Bell wins Australian title from Bargero

Tiger Tim Bell is the new Australian light-heavyweight champion after winning a unanimous 10-round decision over veteran Marc Bargero at Melbourne’s Dallas Brooks Hall.

Bell, whose father died in a horse-riding accident in 1993 when Tim was 14, left school during Year 9 to become a carpenter so he could feed his mother and two brothers.
He turned professional in 2001 but had only mixed success and last year lost to both Sean Connell and Heath Stenton.

But his win over Bargero was a dream come true as he lifted his record to 12-5-1 (11 KOs).

On the same card Costa Chondros stopped James Ellis in six for the Australian supercruiserweight title.
Wwelterweight Matthew Paulley outpointed Shannon McMahon over six and Jonny Walker stopped Bruce Glozier in three.
