Doheny to face former two weight World champ in Continental defence

TJ Doheny has been afforded the chance to make a statement in Australia on October 3.

‘The Power’ has powered his way to Continental success Down Under and secured a World ranking before he has even had 10 fights.

The Portlaiose native has eyes on an exciting and lucrative super bantamweight World scene, but felt he needed some big fight experience before looking for clashes with the likes of Scott Quigg, Luis Santa Cruz and even Carl Frampton, who he holds an amateur win over.

Denkaosan Kaovichit, who Doheny faces early October at Alexandria Basketball Stadium, Perry Park, New South Wales, certainly brings experience and provides the PABA super bantamweight champ with a chance to put a name of note on his record.

The Thai puncher is a former flyweight and super flyweight World champion, is a veteran of 69 fights, holds a win over one of the Kameda brothers aswell as some other World rated opponents.

At 38 the Ko Samui native is coming to the end of his career, but he has used the PABA route to two World titles and knows better than most what holding the strap currently around the waist of Doheny can do for your career.
