Big fight night at Casino
AUSTRALIAN Golden Gloves champion Timacoy Williams will slug it out with Deception Bay fighter Jason Cooper as part of a big night of boxing at the Casino RSM Club tonight.
Williams, from Alstonville's Northside Club, will face Cooper, the former Australian junior flyweight global champion in the main junior event.
Boxing clubs from Tweed Heads, Kingscliff, Murwillumbah, Kempsey, Dorrigo and Grafton will be represented, while boxers from Moree, Ballina, Alstonville, and Kyogle are also expected to line up.
Huge interest has been generated by the matching of Casino light heavyweight Troy Newman with the popular Henry Withowski from Kyogle.
Newman is a tough walk-up fighter while Withowski doesn't mind mixing it with anyone and is a real crowd pleaser.
Adding intrigue to the card is former Casino champion Scott Ellem, who will make a comeback against classy Kingscliff fighter Ricky Irwin.
