Default Good up and coming Aussie fighters

Hey,

I'm in need of some education in terms of some up and coming guys to watch out for in Oz. Not the people already hitting the world scene, but it would be great to hear something of some guys who you reckon that can make it.

Bonus points if they are fighting at any point soon in NSW so I can go for a watch.

Too much stuff about a certain guy who shall remain nameless on the forum recently. Would be good to talk about Oz boxing in a more positive light.

So ESB, educate me!

Adam Forsyth (Perth) Heavy

Not sure were he is next

Michael Hatwell (Perth) Welter
Not sure were he is next either but Perth(WA) is pumping out some talent over there.

Kerry Foley (NSW) Light Heavy
Foley could be good with time being only 20 years old.


Obviously
Lenny Zappa (NSW)
He has the best chance i think being young if we dont rush him.


Davey Browne (NSW)
He is becoming more well known now though. Davey might turn out to be like a Robbie Peden type guy i feel.

And the best out of my State i feel is.

Dan Iannazzo (VIC)

Fights on the 6th Dec at Reservior (Melbourne) for the IBF Youth Pan Pac Belt
against (Rajanondh 17-9 )

If you can Sai watch out for Dan i feel he might win a decent belt or at least get a title shot one day.

He is only 20 years old (9-0) 1 KO which doesnt worry me but for a Super bantam is huge being nearly 5-8.

When i saw Steve Casserly debut on fox last year i thought he looked like he had potential, a quick look on boxrec shows he's only had the 1 fight since but is fighting on the Zappa/Browne undercard.

What do you guys think of Casserly ?

Hi all i'm new on here, Ive followed the amateurs and was just wondering does anyone know what happened to a young light welterweight from queensland his name was tommy i think he is hungarian and also a young guy by the name of brendon wilson I think they would suite the pro style of fighting. Does anyone know if they are still fighting.

I rate Dan Iannazzo as well. Very flashy, quite quick, a good prospect. Nice list there Boppa.

Davey Brown is taking off the floaties and jumping in with Billy Dib in march next year.

Will Tomlinson is one to keep an eye on. I think he has had two pro fights but is a ready made pro.

We've got a super middle weight in VICTORIA called SERGE YANNICK who has potential. He's mid 20's, ex Cameroon and has 3 from 3, including a first up win over Wayne Parker Jnr!

Sounds like he's struggling to get match-ups at the moment. Probably beating Parker Jnr first up is scaring some away.

The guy who everyone should watch is King Davidson.

Easily the most feared man in the country.

Waiting for him to fight is like waiting for a solar eclipse.

He is more style than substance from what I have seen. Whether it's injuries or something else, he is moving along slowly.

Waiting for a solar eclipse.

He is 1 tough guy to match & not many people are interested in facing him, but he has been quite inactive too not always his own fault.

Yeah that is a fight i have been hearing about at Featherweight.
Would be a defense of his WBC Youth Title.
