Ben Kelleher: Boxer

KELLEHER is one of the 14 fighters who will feature on the Airlie Fight Night Five fight card on July 16.

Whitsunday Martial Arts coach Dan Zealand said Kelleher would be one to watch for the home crowd.

"Keep an eye out for Ben to use his power and natural ability to put on an awesome show on the night," he said.

"Ben is another powerful and dominant boxer from our gym."

Zealand believes his fighter will get the result the crowd wants, due to his commitment to his training in the gym.

"When it comes to his fight preparation he takes no backward steps in his approach," he said.

There is no lack of experience in combat sport for Kelleher, having fought professionally across kickboxing, MMA and now boxing.

"Ben has been in some huge battles bringing his best every time," Zealand said.
