State’s top pugilists to square off

Mercury (Hobart) - - NRL, BOXING -

THE Tas­ma­nian Box­ing League’s best ama­teur fight­ers will con­test the state cham­pi­onships at the Grange Func­tion and Meet­ing Cen­tre, at Camp­bell Town, on Satur­day.

TBL pres­i­dent Adrian Lovell said box­ers from around Tas­ma­nia would con­verge to take part in a packed card, with 15 bouts and all fight­ers chas­ing gold in their re­spec­tive weight di­vi­sions.

“The semi-main event will fea­ture Glenn McKe­own from Al­pha Box­ing Club against Dy­lan Snooks from the Glenorchy Box­ing Club in the 71kg di­vi­sion,” Lovell said. “Both are highly re­garded by the TBLI in this weight di­vi­sion.”

Glenorchy’s Thomas Barker will take on Launce­s­ton’s Alex Speed in a grudge match in the 75kg di­vi­sion.

“These guys have been call­ing each other out for some time now and what bet­ter way for this bout to take place than at the state ti­tles,” Lovell said.

“These two fights will be high­lights of the pro­gram and will have ev­ery­one out of their seats.”

Ac­tion starts at 12.30pm.
