Ben Kelleher is a true fighting-man! Not only does he have great battle-experience from Mixed Martial Arts, he is actually active in MMA and professional boxing at the same time; sometimes fighting in both sports with only days in between.
Born in Auckland, New Zealand, he is now based in Brisbane Australia. Apart from fighting, Ben is also an author!
Ben made his professional boxing debut in August of 2016, and despite taking on some good opponents, he has managed to stay unbeaten and burst onto the scene as a very promising prospect in the Cruiserweight division.
On The Roar Of Singapore I, February 17 2017, he won the Universal Boxing Organization (UBO) Asia-Pacific Cruiserweight title by impressively stopping the much more experienced Satria Antasena from Indonesia in the third round.
Time will tell if Kelleher goes further in boxing or MMA, but one thing is for sure: When you step in the ring with Ben Kelleher, you better be ready for combat!
Taylor “Double Impact” Lapilus is a big name in MMA. He was a major prospect in the UFC, and now Lapilus is doing what Conor McGregor has talked about for so long; he is switching the Octagon with the Boxing Ring!
Lapilus was born and raised in Villepinte, France. In his youth, he played soccer on various levels, but began training in Martial Arts in 2010 as he followed in the footsteps of his older brother, Damien, who is also a professional mixed martial artist.
Two years later, Taylor made his pro-MMA debut, and in 2014 he signed with the UFC where he took his overall MMA record to 11-2.
Now he has signed with Ringstar Management to pursue a career in professional boxing, and it will be very interesting to find out if he can be as successful in boxing as he was in MMA.
One thing is for sure, he will be bringing his exciting style to boxing, and that is always a very good starting point!
His birth-name is Muhammad Meeraj Bin Omar, but in fighting-circles he is known as “Miracle” Mirage Khan. A professional boxer since 2010, Khan has an extensive background in MMA and is active in both combat genres.
A hard puncher with a lengthy reach, Khan is rapidly developing into a genuine contender in the Light Heavyweight division. In his third professional fight, he beat former world title-challenger Komgrit Nanakorn from Thailand, a fighter with far more experience.
In November of 2016, Khan won his first professional title when he captured the Universal Boxing Organization (UBO) Asia-Pacific crown at the Foochow Building in Singapore, with an explosive first-round knockout of normally tough Indonesian Elly Pangaribuan.
On Ringstar Management´s The Roar Of Singapore I card, held on February 17, 2017, he further build on his resume when he dispatched of Australian Jake “The Snake” Gathercole in four rounds to lift the UBO Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight title.
Khan has a clear goal of becoming world champion in the not-to-distant future, and he is focused on gaining experience and improving his skills as he works his way up the latter in one of boxing’s toughest and history-filled divisions.
He hopes that his success in the ring will help make professional boxing more popular in Malaysia, and develop the sport in his native country. He also hopes to be part of a world championship fight in his hometown of Kuala Lumpur in the future.
However, Singapore is like a second home to Khan, and when he fights he is proudly representing both Malaysia and Singapore. The title-collection is growing, but “Miracle” Mirage has a huge appetite for glory, and no plans of slowing down.
Australian veteran Tommy Browne has tried it all in a boxing ring! But that doesn’t mean he is satisfied, or has lost his ambitions. He still has goals in abundance, and plenty of drive to reach them.
Things didn’t start too well for him when he lost his professional debut in 2002 to fellow first-timer Russell Seddon, but he has since more than made up for it, emerged victorious from eleven championship fights, and settled nicely at world level.
In more than fifteen years as a prize-fighter, he has also lost a few big fights, granted, but only against top-class opposition and always in valiant fashion. If you beat Tommy “The Titan” Browne, you must be very, very good!
From Featherweight to Middleweight, Browne is a former State, Australian national, Oceania, Pan-Pacific, Asia-Pacific, Inter-Continental and Youth World Champion, so he really only needs a “senior” world championship to complete his impressive belt-collection.
In 2005, he had two shots at world titles, losing on points to WBC World Featherweight Champion In-jin Chi (29-2-1), in South Korea, and getting stopped late by Indonesian legend Chris John (35-0-1) for the WBA crown.
Originally retiring in 2008, at only twenty-five, he made a comeback in 2013 and has not lost since returning to the ring, going 7-0-1. He is now on a mission to get a third crack at world honours, this time at Super Welterweight, and he plans to make the most of it when it comes.
A professional since 1994, Sirimongkhon Iamthuam, also known as Sirimongkol Singwancha, has had a fantastic career so far.
And it is by no means at the end, as Ringstar Management still sees great potential in the former two-time WBC World Champion.
In 1996, Iamthuam became WBC World Bantamweight Champion, and made three successful defenses of that prestigious title before losing it in 1997.
In 2002, he became a two-time world champion, after capturing the World Boxing Council title three weight classes above, at Super Featherweight. This is a title he defended once before losing it in America to Jesus Chavez to points in 2003.
