Tyson Pedro switches to boxing for the WBC International Bridgerweight Title fight

Tyson Pedro’s eagerly awaited return to the ring will electrify the boxing community. The renowned former light heavyweight contender for the UFC will be the main attraction at the highly anticipated Uncaged Pay-Per-View event, which will air on Stan only on Wednesday, June 12. Pedro is making a big change as he moves from the octagon of mixed martial arts to the squared circle of professional boxing.

Pedro, who made a name for himself in the UFC, will take on Kris Terzievski, the fearsome Australian Heavyweight Champion. This conflict is developing into an exciting battle. Terzievski, who is renowned for his victory against Paul Gallen and his ability to unify the heavyweight belts in Australia and Australasia, will put Pedro to the test when he attempts to make his mark in boxing.

The event was officially unveiled at Sydney’s Liberty Hall, and it was revealed that the fight would take place at the storied Hordern Pavilion. The location, which has a rich history of producing incredible fight nights, is ready to welcome this event to its illustrious schedule.

Several prominent people, including Paul Gallen, Tyrone Peachey of the Penrith Panthers, Tai “Bam Bam” Tuivasa, the heavyweight fighter in the UFC, and others, attended the news conference to offer support for Pedro’s new endeavour.

Mauricio Sulaimán, President of the WBC, expressed his enthusiasm for Pedro’s.

Sulaiman praised Pedro for his courage and will to enter the boxing ring after a stellar MMA career, saying, “I am so excited about this great event and I’m looking forward to being there in June.” In addition, he suggested that Pedro might challenge for the WBC world championship if he was successful.

Australian Olympian Alex Winwood will face Joey Canoy in a WBC Strawweight World Title Eliminator at the upcoming Uncaged event, which promises to be an exciting feast of bouts. Ella Boot, a rising star in Australian boxing, will also be featured on the card when she takes against Tywarna Campbell in a contest that promises to be extremely competitive.

Pedro enters the boxing ring having accomplished a stellar MMA career and an impressive 5-0 record in amateur boxing. Against Terzievski, he will face a formidable opponent. Both athletes have expressed how excited they are about the matchup: Pedro wants to show off his boxing skills, and Terzievski is ready to defend his sport’s honour against an MMA crossover.

Boxing icon Danny Green and Stan’s Director of Sports Ben Kimber are equally excited about this event, expecting a spectacular evening that highlights the diverse potential in Australian boxing.

The Uncaged programme, which is only accessible to Stan subscribers, is expected to include an exciting selection of fights and is presented by Danny Green’s Green Machine Boxing. Boxing fans will expect an exciting evening of professional boxing, with Pedro taking on Terzievski for the WBC International Bridgerweight Title in the headline event.
