Powdrill Jets to China for Boxing Showdown

Eminent Australian fighter Robert Powdrill represents the nation in Beijing, China on Wednesday 25th May 2016.

Rob Powdrill, 32, is the man who needs no introduction. An outstanding fight sports personality who experienced all stand-up disciplines, as well as went through eight Mixed Martial Arts challenges. For over the last three years Perth-born fighter has been competing in boxing, along side his long-term Muay Thai venture.


Powdrill’s current record in boxing counts 9 bouts with 7 victories. In 2014 he caused a sensational upset by knocking Damien Hooper out in ten seconds in Brisbane, Qld. In 2015 he beat Sam Rapira in New Zealand and received a green light for a world title shot. Although facing a defeated from Trent Broadhurst in his latest challenge last November in Brisbane, Qld, he is full of fight.

Powdrill is fighting on Wednesday 25th May in Beijing, China. The 79 kilogram six-rounder will see Australian star fighting an opponent who’s name is yet to be revealed. The actual reason, though, is that Powdrill has no detailed information on the contest. It causes no worries for him either.

Indeed, last year during the press conference ahead of the Broadhurst clash, Powdrill was questioned in regards to a previous Brisbane venture when Hooper went down. Perth fighter confirmed that he took the fight on a four days notice.

“I just go and do my thing, I don’t really worry about the other person” he said.

The research tells us that Powdrill is likely fighting in the undercard of Ruenroeng-Casimero rematch held at the Diamond Stadium in Beijing, China. We will have more on this story as it develops.

Robert Powdrill is a unique Australian who has achieved notable results in all fighting disciplines. To date he has represented the nation in France, Spain, New Zealand and Thailand.

“I have not ruled out muaythai, kickboxing or MMA,” he says.

“But at the moment I am focusing on boxing.”
