MMA fans mark your calenders as Superfight Australia returns with another not to be missed event…SFA 13: Spooner vs. Whittaker
The WA Italian Club in Northbridge will be the venue once again as Superfight Australia hosts it’s “lucky number 13″ show on Friday 23rd March and fight fans are in for a treat with another supreme line up of renowned interstate and local fighters.
Headlining the event will be a matchup that promoter Habby Heske admits he has wanted for a long time, between current SFA welterweight champion Shaun Spooner and rapidly rising star Robert Whittaker. Both fighters are at an international level and hold notable victories over Australian top contenders.
Fighting out of Bunbury MMA Fight Centre, Spooner secured the promotions welterweight title last October in just under 2 minutes with a rear naked choke victory over the well experienced Sydneysider Jon Leven and is currently on an 8-fight win streak.
Some of his other impressive victories include a submission (armbar) over Gokhan Turkyilmaz 15 seconds into their bout at CFC 15, a third round knockout victory over former Australian Olympic wrestler Chris Brown at Superfight Australia 8 and a first round submission (rear naked choke) of Dave Vergers at Superfight Australia 10.
Young gun Whittaker who trains out of PMA Super Martial Arts Centre recently defeated Queenslander Ian Bone with a second round TKO at CFC 19 back in December. This victory came after suffering his first loss at Legend FC in October, prior to the loss Whittaker was undefeated with a 7-fight win streak with victories over Corey Nelson, Ben Alloway and Nate Thompson.
This fight will place the winner as the top welterweight in this country and when you look at the fight records of these men it doesn’t take long to realise that neither of them will want to leave their fight in the hands of the judges making it a very exciting matchup for the fans.
Also included on the card will be Dean Roberts, Joel Oliver, Jordan Cameron, Dave Vergers, Steve Kennedy, Shane Williams, Danny Petanovik and Kris Kemps to name but a few.
