All ten of the main card fighters made weight for tonight’s edition of Big Time Boxing, live on Fox Sports.
Defending Australian super middleweight champion Jake Carr (7-0, 3 KOs) and unbeaten challenger Dane Mulivai (4-0, 4 KOs) tipped the scales below the super middleweight limit for tonight’s main event, and the rest of the main card fighters also made weight for the event from The Melbourne Pavilion.
In the second of three Australian title fights set for ten rounds, Qamil Balla, 24, weighed in at 63.25 with the challenger Terry Tzouramanis, 29, coming in at 63.45. Balla (6-0, 3 KOs) is looking to make amends for lost time, having been out of action since defeating Jack Brubaker last September.
Tzouramanis (12-1-3, 3 KOs) is looking to win his sixth consecutive fight since dropping an avenged points decision to Andrew Wallace in 2012.
Talented African imports Rivan Cesaire (11-5-1, 3 KOs) and Samuel Colomban (22-6, 10 KOs) will meet for the vacant Australian welterweight title, which Colomban is looking to win on his fourth attempt after three previous unsuccessful challenges against Wale Omotoso, Fred Tukes and Jeff Horn.
