That’s a good idea, I know @DB Cooper keeps swerving the idea but @VinoVeritas is up for a beer at the fights more often than not, @Mattress may be keen depending on location and @Innocent Bystander is an Aussie too, in fact I think he’s a Victorian.
I'm not overly active in the forums but I read a lot more on here than I post. So it would probably only make sense to put a face to the screen names if the option presented itself.

Who knows though we might all think each of us is a wanker in real life hahah

“Michael Zerafa has talked me down, Mundine did the same. Look what happened to him,” Horn told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“He’s smug and arrogant when I’ve seen him, the way he chews gum in your face, the way he talks, the way he says I can’t box and he’s going to knock me out. There are a few things that do get under my skin. It all comes down to fight night. I never say I’ll knock people out…but it would be good to land some punches on him!”

While it's all still pretty civil, Jeff seems to be sliding more into being more vocal about his position and being the dominant Aussie.

I like this from him. He's always seemed a like a sound bloke but he's not very interesting outside of the ring. Bit more of this type of stuff is welcomed addition

I agree. A bit more selling himself and selling his fights won't do Jeff Horn any harm at all.

”Horn beat Pacquiao at welterweight and he beat Mundine who’s 10 years past his prime,” said Zerafa. “I’m bigger, faster, stronger and younger. I’m a cleaner boxer with better timing and reach. Horn won’t be able to bully me".

“I want to get back overseas for more big fights so this win is vital. Jeff is going to struggle with my style, he won’t be able to negate my jab and he won’t be able to walk me down, I’m too strong.”

“I’m going to once again struggle without having a promoter with the judges in his pocket, first taste of any power and I’ll get on my bike for the rest of the fight”

There is a 30 minute preview of Horn v Zerafa called FIGHTING WORDS on Fox Sports 507 tonight (Wednesday) at 6pm and I think they are playing it again at 8:30pm (both times are AEST).

I believe the WBO have elevated Liam Paro to #1 contender at 140 pounds.

The WBO champion at 140 is Jose Carlos Ramirez.

Fellas this year I’ve been to 2 kickboxing/muay Thai events, ufc234 and 243 next month. I’ve got tickets for me and my boy for Australia vs Japan kykoshan karate this Saturday.
No boxing yet this year but you never know.

I believe Brock Jarvis and Jayde Mitchell will both be on the same card later on in the year.

It will likely be in Melbourne but in any case I think it will be televised on Fox.

“I’ve wanted this fight over a year now. Parker the ‘Ozzie kangaroo’ fled for the bush once already this year. He complained he didn’t have enough time to prepare,” Chisora said.

Arum has mentioned Lomachenko's and George Kambosos' names in the same sentence :

Funny, people said Pacquiao-Horn would never happen.
Stranger things have happened and you're 100% right about how no one believed Horn VS Pacquaio would happen until it did.

But this one is different. It's a complete and utter mismatch and would be a shocking fight for Loma
