Ris­ing stars post promis­ing vic­to­ries

Chris Brackin is quickly build­ing an im­pres­sive record as a pro­fes­sional boxer af­ter his lat­est suc­cess in Toowoomba.

Brackin made it two wins by stop­page from just two pro­fes­sional fights when he de­feated War­wick’s Kyle Teer (3-15-1) in the main event at the first Su­per Sun­day Se­ries at Smithy’s TGW Gym in New­town.

There were some fre­netic moments dur­ing the fight as Brackin went on the at­tack.

He built the pres­sure on Teer in the third round and the ref­eree stopped the fight two min­utes five sec­onds into the third round.

Brackin’s un­beaten record of two wins by stop­page could start to open some doors for the Darling Downs teenager.

That re­sult came af­ter Toowoomba’s Joel Stower (4-1-0) recorded a win by de­ci­sion over Olaf Olsen (4-4-1) in the other pro­fes­sional bout on the card for ris­ing stars.

Event pro­moter and trainer of Brackin and Stower, Bren­don Smith thought the re­sults were great for his charges.

He was also happy with the event, which also fea­tured am­a­teur and cor­po­rate bouts.

“I think great wins for the young blokes. They’re im­prov­ing ev­ery fight,” Smith said.

“This is what this whole se­ries is about, for the young guns, for them to grow. I think it was a great Sun­day and we’ll see more of them.

“This is what de­vel­ops the new stars for the big­ger fights, so for all of the am­a­teurs and our young pros to get to fight in front of their home town, it was great. It’s help­ing them prep for our big­ger shows.”

Team Vik­ing also took out the Vik­ing-Bar­bar­ian Cup 5-2 in the cor­po­rate bouts.
