DARREN ASKEW SET TO FIGHT SCOTLAND’S MIKE REID
Sat, 23 Feb 2013
English import Darren Askew, who now calls Toowoomba home has locked in his opponent for his ring return. He will take on Scotland’s Mike Reid on March 8 on the Smithy’s Brings the big fights 3 card in what will be sure to continue the intense rivalry between the “Poms” and the “Scotts”.
Reid, who is from Aberdeen, Scotland, currently resides in Western Australia and is eager to make his debut on Australian soil and has promised to bring a taste of Scotland with him saying that the crowd can expect bagpipes, kilts and war.
The word “war” was also used by Darren Askew who said he will use not only this historic rivalry between nations, but the fact that he previously lost a narrow points decision in Scotland as extra motivation to clench the win.
“I am out for revenge and this is the perfect fight for me to make a statement in my new hometown” said Askew.
Promoter Brendon Smith says he is excited to have another international fight on the march 8 card.
“On paper this is the perfect match up, Mike Reid (5w 5l 1d) vs Darren Askew (6w 6l 1d).” said Smith.
“These boys are coming for war and it is great to add more international flavor to this card and hopefully Toowoomba will come and support their new hometown boy Darren Askew”.
This fight will take place on the undercard of “Smithy’s Brings the Big Fights 3”. The main event on the night will be undefeated Toowoomba featherweight “The Great White” Brayd Smith taking on Japan’s Shogo Sakai for the WBF Asia Pacific Youth title. Also featuring on the night is undefeated Kris George vs Jay Thompson, “Iron” Will Young vs Derek Webber, Josh Webb vs Dale Ryan as well as the much anticipated charity fight between Tressa Lindenberg and Vicky Gilbert.
Tickets for the event are currently on sale at Smithy’s Gym in Toowoomba at $75 for Ringside and $45 for general and as a special offer Smithy’s Gym is giving away a 5 day gym trial valued at $75 for every ringside ticket purchased.
