Prestige Sports Management's David Diecke seen on the right
and Keith Ellis continue their successful march up the ladder
of promoters ranks and leave little doubt that they have made
it in a tough game that does leave a trail of disappointed men
wondering why they didn't succeed.
Anyone that has tried it before and had no success should not
feel disappointed as there is a lot that is out of one's
control and can go wrong when organizing a fightnight.
Sometimes luck has to be on your side.
David's theory is to give the fans the best of classy
atmospheric feeling which in turn gives them a memorable buzz
that can be remembered.
PABA, OPBF, WBO ORIENTAL LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
12 rounds.Tim Bell vs Walter Papua
An awesome fight in matchmaking was in display which kept
supporters on the edge of their seats where a true fighter
made his mark against a very experienced, cagey, durable and
quick opponent in Walter Papua.
The fight started at a reasonable pace and accelerated into a
toe to toe match which
went the whole distance.
Bell was expected to tire Papua but this was a way away so he
kept grinding his way in
with varied leads AND huge lefts, over arm rights followed
body punches and uppercuts but
Papua kept well out of trouble by good mobility and used very
smart tactics which reserved his condition.
Papua had a great kit of punches and wasn't about to give the
fight away easily and in
turn countered leads by very dangerous looking bolo rights
followed by left round-arm
punches but Bell just seemed to absorb them recovering within
fractions of seconds.
Soon after mid-fight about the seventh round Bell started to
look more accurate in his landing of punches as Papua showed
slight indications of slowing down.
By the championship rounds Bell seemed to have the fight in
the bag unless stopped which was always a worry but unexpected
and didn't eventuate despite the effort made by Papua in the
last round to stop his opponent.
Timmy has now moved to No5 ranking in WBO World rankings, it
is expected that Bell will get a world title fight before
years end or early next year.
All in all this was a great fight which was undoubtedly high
grade and suitable for channel ten's 1HD first broadcast
nationwide from Melbourne.
scores were 116-112 119-108 117-111
ANBF Australian Super Middleweight Title
Local fighter Luke Moloney had a hard time keeping up with
Aussie champion Les Piper.
Due to Moloney's height and reach advantage Piper had to fight
at close quarters and accidental head clashes had to happen
which drew blood from Piper however not severe enough to stop
Piper's workrate was much higher than Luke's hence a points
win was the result.
scores were 99-91 98-93 99-92
Quality Fighter Jamie Pittman downclassed by local Frank
Due to severe unorthorthodox fighting by a very nervous
looking Ciampa, Pittman was forced to not show his brilliant
ability and copped injuries due to bad maneuverability of his
opponents head and style of clinching
Pittman was slam thrown to the canvas after placed in an
unbalanced position on two occasions and many times having to
be untangled from his opponent by the referee Tony Marretta,
However Pittman managed to win every round despite what he had
to put up with.
Some credit needs to be given to Ciampa for his gameness of
entering the ring in the first place but needs to be matched
with fighters in his own class for this situation not to be
repeated by the promoters.
scores were 60-54 60-54 60-54
Heta goes down to Meunier
Kim Heta got his count record against Andre Meunier reversed
being stopped at 1:55 min into the second round without a
chance to warm up. Andre put Kim down and placed him in a
stopping position by the referee Tony Marretta giving
the fight to Munier by TKO round two.
