Top 5 Australian Boxers to Watch Out for in 2024

2024 has begun strong, with great fights taking place – and more being made for later this year. Many fighters around the world look set to be involved in memorable bouts. Australia are producing some impressive fighters, and Big Fight Weekend are bringing you the top five Australian boxers to watch out for this year. Some big money has been bet on some of these fighters in the past, and 2024 should be no different. 

5 Australian Boxers Bettors Will Watch in 2024

Jai Opetaia

Jai Opetaia (24-0, 19 KOs) is fast becoming one of the most talked about fighters in the world. He has shown plenty of KO power, as proven in his brutally efficient performances against Jordan Thompson and Ellis Zorro. He has also shown he can box for the 12 rounds, as seen in his impressive win over Mairis Briedis. 2024 looks set to be another memorable year for the heavy-handed Australian cruiserweight.

Justis Huni

Justis Huni (8-0, 4 KOs) will be looking forward to a hopefully memorable 2024 after only fighting once in 2023, which saw him defeat Andrew Tabiti by a unanimous decision on the undercard of O’Shaquie Foster’s knockout victory over Eduardo Hernández. Huni is a good boxer who also possesses power. The Australian looks set for a busy 2024 fighting under the Matchroom banner.

Luke Modini

Luke Modini (11-0, 9 KOs) is a big punching cruiserweight who is fast making a name for himself. His most recent win on November 11, 2023, was against Benoit Huber, where Modini showcased his punching power with a first-round KO. Throughout his career thus far, he has exhibited impressive counterpunching, foot movement, and lights-out power, earning him recognition.

Sam Goodman

Super bantamweight Sam Goodman (17-0, 7 KOs) enjoyed a rewarding 2023, winning three times, including a split decision victory over the highly thought-of Ra’eese Aleem. Goodman showcases impressive defensive skills and punches from a variety of angles. He looks destined for big fights in 2024.

Rocky Ogden

Rocky Ogden (6-0, 5 KOs) has shown he has plenty of power, none more so than when he dispatched Mark Schleibs in the first round of their fight in June 2023. The overhand rights from Ogden carry spite, and he also jabs well to the body. He picks his punches impressively and is not afraid to stand and trade with his opponents when needed.
