Following the inaugural event presented in March, the second installment of “Wildfighter Boxing” was held last night (June 1) at The Timber Yard in Port Melbourne, Australia. Promoted by former IBO World Super Featherweight champion Will Tomlinson, the fight card featured a series of bouts with local and international competitors. The top of the bill saw Jason Whateley and Victor Oganov squaring off at cruiserweight.
The scheduled for eight rounds Whateley vs. Oganov bout ended prior to the final bell. The 28-year-old Rio Olympian from Victoria dealt with the pressure coming from his Russian-Australian opponent in the early rounds, to claim the stoppage win over the 42-year-old in Round 6.
“We got the win! Round 6 stoppage to claim the victorian cruiserweight title. Time to have a bit of r&r after a busy start to the year,” Whateley posted on Instagram Sunday morning thanking those helping him with the achievement.
