Jarrod Fletcher Targets Showdown With Les Sherrington

Brisbane based middleweight and WBA World randed # 4 Jarrod ‘Left Jab’ Fletcher has set his sights on fellow Queenslander Les Sherrington. Fletcher, who is coming off an impressive 6th round TKO victory over Ghana’s Phillip Kotey, believes a match up with WBO ranked # 8 and WBF world champion Les Sherrington is the perfect next step in his career and it is what the fight fans of Australia want.

“This is something I have wanted myself and I’m sure the public of Australia has wanted for a while now. This fight would be massive for Queensland boxing.” said Fletcher.

“We are both world rated in different sanctioning bodies and he also holds the WBF world title, we both have great records both have great victories some pretty good opponents.”

“Over the last week we’ve had a few other boxers mention in the media that they want to fight me, so I want everyone to know that I’ll fight anyone my management put in front of me. Anyone. But I’d love that person to be Les !! Boxing is a spectator sport so let’s give the fight fans of this country and this great state of Queensland what they want to see.”

Fletcher’s trainer Steve Deller says that this is a fight his team have been looking at for a while and now is the perfect time for both camps to make it happen. “We have had our eye on Sherrington for some time now,” said Deller.

“There is no need to go overseas when we have an opponent of this quality right in our backyard. The boys have done plenty of sparring together and have had some wars, but Jarrod is the better fighter and we want to prove it.”

“That is one of the reasons we fought Randy Suico. Suico’s previous fight was with Les and our camp wanted to prove that Jarrod could go out there and get the job done better, which he did stopping him in the fifth, it took Les eight rounds. We know Les has a fight coming up on June 7 in Toowoomba. I will be sitting ringside at that fight supporting Les because we need him to win to make this fight.”

Not only would a match-up between these two world rated Queenslanders be great for Australian boxing but with the way these two are moving up the ladder could spell an all Queensland world title fight.
