Bartender Boxing sydney




“Having worked in the Sydney bar scene for many years from the early 90’s, David Spanton and I go back to the beginning of Bartender Magazine. When he expressed excitement around our platform and consequently offered his support on the launch of Bartender Boxing in Sydney during Bar Week, well we pounced on the opportunity to fast-track our arrival into Australia.

Being based in LA, the first step was to find the right person to represent and manage Bartender Boxing in Australia and create an unforgettable event for our organization during Bar Week. That was easy as Marky Tarrant and I first worked together at Middle Bar, Sydney in early 2000. Mark has a wealth of experience in the industry and in Boxing and Muay Thai. Mark has been working tirelessly with Combat Sports Australia and the Amateur Boxing league to get the program and the event sanctioned and ready for Bar Week.” — Raj Nagra, founder
