Wills to headline next fight night

WBO and IBO Asia Pacific Junior Welterweight title holder Steve Wills is set to defend his titles in the Whitsundays on October 30.

The 26-year-old professional boxer will headline an impressive fight card and said he was looking forward to the event.

“I can't wait to put on a show and fight up there,” he said.

“It's going to be unreal.”

The southpaw boxer fights out of Copacabana in NSW and is trained by legendary boxing trainer Angelo Hyder, who also trains Danny Green.

Wills said that having Hyder in his corner was very inspirational.

“He has always guided me,” he said.

“He trains me well and he's like a role model to me.”

The much-anticipated boxing fight night to be held at the Whitsunday Sports Park at the end of October will see Wills take to the canvas for the first time since suffering a serious knee injury earlier this year.

But the undefeated Wills, who is currently ranked 11th in the world, said that he would be ready for a tough encounter.

“I've been training really hard and I've been sparring really good,” he said.

“I'm going to be 100 per cent.

“It's going to be a hard fight and I'm going to have to be on my game.”

Wills said Whitsunday boxing enthusiasts could expect a good show of professional boxing when he took to the ring to defend his titles for the third time.
