“I’m very excited to stage my first amateur show back here on the Darling Downs and to have such great match ups and a 15 fight solid card with state and Australian champions from fly weight to heavy weight as well as give our new starters the opportunity to box in their hometown. We have worked hard to make this a family affair with no alcohol and a great code of conduct,” said trainer and promoter Brendon Smith.

“I’d like to thank Geiger Civil and Electrical for their support of the show and trophy donations as well as all the other local businesses who have donated trophy’s. I’d also like to thank all trainer’s and clubs for their support of our first event and of course the Smithy’s Gym team for all their hard work. Finally I would also like to thank our local media, The Chronicle Toowoomba and WIN news for their coverage leading up to the event”.
