John Hopoate Wins Australian Heavyweight Title

A former rugby league player John Hopoate won the Australian heavyweight title by TKO on Wednesday when former champion Bob Mirovic threw in the towel after a sequence of heavy hits and knockdowns in the 9th round of their title fight.

This is a great victory for him since he took up boxing only 3 years ago when the National Rugby League --club Manly-- tore up his contract after he was banned for 17 matches for a severe tackle that left an opponent bleeding from his ears and with a concussion.
