JACK'S BACK: Eyes set on getting back his IBO World title

PhilBoxing.com





JACK ASIS ANNOUNCES RETURN TO THE RING

Eyes set on getting back his IBO World title
.
FIGHTERS FIGHT, JACK ASIS IS WAS WILL ALWAYS BE A FIGHTER, today he announced he's returning to the sport he loves after a brief retirement. Whilst enjoying his time away from the sport the competitive fire never extinguished and he began training again last December. Now the fire is raging like a volcano with potential performance enhancing drug charges laid against Malcolm Klassen, the South African who defeated Asis in his final bout in August and taking the Assassin's IBO World title.

According to multiple reports in December just one day prior to the South African's scheduled bout with Yuri Gamboa, police allegedly raided Klassen's hotel room and found the fighter, his trainer, and a nurse - with illegal performance enhancing drugs in their possession. Klassen and his trainer were arrested and taken into custody to face charges.

"We're not going to comment on the situation with Klassen because we don't know the full details," Asis Trainer Manager Brendon Smith said.

"However in light of the reports I've contacted IBO president Ed Lavine and requested, if the allegations are proven to be correct, Jack Asis should be re-instated as the IBO World Champion.

"We will let the investigation run its course but we will be keeping a close eye on the situation because if proven guilty it casts huge doubts over the legitimacy of Malcolm's win over Jack.

"All I ask is 'was Jack beaten far and square' there was very little in that fight and if Malcolm is found to of cheated Jack deserves to be re-instated as the World Champion.

"Fair's fair, Jack did everything by the rule book, did Malcolm?

"That's the question we deserve answers for."

Asis had very little to say regarding the situation with Klassen but admitted it did leave a sour taste in his mouth.

"If it's true about Malcolm, that's not fair to me," Asis said.

"I leave everything up to my manager Brendon Smith and the IBO.

"I just happy to be back fighting.

"I enjoyed my time off, but it made me realise I retire too soon and make decision on spur of the moment.

"But the break has been a good thing, I feel refreshed and feel I can still match it with the best in Australia and across the World.

"Before announcing my retirement we were trying to fight the likes of Will Tomlinson, Joel Brunker and Billy Dib.

"Will has since retired but I happy to fight Joel Brunker or Billy Dib if they're willing to fight me.

"I just concentrate on training and I leave everything else up to my manager.

"I'm happy to be back and I hope Toowoomba support me again like before.

"I love Toowoomba, it's my home and I'm very proud to be a part of this community.

" Wherever I fight I always try my best for Toowoomba."

Asis' Manager Brendon Smith believes there is plenty of fuel left in the tank and plenty of opportunities awaiting the Assassin.

"In Jack's last fight he showed his class on the World stage with a great performance against Malcolm Klassen in Klassen's back yard in a World Championship bout," Smith said.

"At the time Asis was Australia's sole World Champion, if Klassen is found guilty of the allegations Jack deserves the belt back - but we will let that one play out.

"However we won't be sitting still, I've reached out to Joel Brunker's camp to see if we can make this fight happen.

"We've tried before without willingness from Brunker's camp - I've made an offer again, so once again the ball is in their court.

"We have a show in Toowoomba on March 11, Jack is very keen to defend his Brayd Smith World United Championship belt so that's another possibility.

"There is also international interest following his great performance in South Africa.

"China is a possibility, Liu Gang has shown interest in Jack fighting on one of his shows in the past so we will explore that as well.

"Jack's happy, he's training well, his trademark grin is there to see everyday in the gym.

"I support whatever Jack wants to do, he's fit, healthy and wants to fight again so I'll happily be in his corner.

"Jack's back!

"That's a great thing for our fight fans."
