Get ready to rumble Mount Isa for the fight of the year because Fred Brophy and his boxing troupe are returning.
The legendary boxing entourage will attend the 60th Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo in August.
Mr Brophy confirmed he would be back, ending speculation he would not be here his year.
Fred Brophy said his boxing tent would be stationed behind the Isa Hotel – as it was in 2017 - and fights are scheduled from Thursday through to Sunday of Rodeo week.
“I want to thank The Isa Hotel and the Red Earth for their sponsorship,” Mr Brophy said.
“Mount Isa is where I made my name and the amount of support I have received from the locals is amazing, I’m really looking forward to coming and seeing everyone.”
Mr Brophy said he would put the challenge out now for potential pugilists.
“If you think you can take on my fighters then come along, I’ll see you in the ring but you better be ready for what lays ahead,” he said.
The North West Star has contacted the Isa Hotel for comment.
