Olympians back in title action next month

HATTON PROMOTIONS’ Olympic sensations Cameron Hammond and Damien Hooper will look to continue their climb to the top when they return to action next month.
The highly-rated Aussies appear on an action-packed card at the Sleeman Sports Complex in Chandler, Queensland on November 8 and are hoping for extend their unbeaten records.
Light-heavyweight Hooper will attempt to more to 10-0 as he defends his WBC EPBC title against dangerous Sydney-based Ghanaian Joseph Kwadjo, while Hammond will compete for the vacant WBC/EPBC belt and in the same time put on the line his WBA Oceania welterweight crown against the experienced Romeo Jakosalem.

“I’m very much looking forward to seeing Cameron and Damien in action again because they’re not just two of the best upcoming fighters in Australia, they’re two of the best upcoming fighters on the planet,” said former two-weight world champion and promoter Ricky Hatton.
“It’s less than two years since Cameron turned over and barely 18 months since Damien had his first pro fight so for them to have already won so many titles and be boxing in ten rounders so soon shows how confident we are about their potential.
“Other boxers from the Olympics are still doing four and six round fights. My lads are ahead of those, with Cameron already in the WBA top 15 at welterweight.
“Obviously there’s no rush as they’re young and developing, but I think it’s only a matter of time before they’re in those big fight that Aussies fans crave.”
The November 8 bill is entitled ‘A Night to Remember III’ and also features Paddy Murphy’s Australian welterweight title clash with Rivan Cesaire as well as a host of other top class matches.
