On Friday November 20th, Victorian Promoter of the Year Peter Maniatis will present an excellent six-fight card billed as the "Elite Cranes Cup". The fight night will take place at the Melbourne's traditional home of championship boxing, Malvern Town Hall.

Headlining the excellent top to bottom card will be Shannon "The Man" McMahon who will face local rival Eddie "Psycho" Delic in a matchup that looks set to be one of the best local fights of the year. The highly credited local warriors have both held the Australian Title at separate times and will both be looking to take that one step further when they fight for the vacant WBF Intercontinental light-middleweight title. A win for either fighter will boost their stocks dramatically as some of the previous title holders of the WBF Intercontinental title include the undefeated former IBF middleweight world champion Arthur Abraham as well as the undefeated current Commonwealth and British light-welterweight champion Ajose Olusegan.

Both Delic and McMahon are coming off very credible and highly praised performances against the world rated WBO #9 Ryan Waters. Delic lost a very close points decision earlier in the year to Waters, whereas McMahon lost to Waters via a very controversial stoppage which McMahon was winning on all three judges scorecards.

The semi-main event will be a historic event as highly touted prospect Heath "The Heat" Ellis attempts to become one of only two Australians to currently hold more than one version of an Asian regional title. Ellis will take on highly rated Thai prospect Denkamol "Krabi Kid" Kiatchanachai. Over recent months a war of words has taken place between the two camps in a fight that has been scheduled to take place for over six months.

Ellis and Kiatchanachai were originally booked in to fight for the IBO World Youth welterweight title, however after Ellis injured his bicep during training the fight had to be postponed. Up for grabs will be Ellis' IBF Pan Pacific welterweight title as well as the interim WBC Asian Boxing Council and PABA welterweight titles.

If Ellis is successful, he will not only be the unified champion of Asia but he will also be the first Australian to win the prestigious WBC Asian Boxing Council title in its glorious twenty-eight year history.

Also on the card will be a Victorian title double-header.

The first of the two will pit the recently returned and former champion Nick Lantouris up against defending champion Joe D'Angelo in a very interesting matchup between two very classy but aged warriors.

The second Victorian title fight will feature The Contender Australia's Pradeep Singhagainst respected Kiwi Lee Oti. In his professional career so far, Singh has previously held the OPBF and PABA middleweight titles and will look at this fight as a springboard to more potentially big matchups between some of the best fighters in Australasia. In one of Oti's more recent fights, he dropped a very competitive points decision to two-time world title challenger Rob Medley in a very exciting contest.

Opening up the night will be two very entertaining fights between pro debutants Terry Tzouramanis and Seb Harris as well as Jaimie Bogavic who will be making his pro debut against the always tough Jamie Middleton.
