Friday night, at The Melbourne Pavilion in Flemington, Victoria, Australia, Joe DeGuardia’s undefeated Super Middleweight Zac Dunn became the first Australian in almost 30 years to win a Commonwealth title as he bested a determined Liam Cameron over the 12 round distance in a Super Middleweight showdown.
Native son Dunn, (23-0 18KO’S), who is rated #6 WBC and WBO, #7 IBF, and #13 WBA, took the decision over Sheffield, England’s Cameron (19-5 7KO’S) by scores of 117-111, 116-112, and a dubious 115-113.
Dunn, known for his power punching and aggressive style of fighting showed he can be versatile when he has to be as he clearly outboxed Cameron over the course of the fight.
Dunn took control from the beginning moving nicely while working off the jab and kept Cameron at bay for most of the fight. Dunn’s punch output was incredible during the entire 12 round contest and mixed in a terrific body attack which brought the high guard of Cameron down. Dunn kept a frenetic pace and never slowed down over the course of the fight and by most accounts won almost every round in his sternest test to date as a professional.
Star Boxing head Joe DeGuardia had this to say about Dunn’s performance,"Zac showed tonight
that he is an all around fighter. He displayed wonderful boxing skills as he out fought the boxer, Liam Cameron who was a very good opponent. Zac showed he is ready to compete with the best at Super Middleweight and I fully expect Zac to get a shot at a world title in 2017".
