Herman Ene-Purcell Faces Olaf Olsen on October 5th

A fresh wave of local heavyweight boxers will round out what is already set to be an action packed night of fights on the “Smithy Brings the big fights 5” card on October 4 at Rumours International.

Herman Ene-Purcell who trains out of Smithy’s Gym, will make his professional debut when he takes on Rosewoods Olaf Olsen. Herman, who was a talented Rugby League player for the u20 Toowoomba Clydesdales, is ready to take on new challenges in the boxing ring. However Rosewood’s Olaf Olsen will be looking to wreck any plans Herman has believing he has what it takes to send the 18 year old back to the football field when they meet in what is sure to be an explosive 3 round heavyweight fight.

In another local match up Shane Cadd trained by Brandon Wood of Big Hit Boxing out of Smithy’s Gym will take on Jeremy Hardy who is trained by Mick Shaw at Fighting Fit gym. With both boxers having similar experience and plenty of pride on the line inside the ring, there will be no love lost in their 3 round contest.

Finally, Croatian born and bred Dejan Roso trained by Leon Spain will take on another Rugby League player turned boxer, Ben Loxley. Loxley, who is trained by Craig Monagle of Trading Blows boxing has a reputation of heavy hands, but he can expect the un expected when he squares off with the tough Roso.

Promoter Brendon Smith is excited at the wave of heavy weights to the darling downs.

“We have an influx of heavy weight boxers on the darling downs, with both local boys and overseas fighters now residing here wanting to take to the ring,” Smith said.

“It’s great we have always bought the big fights, now we can bring the big men to the big fights.”

Smith also believes that this card featuring a regional title, a world youth title and three state titles is among one of his biggest.

“We have five titles in one night” said Smith.

“I believe that this is the biggest card we have done in Toowoomba. Each fight will be a 50/50 fight and we can expect that each boxer will grow and extra arm and a leg to try and take those belts home.

The card is as follows

• WBC Asia Continental super featherweight title Jack Asis vs Hirohito Fukuhara
• WBC World Youth Silver featherweight title Brayd Smith vs Gabriel Altarejos
• Qld Jnr Welterweight title Darren Askew vs Mark Ramirez
• Qld Featherweight title Will Young vs Matt Seden
• Qld Lightweight title Kyle Teer vs Kane Cassells
• Qld Corporate title Tressa Lindenberg vs Vicky Gilbert
