Darren Obah (2004) Boxing


Darren Obah was without doubt the iron man of Australian Boxing.

After a stunning amateur career, which led him to a record 8 Australian championships, the 86 Edinburgh Commonwealth Games and the 92 Barcelona Olympics, he turned professional in March 1993.

In typical Aussie battler style he went from state champion, to being the number one contender for the WBA World Middleweight title, fighting for the interim championship at the home of boxing, Madison Square Garden in New York in 1999.

Obah’s ring name was “The Body Snatcher” with many of his 12 knock out wins coming from devastating body shots.
