Eli chases his dream

NOOSA father and son team Paul and Eli Madigan have one more goal they would like to achieve before Eli retires from the square ring of Muay Thai boxing.

Eli Madigan will have his 71st fight (60 wins) at Noosa Leisure centre on May 13 against up and comer Brisbane fighter Nick Trask who is himself a very experienced fighter with 32 fights for 24 wins and is undefeated in his last eight.

Eli,32, has been suffering from a shoulder injury over the past few years and is 100% in top shape at the moment.

Eli has been trained by his dad since he was four-years-old and they have a fantastic bond and they training in the hills of Black Mountain, Cooroy.

Both men have their mind and hearts set on getting a world title that has been so close over the past 10 years.

And the much anticipated big fight card will be their first step to realising there dream which hopefully would be staged on the Sunshine Coast.

Also on the card will be history making with the first ever professional boxing in Noosa with two of Sunshine Coast amateurs Casey Caswell and Jackson King turning to the pro ranks as well as one of the best prospect heavyweights in the country Django also will be fighting.
