LARUCCIA RETURNS MARCH 1ST AT THUNDERDOME 45

PhilBoxing.com





Undefeated Australian Super Welterweight Jordan Laruccia returns to the ring on March 1 in one of the Main Events at Thunderdome 45.

Jordan is coming off a career best performance September 1st where in an Australian fight of year contending fight he soundly defeated Fano Kori of the Australian National Boxing Federations Australalsian Super Welterweight Championship.

Australian boxing icon Danny Green was in the corner for Larrucias last fight, & had the following to say:

“Jordan can fight, such as crowd pleasing style and he rose to the occasion in every round. Fano had over 100 amateur fight and Jordan had zero, it just shows you what you can do with dedication and belief”

After a 6 month hiatus Laruccia will take on 50 plus fight veteran Wellem Reyk of Indonesia who is coming of an impressive victory in Singapore

Reyk is no stranger to travelling having fought in Singapore, Japan, Philippines & Australia previously.

Reyk “Im not here to make up number at this point in my career, Im going to completely empty the tank and see what Laruccia is made of”


Laruccia states "I've got the utmost respect for all my opponents, to be honest with you. But come March 1, it's going to be a fantastic fight. He's going to come for war. I'm going to come hard and come for war as well. So I'm excited to see what this fight has in store but I definitely want to make a statement."

He and his team at Big Rig's Gym will now look to build on the solid foundations they laid in the lead-up to the Kori fight as they prepare for Reyk.

"I feel fantastic. My body feels good & cant wait to get back in that ring and show all my improvements," Laruccia explains.

While his focus is squarely on winning on March 1, Laruccia and his team are also preparing for the next chapter of his career. There are several potential match ups waiting for him should he get past Reyk, and in Tony Tolj, Laruccia has one of the sharpest managers in the game by his side.

"We'll probably be branching out over east and possibly abroad start working our way through the super welterweight division in Australia. There's a lot of top fighters in that weight division,

Laruccia's boxing journey only began five years ago, and he is now in a position many up-and-coming fighters only dream of. However, from here on out, while the rewards will get bigger, the stakes will be higher and the fights tougher. It is an exciting time for Laruccia, who relishes the daily grind required of any boxer looking to make their name in the sport.

"I'm enjoying every moment of it, you know, fantastic memories to be made for myself later in life. So, I'm loving it at the moment and looking for a massive 2024 and onwards."
