The name comes out of the Mad Max Thunderdome Movie, as it’s the most unique venue in all of Australia boxing, there are 4 levels in an amphitheater style modern-day colosseum, all looking down at the ring. The ring itself is situated on a stage as the venue operates as a concert venue.
Thunderdome began back in 2003 and has amassed 33 events & is ingrained in the fabric of Australian boxing. World Champions who have appeared on Thunderdome cards have been WBA Champion of the decade Chris John, Vic Darchinyan, Jeff Horn, Daud Yornan, Simpiwe Vetyeka as well as regular appearances by Australian icon Danny Green. The current generation of Western Australian boxers have all made their pro debuts at the Thunderdome
Dragon Fire Boxing Promoter Tony Tolj discusses the pandemic and the upcoming card;
One thing which has separated Thunderdome from everywhere else is the competition, its always as best of 50/50 fights as you can get and March is shaping up to be another stellar night of action ANBF Light Flyweight title contest putting Sarah Higginson and Bec Moss. Also will be two state titles as Matt Floyd takes on Lui Guivalu and Joe McCoy takes on Fano Kori, the exciting debut of Simon Gerbat.
There are many more exciting fights to be announced along with some pro debuts, one thing is for certain, 2 men enter, 1 man leaves, Welcome back the Thunderdome!”
