The second installment of the Premier Boxing Series promises to be an all-action night of fights, with two ANBF title fights heading the April 17 bill.

In the main event, Australian welterweight champion Joel Taylor (10-1, 4 KOs) defends his crown against all-action star Lachlan O’Shea (8-3, 4 KOs).

Triumph, in O’Shea’s eyes, would be a a just reward after years toiling away with dreams of championship gold. For Taylor, taking his title back to Victoria is another opportunity to solidify his place at the top of the domestic scene.
