Aussie prospect Jordan Laruccia captures gold at Thunderdome 43

This past Friday as part of the Main Event of Thunderdome 43 at Metro Ciyt in Perth, Western Australia Jordan Larrucia defeated Fano Kori by unanimous decision for the ANBF (Australian Boxing Federation) Australasian Super Welterweight Championship.

The fight was a back-and-forth war with Larrucia cementing himself as one of the rising prospects of the Australian boxing scene.

Jordan Laruccia opened up about the fight;

“I would like to thank so many people, my coach Big Rig (Dayle Phillips), Tony (Tolj), Greeny (Danny Green) in my corner. I really have the best team in the world and I’m always striving to be better.

I had a great camp with Pops (Dayle Phillips) and want to thank all my team mates Jude Grant who won the W.A State Super Welterweight Title, Ryan Daye who had a 28 second KO, Wes Capper and Millad Farzad.

I learnt a lot in there, It was an honour to share the ring with Fano who has so much experience and I will keep training hard and keep improving and be the best I can be.

Promoter Tony Tolj gave his take on the fight;

“The fight was an absolute war of attrition at times, both Jordan and Fano left everything they physically had in that ring. Fano has plenty to give and Jordan has proven he belongs in the elite of the Super Welterweight division in Australia. What’s more remarkable is the fact Jordan hadn’t had 1 amateur boxing fight. He began as a gym cleaner and was asked one day to be a sparring partner because of the guys didn’t show up. Australia is in a boom period now and looking forward to seeing Jordan Laruccia right there in the mix at 24 years old.”
