BOXING NEWS: Ring Announcer Chris Korner to Hang Up the Microphone

 

Ring Announcer to Hang Up the Microphone

Popular Perth boxing ring announcer, Chris Korner is hanging up his microphone but not without one last hurrah. Chris’s last Perth gig will be the WBC Muay Thai International Titles on Saturday May 9th at the WA Italian Club in North Perth.

Chris first started calling boxing and martial arts bouts in 2003 and has become a popular and familiar face in recent years at local Perth venues like the Embassy Ballroom, Greek Hellenic and Italian Clubs. Chris followed up his ring announcing by launching and hosting WA’s first boxing radio show in 2004 on station SportFM.  

Chris’s knowledge of the boxing game and polished voice landed him the choice role as the Fox Sports TV commentator in the WA based film “Two Fists One Heart” which was released in March 2009 to excellent reviews. Since then Chris has based himself in Sydney where he has been pursuing his acting and media career which included a role in Underbelly which aired on April 20. Chris’s other credits include a Farmer Wants a Wife, Home and Away, East West 101 plus several commercials and voice overs

Chris is stepping back from the boxing scene in WA but will still be involved on the East Coast while he pursues acting and media opportunities in Sydney.  

“I have loved every minute of my ring announcing here in WA and have learned so much from it. I have met some wonderful people and made some life long friends. I am looking forward to the 9th of May at the Italian Club so I can thank everyone properly then” he said.

Chris nominates interviewing and working alongside some of the greats in the game as the highlight of his ring announcing career. “I interviewed the late great George Grljusich on my SportFM show about his career and later received a lot of encouragement from him shortly before his death. He is the master when it comes to all things boxing so it was very touching for him to be so supportive of my career”. “Also being asked by the man himself, Anthony Mundine’s to host his tribute night in 2005 was a great honour”.
