Katsidis-Earl 2: Darren Askew To Face Eddy Comaro

"The Cumbrian Cyclone" Darren Askew is ready to test himself against tough Indonesian Eddy Comaro on the under card of "Smithy Brings the big fights 7" on July 4 at Rumours International, Toowoomba.

Askew, the current Queensland junior welterweight champion and Victorian junior middleweight champion, who hails from Cumbria, England, has been on a good run of late having won his last four fights straight since moving to Toowoomba and joining trainer Brendon Smith. Comaro, who is well known to Toowoomba boxing fans after losing a tough TKO to Michael Katsidis in March, will mark the toughest test Askew has had to date. This has not deterred Askew though who said he is excited to make a statement.

"I'm really excited to be fighting a fighter with such experience and it's great he has names on his record like Michael Katsidis and Paul Flemming" said Askew.

"He's a fighters fighter like myself, willing to fight anyone anywhere. Expect fireworks, I'm training hard and looking to make a statement."

Comaro, who has a wealth of experience after fighting all over the world, will be looking to make amends for his last trip to Australia after losing a tough fight to former two time world champion Michael Katsidis. It is for this reason Brendon Smith says they are preparing for the best Eddy Comaro.

"Eddy Comaro is a very experienced and tough fighter and this is a great step up for Darren," said Smith.

"We know Eddy will be training hard to make amends in the eyes of Australian fans however I feel that Darren is up to the task. Darren is a beautiful boxer and his power is improving every day, I think this fight will bring out the best in him."

 This fight will take place on the undercard of "Smithy Brings the Big Fights 7" at Rumours International in Toowoomba. Headlining the fight night will be the long awaited rematch of  former two time world champion Michael Katsids "The Great" against England's Graham "Duke of" Earl for the WBU world junior welterweight championship. Also on the card will be undefeated featherweight prospect "The Great White" Brayd Smith as he defends his WBC featherweight world youth silver title. The man who knocked down NSW captain Paul Gallen, "The Herminator" Herman Ene-Purcell will return to the ring along with Filipino star Jack Asis, "Iron" Will Young, English import Josh Baillie, Kyle "Tank" Teer and Tressa "T-Rex" Lindenberg.

Tickets are on sale now at Smithy's Gym. The prices are the same as the previous event at $95 for Ringside A, $75 for Ringside B and $55 for General.
