Kaitlin's showing up the boys

Kaitlin Stagg receives some advice in her corner from trainer Rodd Parry.
Kaitlin Stagg receives some advice in her corner from trainer Rodd Parry.

WITH three wins and one loss in her four fights, Warwick Boxing Club member Kaitlin Stagg is eyeing off a professional career sometime in the future.

"Boxing is not just a man's sport, girls should get out and show they can do everything too," she said.

And show them she did by not taking a backward step in giving away 10kg in weight in a three-round exhibition bout against Toowoomba boxer Tebani Hartz on Saturday night.

The fight was one of 10 on the program at Kings at the Warwick RSL.

Stagg was only matched on Saturday morning against Hartz.

She had been out of boxing for four months after a bout of illness and admitted she was a bit rusty in her return to the ring.

Stagg has a lot of confidence in her trainer Rodd Parry as she aims to forge a career in the sport.

"I just want to be a fighter," she said.

It won't be all plain sailing as most of her opponents are taller and have a reach advantage.

"I try not to see it as a disadvantage but more of a challenge," Stagg said.

"I want to be pushed to the limit.

"On Saturday night, the referee said it was only an exhibition but I couldn't help it (go hard).

As to whether it hurts in the ring, Stagg simply said "you warm up to the punches after a while".

Warwick Boxing Club co-trainer Roy Parry said he was impressed by the form of Kane Gillies who won every round against brave Toowoomba opponent Chris Bevan.

"He overwhelmed his opponent with clever boxing and power punching," Parry said.

Warwick boxer Brad Phillips went down to Joseph Vannaanon, of Pacific Club.

Paul Parry will fight Adam Saunders, of Pacific, for a 48kg state title on November 3 in Brisbane.
