The rematch between former Australian heavyweight champion Bob Mirovic (29-20-2, 20 KOs) and John Hopoate (11-3, 11 KOs) will be contested at the AIS stadium in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia on July 23. Leading Australian promoter Fidel Tukel of the BHS gymnasium got the signatures on the contract Sunday and this clash will be televised on the Channel Ten free to air television network. “I am looking forward to this rematch – I will be 100% fighting fit on July 23 when I jump through the ropes,” said Mirovic. “I had a few problems when we boxed last time but there will be no excuses this time.” (Hopoate was declared the winner in round nine in September 2008 when Mirovic’s trainer former three time world champion Jeff Fenech signaled to the referee Bob was in no condition to continue.) Hopoate is coming off a recent second round knockout loss to former WBC heavyweight champion Oliver McCall in Las Vegas in May. Mirovic has boxed several world class heavyweights including WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev, Shane Cameron, Kali Meehan, Danny Williams, Timo Hoffman, Matt Skelton, Rob Calloway and Sinan Samil Sam. “I lost on points – in good fights to Valuev, Hoffman, and Calloway. I will have to much experience at the top level for Hoppa.” ” I will be the winner on July 23,” he concluded.
