Boxing will return to the Italian Sports Club of Werribee on Sunday for the 2018 Boxing Cup.

Headlining a full day of match-ups will be local fighters Alex Arnold, Eddie Sotero, Lleyton Drozario, Pouya Margharzi and Cooper Morgan.

Fighters from local gyms, including Wyndham Community Boxing Club, Balla Brothers, Werribee Kickboxing, PCYC West, Tarneit Boxing and Reffo Kickboxing, will be on the card, along with some from further afield.

Wyndham Community Boxing Club coach Darren Cowley says a great day of boxing is being billed as “the west against the rest of Victoria”.

“There will be several masters boxing bouts on as well,” he said.

It could be one of the last chances to see Sotero in action as an amateur.

Sotero, a fighter Cowley says “always gives 200 per cent”, is looking to
turn professional in the not too distant future.

Morgan, described by Cowley as a “savvy technician”, is just 15 and has big raps on him ahead of his amateur debut.

Arnold is on the comeback trail from a shoulder injury, but will still prove a tough nut to crack.

Drozario is using his bout as a key warm-up event for representing Victoria at the under-age nationals later this month.

The first bout will be at 12.30pm.

Tickets are available at the door.
