Joel Lewis chases championship GLORY MARCH 1ST IN PERTH

Rising undefeated Australian welterweight, Joel Lewis returns to the ring on March 1 at Metro City in Perth in his quest for championship glory in a featured Thunderdome 45 contest.

Lewis is coming off back to back fights with Habib Kheririkah earning his way to a Western Australia State welterweight championship against veteran Perth based Turkish boxer, Bahtiar Sonyol.

Lewis states ”I have come from the lowest of lows and now ready to sacrifice everything and leave no stone unturned to get my first boxing championship. I’m very honoured to do this in just my fourth fight.

“I’m blessed to be training at Pinkys Gym with my mentor, Matt Floyd (‘The Jedi’). He’s really a father figure to me and I see how hard he trains and what he puts in and it’s a great example for me.

“Also Tony (Tolj) is unbelievable and to get me this opportunity I cant thank him and the team at Dragon Fire Boxing enough but its up to me to capitalize and I plan on winning in devastating fashion”

Lewis had a small amateur career before turning to the pro ranks June last year in Adelaide and since that time has remained active.

Promoter Tony Tolj discusses the upcoming Title Clash

“This is a step up clash for Joel (lewis), Sonyol is well experienced opponent who is coming of back to back wars with undefeated Australian prospect Jude Grant and was 2 divisions out of his weight division. Now Sonyol is going back to Welterweight his natural weight class. Both fighters will learn from this fight and better for it.

“The card is stacked with 12 fights. An impressive lineup with Western Australia’s top talent. Australasian champion Jordan Laruccia, State champions Jude Grant, Richard Lockett and Lewis Clarke, Habib Kherikah, Jack Thompson, 2x heavyweight showdowns & 4 pro debuts with top amateur going pro.

“This will set the scene for a massive year of Western Australian boxing.”