Since then, he has amazingly won a slew of regional titles at Lightweight, Super Lightweight, Welterweight and Super Welterweight, and is currently on his mission to eventually winning a third world championship.
Following the loss to Chavez in 2003, he has only come up short once, dropping a decision in a Middleweight title fight, but has won forty-seven bouts in that period.
He is now back focusing on the Super Welterweight division.
Very few fighters can move up through the weight classes and still be effective, but Iamthuam is one who has proved that he can. And not just one or two divisions but in his case, seven!
And carrying stunning knockout power in both hands, it is bound to be exciting to follow the next chapter of this extraordinary career.
“The Chosen Wan” - Talk about a ring-monicker that puts high expectations on you. But Singapore's own undefeated hope Muhamad Ridhwan doesn’t mind, he thrives on the challenge and even puts bigger expectations on himself.
He wants to eventually fight in massive arenas in Las Vegas and New York, places where all his heroes and the greats of the sport have fought legendary battles over the years.
As an amateur, Ridhwan, whose full name is Muhamad Ridhwan Bin Ahmad, came close to the top, three times winning bronze in the SEA Games. But close will not be satisfactory for him when he fights professionally, after his debut in February 2016.
Since then, he has brushed aside every opponent, stopping six of seven inside the distance, and won the WBA Asia Super Featherweight title with a stunning second round knockout of former Indonesian champion Waldo Sabu on April 8, 2017.
Asia has been conquered, so now he has his sights set on the World!
After a successful knockout of his Tanzanian opponent Fadhili Majiha in the Roar Of Singapore 2 on May 27, 2017, Ridhwan became Singapore's first very world boxing champion. With his recent signing with Ringstar Management, Ridhwan has set his sights onto larger boxing arenas.
It has been clear from early on that the “The Waikato Warrior” Cairo George, has what it takes to go far in boxing.
At his fifth professional bout, he won the New Zealand National Welterweight title, scoring a ten round unanimous decision over Joshua Maheno. At his seventh bout, he became a two-division national champion after securing the Super Welterweight crown.
Deciding to shift his focus to the Welterweight division, George defended his New Zealand title and added the IBO Asia-Pacific title to his name after a fight on March 2015. He successfully beat undefeated Nort Beauchamp by technical decision.
A year later, George also secured his IBO title, knocking out Australian Daniel Ford in round eight. He now has his eyes set on the world boxing scene.
Cairo George has talent in abundance, a wonderful work ethic in the gym and ring, and enjoys putting up a good show for his fans. In a stacked Welterweight division with stiff competition, it is no surprise that he will be standing with the big boys in years to come.
You don’t get a nickname such as “The Mean Machine” for nothing. Welterweight prospect Keng Fai Hui, from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia is relentless, and some would even say outright cruel when he gets his opponent in trouble.
Much of his fighting experience has been gained in MMA (12-3 record), where he was one of the best in Asia at Featherweight and Lightweight, but insiders in boxing are confident that he can go even further within “The Sweet Science”.
Hui officially made the switch to professional boxing on February 17th 2017 in Singapore, when he won his debut fight by first round knockout over Suthat Somsap from Thailand, also a debutant, at the Foochow Building.
If that performance, and the reaction of the crowd, is anything to go by, we may have a new fan-favorite on our hands. Ambitions are high, and Ringstar Management has great confidence in the talent of one of the most promising boxers to come out of Malaysia in a long time.
As nice outside the ring as he is mean inside it, Keng Fai Hui is someone to look out for in the future!
Coming from Australia, Russell Harrison started practising martial arts at the young age of 8 years old, and has been practicing in one form or another ever since. He transitioned to amateur boxing in his late teens, but his pursuit of Australian football and cricket caused boxing to take the back seat.
Later in life, Harrison returned to boxing, and had his first professional fight in Thailand in 2012 and 2013. Always a fan of the sport, Harrison opened Spartans Boxing Club in Singapore. Harrison's transition to boxing is ultimately to inspire members of his club to be their best and to step out of their comfort zone. He aims to be a role model for his kids and family, and hopes that they can see him box on a large professional stage.
Chase "Hellboy" Haley is definitely one to watch out for! The fighter, currently based in Melbourne Australia, had a stellar career in kickboxing, before shifting his focus to boxing. With 4 victories, 1 by way of knockout and only 1 loss, this New Zealand native will definitely be reaching the top with his determination and hard work!
The current UBO Intercontinental & Asia-Pacific and IBO Oceania Light Heavyweight champion stole the title from defending champion Mirage Khan from Malaysia after 10 rounds of intensive punches at the Roar Of Singapore II on 27th May 2017! The match-up saw the two enduring serious punches and blows before taking the decision to the scorecards. With a rematch happening at the next edition of the Roar Of Singapore III happening on the 20th October 2017, don't miss out on the action!

Tommy Browne experienced a flurry of emotions during his bout at The Roar Of Singapore 2 on the 27th May. The Australian was making his comeback to the ring, two years after the devastating loss of his brother Davey Brown Jr., who passed away after succumbing to injuries sustained during a match.
