TOWNSVILLE’S Mark ‘Bam Bam’ Flanagan looked primed as he stepped on the scales ahead of his Australian Cruiserweight title showdown with rugged Southpaw Daniel Ammann, Saturday night at the Townsville Entertainment Centre.
Flanagan (15-4, 10KOs) tipped the scales at a ripped 90.6kg and said he feels great and is confident going into Saturday night’s clash.
Coming off a defeat in a Commonwealth title tilt, Ammann (29-6-1, 6KOs), known as ‘The Doberman’, will be looking to upset the local and prove he still has some bite left at 31 years of age. He weighed in at 90.4kg.
This event will also see the next crop of North Queensland talent make the leap into the paid rankings and test themselves against Thai opponents.
Townsville based, Mt Isa born Kolby Johnston does battle with Pramool Boonpok. 21 year old Dean Thomas clashes with Paitoon Jaikom. While 19 year old Ingham local Zorran Cassidy takes on Arnon Yuchareon.
