Three boxers from the Great Lakes will travel to Punchbowl to test their mettle in the ring this Saturday night.
Shant Nercessian, Dyllan Kennedy and Nikita Quinn will fight on the undercard of the Neutral Corner/Lionheart Promotions Fight Night at Club Punchbowl.
All three have been training hard with Shane Nielsen and Jason Harvey at Deliver Sportz gym, and Nielsen believes his fighters are as well prepared as they could be.
For 38-year-old heavyweight Nercessian, it will be his first appearance in the ring since losing his professional debut to Belmont's Jake Snowden in August.
Nielsen said both he and Nercessian had learnt a lot from that loss and have been working on a number of new things, including Nercessian's hand speed.
He'll face Sydney-based fighter Jeff King, who fought on the undercard of his last fight at Lake Macquarie.
Nielsen said King was a strong guy who liked to come forward, which would make it a good fight to watch.
"I'm really looking forward to this fight," he said.
"I think he (Nercessian) is going to win."
Forster middleweight Dyllan Kennedy will make his fighting debut against fellow first-timer Maniu Dawanincura, and Nielsen says he's already shown lots of promise.
"He's tough and he's dedicated," he said.
"He's got that natural athletic ability."
The 25-year-old has lost 10kg and given up smoking since he first started training at Deliver Sportz, and Nielsen believes this kind of commitment will pay dividends for him in the ring.
Also making her official debut on the night will be 17-year-old Nikita Quinn, who's previously participated in an exhibition fight.
Nielsen believes the young lady has the potential to go along way.
"She's a natural. She moves really well. She's got so much potential, she's just got to believe in it."
The main event on the night will see Ty Telford and German Benitez contest the WBF super lightweight world title.
