WELCOME TO THE AUSSIE & KIWI FORUM

The Aussie forum was started by Australian posters Spider (later renamed DB Cooper) and Sox. The first Australian moderator of the forum was bruiserh89.

The forum became the Aussie & Kiwi Forum in late May 2017.

One of our biggest contributors stiflers mum unfortunately passed away in 2018. RIP.

PUB CHAT

Pub Chat is basically the LOUNGE of the Aussie & Kiwi Forum.

Aussie or otherwise feel free to contribute here.

I don't make the rules. But I'm sure if you try hard enough to overstep the mark you'll get dealt with.

Yew, i can't wait for geale and barker myself, i see a cracker of a fight with a lot of momentum shifts!
as for lucas browne, i see him disposing of towers pretty quickly with that sneakily fast right hand of his and moving onto better things, he deserves it imo.
Mick gatto seems to just be scrambling for public attention these days, i think he might just want to sell more books.

Geale has a real shot at becoming our best ever (Australian born) fighter if he goes on to beat Martinez, which I think is a very real possibility based on the Murray fight. We've got some good up and coming fighters like Damian Hooper and Wild Will.

Best thread ever!
Aussie Aussie Aussie, OI OI OI. :bbb

Enough of that shit. :hey

Geale is a breath of fresh air for us folk down under, a real peoples champ.
He has the skills, the dedication, and great persona to do well.
His fight against Barker will be a decent old war, one which I feel Daniel will come out on top in a 8-4 or thereabouts decision.

Browne is doing well, but I doubt he'll ever be top 10 material.
Would like to see him fight Leapia to see where he's at.

Bit silly bringing EvanFields out.


Was at the local pro-am last week, saw Gairy St Clair and Joel Brunker fight.
Gairy looked sharp getting a near shutout over 6.
Joel finished the job in 4.

Also entered a thing called 'box & burn' at the local, a 10 week fitness thing to lose weight for the fatties.
I'm doing it just for fun really (I'm not fat) - Gairy St Clair is one of the coaches, and Johhny Lewis was also there last night.
It's a pretty good night, with 1k of prize money to be had for the person who loses the most weight.

I think Geale vs Barker goes the distance, with Geale outworking him and hopefully getting the nod.

Towers won't have fought for a year by the time Browne vs Towers comes around, and that's gotta be a factor IMO.

The Gatto question is a complex one. It's quite understandable with his 'colourful' past the Government would be concerned. But from a boxing point of view he has plenty to offer, and contacts enough to fill stadiums and finance big fights.

Checking in.

I'm not excited about Gatto coming in. If he can bring a few decent fights to Aus then he's doing better then most.

Good to see we have aroused the koala.

Geale is a great talent and taking all before him. It looks like his timing might be good too because Martinez might be just starting to fall away a bit. Golovkin is another matter though.

What's the general feeling of Lucas Browne, lads?

I know [MENTION=59]Lilo[/MENTION] likes the guy, and I had him on facebook for ages without really realising who he was, then suddenly there are articles up on here about him and I was made up that I knew of him, and before the bandwagon.

Seen clips on youtube, and while he's not technically fantastic, he does seem to have a fighters instincts.

He's being driven well, not trying to climb too fast, but testing the waters.
He can bang, but like you said, not technically great.

As I said above, I don't think he'll get to genuine top 10.

Another HW on our turf who could do very well is Banging Ben Edwards.
He's done well in the kickboxing scene, and not too shabby at all at boxing.
1st round KO in his first 3 fights, then a draw with Michael Kirby in his 4th, going 10 rounds.
He has some decent skills, it's only his conditioning that that may be a worry, but he seems to think it's not.

Written a few articles/blogs on Lucas Browne and I really think he has the tools to take on a world title shot within the next 18 months. He needs though IMO to move to Europe to up his profile. De Mori has done it, however I would hope Lucas would fight better than Mark...

As you probably would have seen from his facebook Browne started out as a kickboxer, and has only been a pro boxer for about 3 years. He is still on a fairly sharp learning curve IMO, but has learnt already to pace himself better and be more patient waiting for the opening to land that big right mitt of his.

I like watching Browne, and for a 6ft 4 in, 260 pound, tattoo covered behemoth he comes across as relatable and perhaps surprisingly intelligent guy.

Banging Benny Edwards is an interesting one. Unfortunately K1 fighting offers him greater opportunities and importantly higher reward. He has shown in his brief boxing career that he can punch with devastating power though. He was set to fight Shane Tilyard - the guy who fought Kimbo Slice - for the national heavyweight title some time ago. But the fight fell through.

Glad to see you've come across John - and that was quick work, we were only talking about it an hour or two ago.

I know you are a keen fan of Browne, as you know I am not a keen fan of Mark. Or more particularly the way Mark goes about his boxing career.

Paste in some of your articles on Browne too mate. There will be people here that may not have seen them.
