Jeff Horn is going to keep on trucking along in his career and will stick with Glen Rushton.
Plans on fighting again before the year is out.

I’m ok with him continuing on. Mixed feelings about him staying with Rushton. Don’t agree with him returning as early as this year
I think Horn should retire.

He says it isn't about the money and that he doesn't want to go out on that loss against Zerafa.

But if Horn fights again this year it will have to be against a very beatable opponent because that left eye of his is going to take some healing.

Maybe he does.. But I think he's got a few more wins in him.

They won't come from elite competition but he can get at least an opponent of reasonable quality to beat maybe for a region type title somewhere and go out on a win.

Horn has won his world title. Logged his greatest win - against Manny Pacquiao - and by his own admission, isn't in it for the money any more, having already made his millions.

So all that's left is ensuring he leaves the sport without getting messed up - and if he really feels he has to - going out with a win.

Tim Tszyu has to be on Horn's list as would Zerafa who apparently would insist on any return being at middleweight. Ideally for Horn my impression is that if he could beat those two he would retire a happy man.

Tszyu is the more winnable fight for him.
He'll never beat Zerafa at middleweight. Zerafa KO'd him once, he'd do it again.

Light Middle might be better and Tszyu is less tested than Zerafa

Agree but Zerafa will insist on middleweight if he has half a brain.

Couple part time/new will be anything boxers with their names all across the poster, probably getting paid more than everyone else on the card.

Never mind that legit interim world title fight tacked on at the bottom though :verysad
I wouldn't be surprised if this goes close to selling out Margaret Court Arena. Believe it holds about 7,500.

Just a pity that I suspect it is a money grab on the part of Hall and he won't have allowed himself the time or work for anything like an ideal preparation.

Lucas Browne looked set to fight Bowie Tapou later in the year - perhaps on Tim Tszyu's next card - but word is Tapou has retired.

Instead Browne finds himself matched against a 45 year old Argentinian with tattoos all over his face, in November.

They are only going to set Cbus Stadium up for half capacity.
Hmm fair enough.
I'm still sceptical about it. I don't think being in such a large open space even set for half capacity is going to be a big atmosphere.

Funny enough though, I'm not really overly interested in the fight but it is looking like I may be around the goldie around when it goes down so am considering going along if tickets are cheap enough.
