“I don’t have to travel anymore, I can fight in the comfort of my own backyard in NSW. I’m looking forward to putting on a good show and I’ll let my hands do the talking.”
The night will also feature a second youngster, Earlwood’s Ethan Roberts, 14, who will be making his amateur boxing debut.
Definitely set to impress, Ethan is also a talented footballer and recently made the Under 14s Roosters Development Squad.
