The State of Origin Boxing competition takes place next month and Echuca's Anthony Burns will represent Victoria.August 27, 2014 2:02pm
Echuca’s Anthony Burns will represent Victoria in a clash of gloves against Queensland at the State of Origin boxing competition next month.
Burns, who trains with coach Jason Garner in Echuca, has spent more than a decade in the ring and has high expectations for the tournament.
Despite having less time to train — marriage, children and work consume most of his time — the 28-year-old who had an undefeated career in his youth, said he had the capacity to succeed.
‘‘I’ve got the talent down,’’ he said.
‘‘I can fight, I’ve got the experience and I’ve been around.’’
The competition is a popular one for boxers in what will be a critical lead-up to the Victorian Open Titles in November.
