Hot Bel­bin aims to keep streak go­ing

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT - KYLE WIS­NIEWSKI

TAS­MA­NIAN boxer Bo Bel­bin has had a stel­lar start to his pro box­ing ca­reer and the fa­ther of three is look­ing to make it con­tinue this Satur­day night against John McLaugh­lan.

In only two pro fights, Bel­bin has won both and been on the un­der­card for one of the big­gest up­sets in Aus­tralian box­ing in re­cent times, when he fought on the card for Jeff Horn and Michael Zer­afa in Au­gust. The 28-year-old, who in his younger years had a suc­cess­ful am­a­teur ca­reer win­ning 33 of his 38 fights, said fight­ing on such a big oc­ca­sion was a real eye-opener.

“The amount of peo­ple that were there and fight­ing in front of that crowd with that mag­ni­tude re­ally pushed my con­fi­dence up,” Bel­bin said. “It was some­thing I had dreamt of as a child and I was ex­tremely proud of my per­for­mance.”

Bel­bin’s last fight was a tech­ni­cal knock­out against Damian Lock and this time he will travel to Melbourne to take on tough Queens­lan­der McLaugh­lan, also un­de­feated from his first three pro fights.

GREAT START: Boxer Bo Bel­bin.
