Olaf Olsen-Graham Blay Grudge Match on March 14

Three domestic matchups are set to round out the professional card of “Smithy Brings the big fights 6”.

The first will be a much anticipated rematch between Rosewood’s Olaf Olsen and Toowoomba’s Graham Blay. The pair first met at the fight day in Smithy’s Gym at the end of last year that saw the Brandon Wood trained Graham Blay snatch the decision in a close bout, handing Olsen his first professional defeat. There is no doubt Olsen will be out to avenge this loss on March 14. 

Toowoomba’s “Little Hitman” Cory Hess, trained by Craig Monagle, will make his return to the professional ring when he takes on Melbourne’s Robert Monnito. Hess, who was a stellar amateur, has only had one professional fight where he was narrowly defeated in Sydney by the local fighter. However he says he has learnt a lot from that experience and is ready to turn the tide when he faces the much more experienced Robert Monnito.

In a battle of the Toowoomba featherweights, Smithy’s Gym’s Sam “The Wounded Bull”
Williams will make his pro debut when he faces Fighting Fit’s Dave Smith. Williams, who is never afraid of a challenge, amateur record boasts a whose who of Australian amateur boxing but he now has his sights set on the pros. He will be giving up a lot of experience when he fights Dave Smith who has been in one some of Australia’s best professional boxers.

These three fights will round out what promoter Brendon Smith is calling the biggest night of fights Toowoomba has seen.

“This is a massive card and I am very happy to bring it to the people of Toowoomba,” said Smith. “All of these fights are fifty-fifty fights and a lot of these fights are worthy of a main event in their own right.”

These fights will take place on the undercard of “Smithy Brings the Big Fights 6” which will be headlined by the return of Michael Katsidis “The Great” vs tough Indonesian Eddy Comaro. The card will also see Filipino star and adopted Toowoomba boy Jack “The Assassin” Asis take on Indonesia’s Arief Bladder. As well as this undefeated local star and current WBC world youth featherweight champ “The Great White” Brayd Smith against dangerous Argentine Jose Saez and undefeated and current WBC youth world light heavyweight champion Damien “Super” Hooper up against fellow local and current Victorian light heavyweight champion “The Hitman” Josh Webb.

Undefeated local KO artist “The Fighting Fisherman” Kris George will put his “0” on the line against fellow undefeated boxer Ozan “Crash” Craddock for the Queensland Welterweight title.

Running champion and crowd favorite Tressa “T-rex” Lindenberg will also return to the ring.

Tickets to “Smithy Brings the Big fights 6” are on sale now from Smithy’s Gym where prices start at $55 for general $75 for ringside B and $95 for ringside A.
