So you're telling me, that there is an Australian heavy weight who played pro footy and he's not gonna be good enough to be champ?
Not even Team Mundine and Johnny Lewis are saying he will be??

What's going on here?!
Watched him train and hes a total amateur. Very rough. Like most footballers with no experience they have to start from the bottom. I used to hate on this sort of thing but good on them having a go - applies to anyone really

Big Swannies fan here so Ive got time fir Mumford

I don't think big Mummy has been training long and we saw in the video how raw he looked. But he has got power and that's a start.

Mummy strikes me as a guy prepared to work at it and improve. Hope he wins a few.

I get ya..

I was just joking about how so often it seemed Team Mundine and Johnny Lewis wouldn't shut up about these footy cross overs and how good they were.
Sonny Bill, Barry Hall, John Hopoate, Quade Cooper were all spruked as being the next best thing since sliced bread by these guys.

Huge surprise at only 28.

Good luck to him. Far too many hang around for too long.
I was surprised to see it as well. I know he just lost his title but he still could make some great fights around Aus even if he were to never make it beyond top domestic, fridge international type level.

Though better to get out one fight to early than one to late.

Heard he might have some injury concerns. Hands?

"Boxing showed me fucking unbelievable highs that are short-lived. Forever more valuable is the experience that I gained and lessons I was taught on the journey to these milestones".

"I have lost all drive and desire to my own efforts in the sport and in discovering this decided now is the time to accept what I had refused to come to terms with months ago".

That was actually quite a good statement.
Before reading it I thought perhaps it was the monetary side not being enough to really make a living out of it and sounds like it was a big part after reading.

Sounds a lot like the statement Sam Ah See gave when he decided to hang them up.

Doesn't at all sound like he had lost passion for the sport itself but everything else around it. The business of it all.

It's such a shame for us as fans to see these talents hang them up before we can ever witness their full ability. Especially when it seems like it's not the sport itself pushing them out.

George Kambosos earns second round stoppage on Pacquiao-Matthysse undercard in Kuala Lumpur


Sydney boxer George 'Ferocious' Kambosos has improved his record to 15-0 with a second-round TKO win over Filipino JR Magboo on the undercard to Manny Pacquiao's win over Lucas Matthysse in Kuala Lumpur.
Kambosos, who has been Pacquiao's main sparring partner for his last two fight camps, was personally asked by the boxing legend to appear on the undercard.

The 25-year-old knocked down his opponent once in the first round, and finished the job with a vicious hook to the body in the second.
Signed to American promoter Lou di Bella's promotional company, Kambosos made his US debut in May this year, winning the bout in just 110 seconds.

Taller and stronger than his opponent, this was always a 'keep busy' bout for Kambosos, who has plans to fight in America again later this year.
The pair fought after Pacquiao stopped Matthyssein the seventh round, with the Sydneysider barely breaking a sweat.
Magboo was backing up from the outset, and a long left hook floored him midway through the first round. Kambosos' jab established his dominance, and Magboo did well to make it to the bell to end the first frame.
'Ferocious' stalked Magboo around the ring for 20 seconds of the second round before going to the body. The first - a left hook - slowed Magboo down and the Filipino was warned for leading with his head.
With his opponent trapped in the corner, Kambosos landed a right hook which dropped Magboo again.
Now 17-3, Magboo couldn't get back to his feet and was counted out.

That guy with the fat belly and shit tattoos is billed as 'the Hungarian Mike Tyson.' Not surprisingly he has a losing record, and although I haven't seen a result yet, I have little doubt Demori added him to the list of no-hopers he has knocked out.

Hopefully one day one of these circus sideshow level opponents will knock Demori out.
