Re: Wesern Alliance 23rd July (Dawson/Bryant/Letizia PABA)
By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing
WBA #10 middleweight Robbie Bryant (14-1-1, 7 KOs) will clash with former Australian super middleweight champion Les Piper (13-8-3, 3 KOs) over twelve rounds at the Italian Club in Perth, Western Australia on July 23 with the IBF Australasian title up for grabs. Promoter Ty Colman said, “Robbie Bryant has shown world class skills in recent fights but Les Piper comes to the ring with excellent credentials.” Colman continued, “There are several world class middleweights in Australia including Sam Soliman and Garth Wood with Daniel Geale recently capturing the IBF world title in Germany. Robbie boxed Daniel as an amateur and had him on the canvas before losing a close decision.” Colman concluded, “Team Bryant is interested in boxing the best middleweights in Australia including world IBF champion Daniel Geale but would also consider a world title opportunity against WBA champion Felix Sturm.”
Also in action will be former WBO light middleweight challenger Daniel Dawson (36-3, 24 KOs) who will slug it out with Virgil Kalakoda (25-6-2, 16 KOs) over twelve rounds for the interim PABA title. Dawson lost a WBO challenge to Serhiy Dzinziruk in ten rounds in 2010 and dropped a twelve round decision to IBF world champion Daniel Geale in 2007. Dawson stopped former world amateur champion Anton Solopov by KO in round one in 2007.
On the undercard bout, classy light heavyweight David Letizia (8-2-1, 3 KOs) will be in action against Taito Raturere (8-0, 3 KOs) of New Zealand for the Interim PABA title.
