Default What is the record for Aussie title fight?

Hey Fellas

wanted to find out what is the record for least fights as a pro to win a Aussie title?
Brad pocket rocket Hore is fighting for the Aussie Bantem weight title in his 3rd pro fight.
BOXING: Brad Hore acknowledges he is taking a risk by accepting the opportunity to fight for an Australian title next month, but says he does not have the luxury of time.
The 31-year-old will have the biggest fight of his burgeoning professional career when he takes on Roberto Lerio for the Australian bantamweight title at Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds on April 20.
Since making his professional debut in July last year after a two-year hiatus, the Caloundra fighter has been steadily ticking the boxes.
Ever since returning to the ring, the two-time Olympian has had a path mapped out - from state to national to regional to world titles.
He was set to fight for the Queensland title against Tommy Clarke tonight, but his opponent broke his hand in training. That fight will go ahead later in the year regardless of Hore's success against Lerio.
Lerio has a professional record of 14 wins, 17 losses and one draw and is far more experienced than Hore's two previous opponents, David Smith (2-9) and Petchumpon Kietbanditgym (0-1).
Despite the risks, Hore said it took him little time to accept the bout.
Given his age, he said he did not have the luxury of being able to pad out his record and build himself up against a series of inexperienced opponents.
"I'm taking my chances, but this is a big chance for me," he said.
"This fight (tonight's abandoned bout) was only supposed to be my warm-up for my state title fight in May, but I jumped at the opportunity (to fight for a national title)."
The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds, also a step up. In preparation, Hore has been training two times a day, six days a week, including three sessions with strength-and-conditioning coach Kurt Vogel.
The April 20 card will be co-promoted by former English world champion Ricky Hatton and broadcast into eight million homes via the Eurosport television network.

Jack Russell won the national light flyweight title in his 2nd fight, and by his 6th fight had won 4 national titles, all at different weights.

Fairly safe to say.

But then again, there are so few campaigning at the lower weights you never know.

Just proves Australian boxing is a farce when fighters are not only winning national titles in their second pro fight, but actually challenging for them.
