Mobile phone footage of Danny Green-Anthony Mundine street fight saves man from murder conviction

Mobile phone footage of a fatal street fight after Green-Mundine fight has saved a young Perth man from being wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to life in jail.

Jordan Peter Clarke, 24, spent more than eight months in custody after being charged with the murder of 37-year-old Diego Hulton, who died after a brawl in the car park of an Ellenbrook pub in February 2017.

The pub in Perth's north had been showing the boxing match in Adelaide between Anthony Mundine and Danny Green.

Terrible for what went down but a good news story in the end for that bloke.

Fuck imagine looking at being locked up forever for something you didn’t do. Even more so because whoever kicked him wouldn’t own up and left you to rot

Jason Moloney :

“Cesar Ramirez is no joke, he holds a WBC title currently, he can punch and he has pushed top class fighters like Ryan Burnett so he is an opponent not to be overlooked and I certainly won’t be overlooking him.

“I’m expecting to win of course, but I’m looking to show that I’m world class fighter who is a world champion in waiting on June 15 and I believe I will.”

Kiwi heavyweight Junior Fa will be looking to progress to 18-0 when he takes on US journeyman Dominick Guinn in Florida on June 28.

The now 44 year old Guinn has been in with some good opposition and never been knocked out in his 48 fight career.

Tim Tszyu will likely be heading off to the Philippines to spar Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao normally uses George Kambosos but he is unavailable.

Agreed, great fighter, could have been world champ under a different coach/in another country but he’s fighting out of his weight division and Father Time called enough a while ago.

This Whately fellow any good, I was thinking of going to that show but like fuck am I going to pay rediculous money to see a show headlined by a four fight novice against a 48 y.o. 18 kg above his ideal weight, with a shit undercard?

Just watched it, Victor still dangerous and too tough for his own good, all things considered though, hard to tell much about Whately going by that. I think it was $150 a ticket to that show.
Yeah, it looked like a shit card. Gave no consideration to going even though the name of the venue - The Timber Yard, Port Melbourne - had me fascinated.
