A Queen­stown wrestler will fight his student for the na­tional heavy­weight ti­tle on Satur­day.

Student JK Moody, of In­ver­cargill, is the de­fend­ing the SPW New Zealand Heavy­weight Cham­pi­onship against his for­mer Queen­stown trainer ‘Hooli­gan’ Mar­cus Kool.

Kool said as a lo­cal wrestler he would have a strong crowd and others could find that in­tim­i­dat­ing.

‘‘The crowd gets rowdy.

‘‘They can throw a lot of guys [wrestlers] off with their chants - they are a lot of fun.’’

Kool was de­ter­mined to win and said he could bet­ter last year’s fi­nale, where he jumped off a bal­cony at the Queen­stown Me­mo­rial Cen­tre.

‘‘I still lost last time, I def­i­nitely need to win now and do what it takes.’’

Two Aus­tralian ath­letes are sched­uled to com­pete on the night also. New Zealand’s top tag team would also be de­cided on the night, with one tag team match lined up.

❚ Doors for the event at the Queen­stown Me­mo­rial Cen­tre on Satur­day will open at 6pm and $20 tick­ets are on sale on eventfinda.
