Anyone know the purses for the fight last night?
I read in the Melbourne Herald Sun that Gallen got $400,000 and Hunt 500,000 which just blew me away. Where would all the money have come from us after Tszyu was paid?

Didn't see anywhere what Tszyu was making. Nor Morgan. But Zerafa said he wasn't offered enough.

Mundine can't speak fluently any more and has that blank look in his eyes so characteristic of punch drunk fighters. If he is passed medically fit for this fight I want to know who the doctor is so I can make a point of never, ever using his services.

Man I’m not even going to bother giving that video another single view on YouTube.

Trash ass fight. Shouldn’t happen. Zerafa and Choc have both proven they are delusional about their standing in the sport

Willis Meehan 9-0 returns to the ring on February 27th at the Melbourne Pavilion against Hunter Sam 11-14-3.

Hunter Sam hasn't had a win for about 6 years but credit to him for the quality of opposition he has been facing. He has fought the who's who of Aust/NZ heavyweights.

Kane Watts is also listed on the bill. Though against TBA at this stage.

Surely Mundine doesn’t offer much either.

Wasn’t he offered a couple hundred grand? Who’s he to knock that back at this point.

Him VS Choc isn’t gonna be a big cash fight either
G'day @Super_Fly_Sam. Back from 2 weeks up on the VIC/NSW border.

Looks like Zerafa-Mundine is going to happen. Shit fight. In fact it is a pretty shitty card all-round.

Caparelo-Quninlan may off something? But I think Renold is shot.


Pity, because I really enjoyed going to Bendigo for the first Horn-Zerafa fight. But this looks like a waste of time and money.

On the sad news front, former Aussie middleweight Leroy Brown has passed away at only 32. His cause of death is unknown at this stage.



Leroy, who fought out of Narooma, retired in 2014 with a pro record of 11-6-2. His biggest fight was against Dennis Hogan for the Australian middleweight title.

Brown also fought Dwight Ritchie, who is also sadly no longer with us.
