Triple M's Dave Noonan Show brought Luke 'Action' Jackson head to head with Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman to see if the Tassie Government would support a major fight in the state.

Hot on the heels of the Hobart boxing champ defeating Mexican fighter Humberto de Santiago at Hobart’s City Hall on the weekend, Jackson now has his eye on a world title bout against Oscar Valdez.

Jackson defended his WBO Oriental featherweight title in Hobart with a unanimous points decision win over the 10 rounds, putting him 15-0 wins professionally, and he'd love the support of the state government for a major bout in Tasmania. 

Listen to Luke Jackson put the question to the Tasmanian Premier on Triple M's Dave Noonan Show
