge,” said Smith. “I definitely learnt a lot when I fought Quinton. I love the challenge of fighting the more experienced fighters and being able to learn from them. This is a big step up for me and it is going to be a great fight.”

His trainer also believes this will be Brayd’s biggest test to date.

“Undoubtedly this is a big step up for Brayd. There is going to be a huge learning curve for him and he is going to have to be on his game on the night, as this man is coming to Australia thinking he can win,” said trainer Brendon Smith.

This fight adds to what is shaping up to be a sensational undercard on the “Resurrection” fight night with the fight between Irish superstar Dennis Hogan and tough Philippine Arnel Tinampay announced for the card last week, with more to come this week.

The main event is the much anticipated world title clash between Les “Lock N Load” Sherrington and Mexican knockout king “Yori Boy” Campas who boasts 79 knockouts from 100 wins.

The fights will take place on July 28 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition center and tickets are available now at ticketek.com.au at just $20 for children and $37 dollars for adults.
