Sherrington’s trainer/manager, Brendon Smith said today that he is excited to be working with NHK TV, having Sherrington displayed on the Asian market and having his stable of champion fighters on showcase for the Gold Coast public come Friday night. “I’m excited that all our stable of fighters are going to be featured on this show, there will be some quality boxing on the night with fighters Jack Asis, Brayd Smith, Will Young and Darren Askew to be wrapping up their final preparations for their October 4 title bouts on Smithy brings the big fights 5 in Toowoomba. I’ts been a great preparation, there is a lot on the line for Les and Yonezawa and we are looking forward to a great night of fights come Friday night.”

Also coming face to face for the first time at today’s press conference was the main undercard bout of Rohan ‘no mercy’ Murdoch and Togasilimai Letoa. Murdoch, who needs no introduction to the Gold Coast is coming of a good win against Les Piper, is excited to be back in the ring on the back of a great training camp.
