Brizuela who is a WBO and IBF Latin American Champion as well an Argentinean Boxing representative at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens has vowed to take the title back to Argentina. “It is my dream to win the World Title and bring it back to Argentina,” Brizuela said.

Jeremy “War Machine” Van Diemen (4-0-1, 3 KO’s) will take on fellow undefeated West Australian Andrew “Mean Machine” Green (10-0, 5 KO’s) for the Western Australian State Light Heavyweight Title.

Local prospects, “Sammy Automatic” Hogan and “Brilliant” Brandon Ogilvie will also be on Dragon Fire Promotions “Thunderdome II”.
