By Paul Upham: Australian Joel Brunker retained his WBO Youth featherweight boxing title with an eighth round TKO stoppage win over late replacement Roberto Lerio, originally from the Philippines, on Thursday night 25 November at The Cube in Campbelltown, Sydney, headlining a Grange Old School Boxing promotion.
24 year-old Brunker 17-0 (11), won the Australian featherweight title in August 2009 and secured the WBO Youth title in his last fight on September 2 against Carlos Lopez, was too strong for 24 year-old Lerio 13-11-1 (5), who now resides in North Sydney.
Also on the promotion, Australian welterweight champion Victor Chernous defeated Ray Musson by six round unanimous points decision, while new local glamour girl Lauryn Eagle had a six round draw with Eilleen Forrest, 57-57, 59-55 and 57-57.
