Two titles on the line at Boxing in the Bush

Moree Boxing Academy is preparing to host its second Boxing in the Bush fight night for the year, with 12 exciting bouts set to thrill the local crowd in a little more than a week.

There will be fighters featuring from both Moree and across the state including Coffs Harbour, Dubbo, Newcastle, Bathurst and Lightning Ridge.

"We have had some big fight nights over the years," Moree Boxing Academy president Danny Cheetham said.

"This could be as good as any show we've put on."

The night will be headlined by a fight for the Northwest Super Middleweight Title between Moree's James Duncan and Coffs Harbour's Matt Watt.

"James is a former junior champion who is making a return to the ring after six years of playing football," Cheetham said.

"Matt Watt is a very accomplished boxer."

Another major bout on the night is Moree's Zack Crouch going up against tough Newcastle fighter Levi Kearny, with the winner to walk away with the NSW Featherweight Title.

"Another bout creating a lot of interest is captain coach of the Moree Boars Stanley Swan, who takes on a tough shearer from Dubbo by the name of Adam Darlington," Cheetham said.

"Anyone who's been to our previous shows knows that Stan is an all action fighter.

"We expect these two to stand toe-to-toe in the ring and let the bombs go."

The night will also feature two female bouts, involving Moree pair Katie Defraine and Alisha Briggs who will be taking on fighters from Coffs Harbour and Gunnedah.

There is also plenty of exciting action on the undercard to hype the crowd up before the main events take centre stage.

Tickets to the night are on sale now and can be purchased from the Moree Services Club at just $40 for general admission and $20 for aged pension and patrons aged 17 years old and under. Tickets will also be available for purchase on the night.

Cheetham is encouraging everyone to come down to take a look and see all the local talent Moree has to offer.

"The Moree boxers have been training really hard to do well in front of their home crowd and we'd really like everyone to come out and support our boxers and help lift them over the line," he said.

The Boxing in the Bush fight night will be held on Saturday, October 19 at the Moree Services Club. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.
