BLAIRGOWRIE boxer Jayde Mitchell is going into next weekend’s Kings of Kombat bout “without injury for the first time in years”.
Since his previous fight in December he has fully recovered from elbow surgery and stem cell therapy to fix shoulder tears.
The super middleweight nicknamed “The Matador” is confident of success against Ibrahim Tamba, of Tanzania, on the 10th anniversary Kings of Kombat event. Their bout is second ranked among eight fights at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, Albert Park, Saturday 14 September.
Rated eighth in the world Mitchell regards this fight as a “tune up” after which he will undertake a five-fight deal with promoter Lynden Hosking and Fox Sports.
All going well he will fight outdoors at Mornington Racecourse in November.
