KRIS GEORGE TO FACE ARGENTINIAN FOR BRAYD SMITH TITLE
Mon, 12 Feb 2018
KRIS GEORGE HAS ONE FINAL MISSION TO COMPLETE IN THE GARDEN CITY - a Brayd Smith title.
He's won Queensland titles, WBA Regional titles and is the current Commonwealth champion - the World stage is on his door step but first comes March 10.
TGW & Smithy Bring the Big Fights 19:In honour of Brayd Smith presents possibly the final time the Silencer will fight in front of his home fans. George meets Argentinian Maximiliano Scalzonel with the winner to claim the Brayd Smith WUC title.
"I'm very excited to be fighting back home," George said.
"There are some exciting prospects in the near future so it will be great to be performing in front of a home crowd again.
"Fighting for the Brayd Smith title means a lot to me and I'm very keen to get my hands on one of those belts."
The George vs Scalzonel showdown is an exciting prospect.
George is 13-1 and the Argentinian has a career record of 16 wins, 1 draw and just 1 loss. 12 of his 16 wins have come by way of knockout.
"As an opponent its another unknown," George said.
"He has a great record which never comes easy so I'm prepared for a war.
"I'll be in peak condition and I'm looking to make a big statement on March 10."
The George vs Scalzonel fight is the fourth Brayd Smith title bout on the stacked card.
"It's a very special night for everyone involved," Promoter Brendon Smith said.
"To have our Commonwealth Champion Kris George fighting for a Brayd Smith belt is a huge drawcard for fight fans.
"Kris has been to Sydney where he was the star of the show, it was a similar story in New Zealand when he stunned Bowyn Morgan to have him back in the ring in Toowoomba is huge.
"Kris is a serious player on the World stage, if he can win here on March 10 it's quite possible his next bout will be a significant stepping stone towards a World title."
