Johnny Lewis’ Boxing Series: British Beef
24 May 2018 18:30 AEDT
Australian boxing legend Johnny Lewis has announced the next instalment of the wildly successful Johnny Lewis’ Boxing Series, to be held on Thursday May 24 at The Star, Sydney.
The stacked seven fight card has been dubbed ‘British Beef’ and will be headlined by a world class welterweight showdown between Sydney’s ‘Gelignite’ Jack Brubaker (13-2-1) and classy Englishman Tyrone Nurse (35-3-2). The bout will act as a final eliminator for the Commonwealth Welterweight Title held by North Queensland’s Kris George who beat Brubaker in a bout stopped on a cut at the Johnny Lewis’ Boxing Series event in October 2017.
The co-feature is the highly-anticipated grudge match between English-born Sydneysider Ben Savva (8-1) and Newcastle’s Kyron Dryden (10-1). Savva will be defending his WBC-affiliated OPBF Welterweight Title in a bout that has been rescheduled from the March edition of the Johnny Lewis’ Boxing Series.
The impressive Tim Tszyu (8-0) will also feature on the card, defending his WBC Asian Super Welterweight Title against Indonesia’s Larry Siwu (27-10).
