The multiple Latvian/European championship winner will take on left-hand national champion, Girrawheen’s Matt Bacon, in a best-of-five competition at Surge Drovers on Wanneroo Road.

‘Matt has never been beaten left-hand,’ seminar host and former world champion Murray McKay said.

‘Guntars is an ex-world champion and former European champion who won a tri-states competition in the USA only this year.

‘He is a really big deal in the world of arm wrestling and has a cult following.

‘People around Australia are waiting to hear the result.

‘Guntars will talk for about 30 minutes, there will be a practice session and then he will compete in a super match left-hand only against Matt.’

Doors open at 5pm, free admission, food and drink on sale.
