Australian Fightback

When it comes to the world of boxing nothing is harder than fighting away from your home. Often the only way you will gain a decision is if you knock your opponent out.

Sadly in recent weeks three Australian boxers have fought in the United States but have ended being the ones to lose by knockout.

The WBC super middleweight champion, Sakio Bika, has told the media in America that he will be the one to stop the rot. He insists he’ll defeat American, Anthony Dirrell, this Saturday.

Bika and Dirrell will grace the ring for a second time, after fighting to an exciting and competitive draw last December .

“I’m going to change a lot of my style for this fight. I’m going to prove I’m better than Anthony, and this time it’ll be by a clear victory. I’ve worked so hard every day to get to where I am, and now I am a WBC champion. I have no doubt I’ll keep my belt,” Bika is quoted as saying. “Lately, Australian boxers have been defeated, but I’ll end this losing streak on Saturday. I don’t care that the fight is in California. I’ve proved I can win anywhere, and this time will be no exception.”

Another Australian looking to arrest the run of defeats is Kalgoorlie boy Daniel “The Rock” Dawson, who was on the show last night, and who has a WBA light middleweight title eliminator on August 22nd against Austin ‘No Doubt’ Trout.
