Australian cruiserweight champion Daniel Ammann (20-4-1 4 KOs) clearly outscored Oscar Siale (12-7 4 KOs) of New Zealand over ten rounds at the Newcastle Basketball Stadium, New South Wales, Australia on Friday. The Aussie champ at 6.2″ was the taller boxer by 2′ and used accurate left jabs to keep the aggressive importation off balance. Siale connected with solid head and body shots but was outworked by the national cruiserweight champion. “Amman boxed a good fightand had his left jab working well.” Said aid promoter Peter Hallett. “Siale came to fight and did hurt Amman a few times.”
In his previous ring outing Ammann dropped a ten round points decision to former world rated heavyweight Shane Cameron in 2010 and had lost in two rounds to world rated Alexander Alexeev in Germany in 2009. Sial featured in one of the best Australian fights for 2010 when he dropped a close twelve round points decision to Dominic Vea in nationally Foxtel televised Commonwealth cruiserweight title bout. In the main supporting bout at middleweight poundage Tui Leveni (11-2-1 6 KOs) scored a third round knockout over Aswin Cbuy (11-18-1 4 KOs) of Indonesia. Leveni dropped his opponent with a solid body shot (Cabuy suffered broken rib). “Cabuy was in good shape for this fight but a hard body punch from Leveni cracked Cabuy’s rib.” Said Peter Hallett. Leveni had given WBO and WBA rated Ryan Waters the fight of his life on the undercard of Danny Green vs Roy Jones Jr. in a six round contest that was declared a draw. The promoter and matchmaker was Peter Hallett.
