Kiwi heavyweight Patrick Mailata will make his professional debut on November 2nd in Auckland.

Mailata was the bronze medalist at the 2018 commonwealth games. According to Boxrec he is 6ft 5 and nearly 24.

I am told he has some power but needs some work.

I didn’t even know he was fighting to be honest

Browne not impressive by most reports. Will have a look at it for myself when I get a chance.

So is Spence VS Garica being shown here?? I haven’t seen anything on mainevent and so far can’t find in the Foxtel guide.

Though I can see Tevin Farmer’s fight is being televised. Making his 3rd defense since he beat Dib in August last year!! Geez it’s good to see such an active champ!!

Zac Dunn 27-1 fights German Patrick Rokohl 16-0 on April 5th, in Melbourne.

Jayde Mitchell is very keen to fight Dunn after that.

Tim Tszyu claims he will be making a big announcement this week. It has been reported he has been in talks with Top Rank. Perhaps he is about to ink something with them?

Michael Zerafa needs to get back on the winner's list after what was a pretty honest performance in losing to Kel Brook in the UK.

But fighting Les Sherrington next just makes little sense, and even less sense if you are Les.

Not sure what Sherro is up to? I think I remember reading him say he wanted to get to 50 fights. Well he's done that. But these days he gets stopped by just about everyone.

Zerafa-Sherrington is on the Soliman-Lucas card.

I think his 'big announcement' was to do with signing with a new promoter.
Meh... that's not very big or exciting either.
Who is No Limit Management? What have they done in the boxing world?

If his big announcement is "I've signed with X Y Z and my next fight is Joel Camilleri for the Aussie title"...... pass.

That being said though. I will consider going to watch the fight live haha.
