Waylon’s waiting game
Words by Nick Crockford

Deception Bay boxer Waylon Law may not have too long to wait for another crack at an Australian title after losing his belt to Justin Frost at Eatons Hill Hotel.

In fact, the “Outlaw”, who lives in Caboolture, may get a chance to regain the Australian super lightweight crown early next year.

His trainer at Deception Bay Boxing Club Damian Smith said Law would be back in the ring late February or early March. Speculation is growing it could be in a trilogy fight with Frost.

Fight of year

Law took the first showdown on a split decision before the “Iceman” got the nod in the second meeting with a majority decision.

“Both have been ‘fights of the year’,” said Smith, “the second one was probably even better than the first.”

Law was magnanimous in defeat, posting on Facebook: “It was a very tough night in the rematch with Justin ‘Iceman’ Frost.

“Cheers my brother, you executed your game plan well. No excuse. Not a loss just a lesson!”

No excuses

On the same bill Matthew Hartmann, Law’s stablemate at Deception Bay, lost his Queensland middleweight title clash with Declan Kelly.

Kelly took the title from Hartmann in September on a unanimous decision and this time retained it with a knockout.

Hartmann said on Facebook: “To come off second best hurts more emotionally than any physical pain you walk into within those ropes.

“No excuses, it was a clean shot I didn’t see coming and it got the job done.”

Early options

However, Hartmann will have fight options early next according to trainer Damian Smith.

Last month Deception Bay’s Chantelle Hissey and Hilary Davey both won their amateur fights at Nambour Showgrounds in an event raising awareness of domestic violence.
