So far the Tsyzu VS Camilleri stands as;

Tim Tszyu VS Joel Camilleri - Aus Super Welterweight Title
Jai Opetaia VS Abraham Tabul
Jack Brubaker VS Adam Kaoullas - WBA Welterweight Oceania Title
Chernenka Johnson VS Kirit (literally the only name for her listed)
Justin Hodges VS TBA
Kyron Dryden VS TBA
Pouono Lopeti VS TBA

Still 10000000% worth a $49.95 PPV :bart

In comparison to the Canelo VS Jacobs card which is also $49.95
Canelo VS Jacobs - IBF, WBA, WBC Middleweight Titles
John Ryder VS Bilal Akkawy - Interim WBA Super Middleweight
Vergil ortiz Jr VS Mauricio Herrera
Lamont Roach VS Jonathon Oquendo - WBO International and WBO NABO Super Featherweight
Sadam Ali VS Anthony Young - WBC US Silver Welterweight

Why would any of us pay for the garbage on Sunday? A middleweight unification and some former world champs, an Aussie fighting for an interim world title when in 2 weeks we can get the Aussie Middleweight title fight on with a TBA card and a bunch of unproven/unknown domestic fighters! :rolleyes


The lack of media coverage given to Bilal Akkawy's fight in comparison to the Tsyzu fight is complete bullshit!!!!

Yeah, I don't think Ryder-Akkawy is even going to be telecast.

Former Olympian & Commonwealth Games boxer Daniel Lewis is being spoken about in glowing terms, even though he has thus far only had the one pro fight.

He is already signed to Top Rank, in a 3 fight deal, and Bob Arum says '' Everyone is raving about Lewis' talent.

Lewis' next fight - and his first with Top Rank - in on the 28th of June in San Diego.

Must admit my first reactions after reading that about Lewis were, ‘shit here we go again, another over hyped unproven Aussie about to get embarrassed’

Really hope I am wrong

Lewis is far more suited to the pros. He is vicious to the body but defensively very liable (as we saw in the Olympics). I think making the move overseas will be good, he already trained with Danny Jacobs in the lead up to the Canelo fight.

I think Tszyu will be a decent enough fringe contender. He has similar technique but seems to lack the sleeping pill in the right hand that his old man had.

Still trash. No interest in any of the fights.
Hope the PPV card is a massive flop

'Straya, cunt.
I’ve had a lot to do with Adam Kaoullas, known him since he was 15, he was considered an elite amateur and is now training under Sam Soliman, I don’t think he is ready for this fight and I reckon his current team thought the same, knowing the fight game, they wouldn’t have even agreed to the fight yet it was advertised.

Anyhow, in protest of this ppv card I haven’t even bothered going to a pub to watch this, it’ll be W-L all the way down the list on boxrec tomorrow.
