Foley – De los Reyes Rematch on July 2nd.
By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing
Former Australian lightweight champion Darragh Foley (8-2, 6 KOs) will clash with Joebert de Los Reyes (15-6-1, 10 KOs) over ten rounds with the WBA Oceana 140 pound title up for grabs on July 2 at Club Punchbowl, Sydney, NSW Australia. This is a rematch with de Los Reyes scoring a points victory over Foley in 2015.
Promoter Paul Nasari talked to Fightnews.com® and said “The Foley vs. de los Reyes fight will be a great rematch as the Filipino holds a win over Foley. The WBA Oceana title is up for grabs so it is possible the winner will be world rated. Both fighters have lost to world rated boxers recently and are looking to re-establishing their careers with Foley having lost to WBA rated Brendon Ogilvie and de Los Reyes losing to WBA rated George Kambosis. In my opinion the Foley v de Los Reyes is a 50-50 fight.”
On the undercard, 140-pounder Val Borg (12-2, 8 KOs) will be in action over ten rounds with Geisler Ap (8-8, 5 KOs).
“Crowd pleasing light welterweight Val Borg will return to the ring against Indonesian Geisler AP who holds a knockout victory over Roy Tua Manihuruk, who also boxed Borg and lost a points decision to the hard punching Aussie,” continued Nasari. “There will be several undercard bouts that are excellent match-ups and will be evenly contested in my opinion.”
