What are we thinking for this one?
Could be a tfight for Lewis.

I see a lot of comments just saying for Lewis to work the body. Might be trickier said than done though.

Will be interesting to see if Fundora can shorten his punches and fight on the inside is Lewis gets there.

Haven’t seen much of anything of Fundora
It just looks ridiculous the two of them together. There are a few clips of Fundora on Youtube. Here's one against a 6 ft 2 inch opponent who managed a draw with him :

:patsch

Mundine is nearly 45 and shot to the shithouse. Just wish he would announce his retirement while he can still put 2 words together.

The only Fundora fight I've seen showed that he could fight on the inside but gee if he does in this one he's going to have to punch downwards.

The irony is Lewis' opponent is nearly as tall as Fury.

I think it could be a tough day in the office for Lewis.
I'm backing I'm for the upset but would have to think the other bloke will be the favourite.

It will do wonders for his career is Lewis can come away with the chicken dinner though. Beating the bloke who's almost the size of Fury on the massive platform Fury and Wilder are gonna give him will be a big boost!

Saw some odds somewhere for the fight and Lewis is a long outsider. Fingers crossed he can pull the upset.

Tough night at the office for Daniel Lewis.
He had a few moments, I think the 97-93 and 98-92 cards were about right. 99-91 short changed him. I think he at least picked up 2 rounds.

Overall though went somewhat as could be expected. Lewis had his moments but couldn’t consistently close the gap to be in range. I thought he didn’t do a great job cutting the ring off too and a lot of the times he got Fundora on the ropes he let him off a bit to easy.

Though on the flip side, Fundora is beatable! For a big dude he had a shit jab and didn’t seem to have overwhelming power. It’s different levels at the moment but a dude like Hurd would do a demolition job on him

Lewis' biggest problem seemed to be his inability to string effective punches together but credit to Fundora who was invariably able to skip out of range when tagged, also when Lewis got in close he was not as effective as he needed to be. Good fight, what now for Lewis?

It’s odd that Horn draws so much hate though.
He’s mostly been pretty quiet and respectful.

almost seems you can’t win with Aussie fans. Loud, brash and cocky Mundine was hated by many. Just about the polar opposite in Horn seems to draw a lot of negatives as well
its more that horn's biggest win was against an old manny, and he almost lost in the 9th round.

then suddenly jeff horn becomes this superstar.

good win and all, but everyone went a little nuts after that.

tszyu's name has a lot to do with it too, let's be honest.

so those are the reasons i believe that tszyu is the public favourite.

but bookies are in the business of making money.

so they would not make tszyu favourite if they honestly thought horn was better.

i can't wait to see this fight :good

Any word on why Taylah Roberston and Jack Bowen decided to go pro rather than chase the Olympics this year? I would've thought they'd almost be locked in to make the Aus team.

Taylah looked good on debut though seems to have quick hands. Super over matched opponent and a few cheeky shots after the other bird had hit the deck though.

Only skimmed Jacks fight so far but he is looking sound.

Lucas Browne's opponent Otto Wallin has reportedly suffered a foot injury and pulled out of their March 28th fight.

The replacement opponent is 20-0-1 Russian Apti Davtaev.

Davtaev looks limited but has 19 KOs and tends to stop them early. Hard to see this going 10 rounds.

Joseph Parker's thoughts going into his fight this weekend :

Q : What do you know about Shawndell Terell Winters, your opponent Saturday night?

Out of the 15 fights he has had, 12 by stoppage, a little bit of pop in his hands. I know he has a lot of confidence, he wouldn’t have taken this fight, if he didn’t think he would win. So, he is going to come with a lot of confidence, I’m looking forward to the challenge on what he is going to bring.

Q: When do you hope to be fighting for a title again?

If everything goes well Saturday, I want to fight, I want to keep busy. I want to fight 3 times this year. At the end of the year, hopefully for a title, if not, next year for a title.

Q : What big name out there would you like to fight next?

Anyone in the top 5, I don’t care who it is, give me anyone. I’m ready.
