Argentinean boxer to make his NZ debut in TaurangaSave
Clash of the Corporates 6 tomorrow night at the Memorial Hall at the QE2 Youth Centre in Tauranga will feature the debut of exciting Argentina Middleweight Tomas "La Cobra" Reynoso in New Zealand.
The Argentina fighter who has relocated to the Western Bay of Plenty with the support of his brother who lives locally will take on Kiwi journeyman Daniel Maxwell in a middleweight contest over six rounds.
"La Cobra" brings an eight-win, one-loss and one-draw professional record in Argentina to his New Zealand debut. Ranked in the top 200 from 1537 boxers in the middleweight division by independent rankings agency Box Rec, the Tauranga Boxing Club's recruit is likely to shake up the middleweight division in New Zealand.
Maxwell is a good old-fashioned pro who will go anywhere at the drop of a hat to fight.
While the Argentinean will be heavily favoured to emerge with a win, the fight will be a real test of the capabilities of Reynoso.
The undercard on Saturday night features 12 corporate bouts where the participants challenge their fears in the boxing ring. Each boxer on the night gets to select their fight name, with some unusual names accompanying each participant into the ring.
All the boxers have been training for the last eight weeks at TGA Box under the watchful eye of Chris Walker and his assistant trainers.
