Lays down the Law to Tom Tucker to take two from two at Bribie fight night
NOT an everyday occurrence for a girl to put the gloves on and jump in the boxing ring and fight for the pride of her town.
Last Saturday night Eidsvold’s 16-year-old Danni Bauer did just that at Bribie Island Boxing Club and really did do her town proud.
Danni said she didn’t know what to expect in her first fight but she knew that her opponent was in her early 30s and was very experienced in the ring.
“This is my first time in the boxing ring and I am nervous about what is going to happen,” Danni said. “I have been training hard and I think I will be okay,” she said.
Danni was matched against three0-year-old MeganWood from Underwood, a fairly competent boxer who when she stepped into the ring and was announced as just Megan.
“I was announced as the first female boxer from Eidsvold, having my first fight and I felt proud and nervous at the same time,” Danni said.
After three tough 1.5 minute rounds the girl from Underwood stood up as the winner and Danni Bauer had got through her first fight.

weights, novices and guys who just wanted to slug it out. Eidsvold’s youngest contender was nine-year-old CurtisWilliams and at 48.9kg he didn’t take up much space in the ring.
Curtis also came up against an experienced little boxer called Brodie Halliwell from Bribie Island who didn’t hold anything back and went on the defeat Curtis in three rounds.
Thomas McLachlan from Bribie Island then came up against Jarmbe Law from Eidsvold and Jarmbe was found out in a way that he did not expect. Thomas overpowered Jarmbe from the bell and hit him with everything he had. The first round went to the boy from Bribie and in the second it didn’t get any better for the boy from Eidsvold and the fight was stopped.
The experience that is gained by the young Eidsvold boxers is building confidence and mental strength.
Eidsvold’s only fighter coming out of the red corner, Darren Law made it two from two with a very dominate win over Bribie Island’s Tom Tucker.
The first round saw Law moving around the ring with Ali like movements, on his toes and a look on his face that gave away nothing.
With extremely fast hands Law hit Tucker with several blows to the face, chest and upper boby.
The boy from Bribie could not tag law with anything as he moved in and then away with catlike stealth.
Round two and three followed the same track and Law got more on top of his opponent the longer the fight went on.
Law said he was pumped before he stepped into the ring and wanted to get the win for Eidsvold.
“I feel comfortable in the ring and I have been training hard almost every day,” Law said.
“Tim Chapman is giving all the boys confidence and we are fighting for him,” he said Peter Jacobi from the Driftwood Café and Kiosk in Elliott Heads said the Eidsvold children deserve some support, so we have supplied all the Eidsvold boxers’ new boots, shorts and gloves.
“My wife Michelle and I will join the boxers on their journey and help them live out their dream,” Mr Jacobi said.
Coming off a big win in Rockhampton three weeks ago Jamal Kyle came up against a young Bribie boxer having his first fight.
Callum McIntosh showed plenty of aggression and overpowered the Eidsvold boy who learned a valuable lesson about what to expect if you shake up a bee’s nest.
Jamal came out confident in the first round and was holding his own until the start of the second when Callum unleashed a flurry of punches that turned Jamal around and sent him to a neutral corner for an eight count. The Eidsvold fighter ended the third round with plenty to be proud of and the decision could have gone either way. 1 from 2 and a great lesson learned and plenty of experience under his belt.
Tim Taipan Chapman has a fight himself in 2 weeks and we will be following the coach on his journey.
