With the biggest fight of his career looming upon him, Will Tomlinson of Australia is more than ready to put on a show for fans in Texas. Tomlinson is going to be facing Mexican fighter Francisco Vargas for the WBO International & NABF super featherweight titles in a 10 round bout on HBO2 Latino; the biggest platform Will has ever been showcased on. His goal, to dethrone Vargas, and have a coming out party for his HBO debut, in what he expects to be a victory.
“Me and my trainer have been working very hard for this. Afterwards, we’re going to go eat all the ribs and barbecue at all the places available.”
Said Will, in a recent interview with ESNews, who is very confident and excited to be able to show American fans what skills he can produce. Not only American fans, but more so the Mexican fans who love their boxing, as Will states.
“I know that, especially the Mexican fans they love their boxing, and I plan on giving them a great show against Vargas. I believe with my style of fighting, they’ll appreciate it and hopefully gain some new followers in the process.”
Tomlinson, who has fought in the U.S only twice before, has been showcased his entire career across seas. He is not new to having a pro-Mexican crowd. Tomlinson fought once in Cancun, Mexico against Alberto Cupido, who he beat via 8th round unanimous decision. Most fighters dream of coming to America, gaining tremendous exposure and getting big money fights on big money platforms. Wild Will as he calls himself is no exception.
In his American debut a year ago this Sunday, he took a decision loss to Jerry Belmontes, but then had a better performance his second time around when he stopped Miguel Zamudio in 8 rounds in San Diego.
Now, as he prepares to showcase his skills on national television, Wild Will promises to give us all a show where we will remember him.
“I might have to box, I might have to brawl, I might have to do whatever. You know, the number one thing on my mind is to do whatever to win. I’m hungry, I’ve been training hard, I’m ready for this I’m ready for this opportunity and I’m going to make it count; I’m going to come out of that fight with the WBO international and NABF titles around my waist.”
