Daniel is returning to Tasmania for his first world title defence against hard-hitting American Eromesele Albert. He will return to his home state for the first time since 2009, giving fans in Tasmania a rare opportunity to see their local hero in action fresh from his stunning victory over German champion Sebastian Sylvester in May. Despite receiving lucrative offers to fight big name boxers in Australia and overseas, he will repay his hometown fans by taking on experienced American Eromesele Albert in the first world title boxing event to ever be staged in Tasmania.
“I’m very proud of my heritage and am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to have my first mandatory defense in Hobart. I remember shadow boxing as a kid, dreaming about what it would feel like to have a world title fight in front of my home fans. That dream has become a reality now and I just can’t wait to get back out there and put on a show for all the people that helped me get to where I am today”
