The Hornet is ready to strike again, this time at the Sleeman Sports Complex on Friday 21 October.

Jeff Horn, the 2012 Olympian, widely considered the best boxer Australia has produced in a generation, is on the verge of breaking into the world’s top two with a world title shot on the near horizon.

“The Hornet” is ready to strike again following an impressive win against three-time world champ, Randall Bailey. His next opponent is the German Welterweight champ Rico Mueller, who’s ranked 14 in the IBF, and has never been off his feet. His record of 20-1-1 (14 KO) proves he can bang!

An explosive undercard will also feature some of Queensland’s finest boxing talent including:

► Rohan Murdoch – QLD super middleweight (18-1 KO 14)
► Shannon O’Connell - Australia’s #1 super bantamweight
► Sam Banney – Horn’s stable mate, ranked in the top 15 in his division, super middleweight.

Make sure you’re ringside for what will be an exceptional night of entertainment.
