Thunderome 22 – Francis Chua lightweight title fight

6th October 2017 – Metro City

Chinese Community Centre Co-trainer, Francis Chua debuted this year as a pro in boxing. Since his pro-debut, Francis has won all of his bouts, and due to these wins he earnt himself a shot at the light weight title.

Francis was up against a top prospect from Queensland, in which many believed this will be a tough fight for Francis. Francis and Luke Toope were the main event of the evening. The CCC Lion Dance Troupe again provided a blessing entrance for Francis, as the 2 lions escorted Francis to the ring. The fight was scheduled for 6 x 3 minute rounds.

The beginning rounds had both fighters testing each other to see what each one brought to the fight. But Francis’s strength and power was too much as he overtook the fight within the first round. In round 3 Francis nearly finished the fight by rocking Luke. Francis threw many body shots which in the 4th round, dropped Luke twice. But it was in the closing minutes of the 4th round where Francis connected with a hook and beat Luke via TKO to capture the light weight title.

What makes this story more interesting is Francis, a year ago, said he was going pro, who knew after a year he will capture the light weight title. The future opportunities are endless for Francis! The CCC Lion Dance Troupe are made up of talented individuals who are champions in football, soccer, DJ scratching, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Now we can add to that list, boxing champion. Congrats on this huge achievement Francis. The Champ has finally arrived.
