Undefeated Englishman Josh "The Boss" Baillie, who now resides in Toowoomba and fights out of Smithy's Gym under Brendon Smith, is set to square off against fellow local boxer renowned for his toughness Kyle "Tank" Teer who is trained by Craig Monagle at Trading Blows in Toowoomba. The pair are set to meet in what is sure to be an all action affair on the undercard of "Smithy Brings the Big Fights 7" on July 4th at Rumours International in Toowoomba.
Baillie made his professional debut in impressive style with a round 1 TKO on the undercard of the last instalment of Smithy Brings the Big Fights in March. This follows an impressive amateur career in England. However he is set to now face the biggest test of his life against the "never say die" Teer.
"I'm looking forward to getting in there again, it's going to be Kyle Teer lands a right hand a good hard fight," said Josh Baillie.
"I respect Kyle, I know he is a very tough boxer who always comes to fight but I have had a great preparation and trained very hard for this."
Teer, who is a crowd favourite renowned for his all action wars and his involvement in the 2011 Fox Sports fight of the year is never in a dull fight and will be looking to bounce back after a cut caused the doctor to stop his QLD title fight back in October last year. His trainer Craig Monagle believes that the fight against Josh will be the perfect way to do it.
"If Josh thinks he has an easy one he better rethink because he has a tank coming at him on July 4" said Teer's trainer Craig Monagle.
