Mundine at it again. This time emphatically 'advising' people not to immunize.

"Do not vaccinate your children. Governments bully people into vaccination".

$49.95 on Main Event

A card headed by an Aussie title fight and a month out still full of TBA opponents. So most likely some trash imports.

I wish well for Tim and hope his star continues to rise. But apart from that, this being on PPV, well only positive I can say about it is at least they are full time boxers and not NRL players. Outside of that it's a joke!!

Edit: The fact Hodges has to be named on the main promo pic for the event as a selling point just furthers the joke of it..
Though I noticed Jack Brubaker is fighting Cameron Hammond on the card. That should be interesting.

Agree it is hardly value for money, but remember Mundine's early fights were PPV and some of those were absolutely atrocious. As were the undercards.

I was far to young to be aware of pay per view and all that stuff when he started out.
Though I can imagine I would have been just as outraged back then if I was.

'Straya, cunt.
Bendigo is also a regional hub not too far away from Melbourne, this, coupled with the new stadium and perhaps a TV deal (not necessarily ppv) make it an attractive place to hold larger fights, Bendigo is a decent ‘boxing town’ as far as Australia goes, with a couple of decent boxing gyms run by former team Australian Olympic boxing coaches and possibly the city of Bendigo is contributing money to subsidise these fights, too.
I imagine Lynden Hosking is promoting it, last year he promoted Andrew Maloney vs Luis Concepcion with Tim Tszyu as co-main event.
I might look into going to this, Bendigo apparently is home to one of Australia’s top Chinese restaurants so might slip away for the weekend with the missus...

According to BoxRec, 'Big' Bob Mirovic is pulling the gloves back on in July.

53 year old Mirovic is matched against the nearly 49 year old Mosese Sorovi.

Geez!! I would be against either one of these blokes fighting but at least they are both completely past it and hopefully won't hurt each other.

Can't imagine it's going to be an exciting fight though.
