RISING boxing star Nathaniel May will attempt to claim the Australasian Featherweight Championship this month at the CDL Super Card.

The World Boxing Organisation (WBO) number 12 will fight it out against Maxsaisai Sithsiathong from Thailand for a chance to be ranked top 15 in the world with the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

Australia’s number one lightweight Brandon Ogilvie has also landed himself a spot on CDL Supercard, after dominating what is said to be his biggest fight to date, derailing well-hyped Darragh Foley, of Sydney earlier in March over 10 rounds.

Lauryn Eagle, who to date is Australia’s most active female boxer, has taken on the challenge of facing Australia’s Muay Thai world champion Alicia Pestana over six exciting rounds of boxing.

The May 7 event will include the return of undefeated boxer Sam Hogan from recent hand injury and having 12 months out of the ring, undefeated middleweight Renato Oliveira, younger brother of dual world champion Youssef Dib.

Local competitors include Pestana and Zac Einersen from Osborne Park, Benny Hart from Highgate, Wade Robertson and Jackson Moorhouse from Inglewood and Alex Amoroso from Morley.
