Billel Dib Targets Andrew Cancio WBA Title Shot

Rising Australian Super Featherweight star Billel Dib is ready to make 2019 his breakout year, as he gets his year underway against Rey Juntilla at the Seagulls Rugby League Club, Tweets Head, on March 30.

Dib avenged a defeat last time out against fellow rising star Bruno Vifuaviwili, a fighter who has just defeated one time Australian Olympic representative Joel Brunker, with Dib winning the WBA Oceania title in the process. Dib now turns his attention to Juntilla on March 30 and discussed his camp and his plans for 2019.

Dib said, “Camp has gone absolutely perfectly under the guidance of Angelo, Tony and Craig. Training alongside the likes of the Moloney twins pushes me every day to improve. We say ‘iron sharpens iron’ and that mentality is getting me towards my goal which is to become a world champion.”


Dib continued, opening up on his plans for 2019, “I want to become a world champion so bad and I believe I am at the right stage of my career for this to happen. I want to fight Andrew Cancio for the WBA World Super Featherweight title and that is a fight I believe I will win and win well.”

The interim challenge prior to any potential title fights is Rey Juntilla at the Seagulls Rugby League Club and the highly rated Sydney native gave his take on what fight fans can expect from him on March 30.

The Sydney Super Featherweight stated, “I should have boxed for the world title last year and as far as I’m concerned this is just an obstacle on my route to the world title.

“I’m improving all the time in the gym and I believe that will reflect in my next performance, which will be an explosive performance that everybody will enjoy watching, and I will also prove that I am at the top level and ready for world titles.”
