What happened to the Aussie forum?

I still see it there but all the threads are gone.
Seems we've lost our own space and have been merged into the WBF
Just a different way of accessing it really.

Go to World Forum and at the top is the link - just click on the yellow button.

The advantage is, not only can you still get the list of Aussie posts as a single screen, they also appear in the World Forum list. So hopefully more posters will post in those threads than previously.

Ah right.
Positive outcomes then.

Gallen-Hopoate not happening. Gallen will instead fight early next year. Different opponent.
Probably for the best. Hoppa isnt in it anymore, way too old and his last showings werent much to look at. 5 years ago .....

If Gallen wants to prove himself against old fighter/footy player they should maybe look at Solomon Haumono

I just had confirmation that Fox Sports 503 will show Demsey McKean on the Paro vs Tlatlik card on Saturday. I've seen a few of his fights on YT but was wondering what the view was from Australia on this prospect.

From what I have seen of McKean he is raw and his biggest asset is really his size. He is only 28. Young for a heavyweight. So he may well develop.

McKean's fight tomorrow is against former super middleweight Victor Oganov. Oganov was a pretty tough guy in his day, but he is 42 years old and 5ft 9. McKean is 6ft 6.

Is there much buzz about him? Is he seen as as good a prospect as Joe Goodall?

Lucas Browne :

“I’d like everyone to remember that I’m fighting November 24th in New Zealand against Junior Pati.

“So there’s no let’s go over to the UK to fight Allen or Price in December. I’m fighting in November. So it’s not going to happen.

“The one fight that I do want is (Adam) Kownacki. I’d much rather go over to America to fight Kownacki as that would be a much better fight for the fans.

“I think they’d love that fight a lot more in January after this New Zealand fight.

“There was a lot of talk about Dave Allen and now David Price wants to shoot his mouth off. But my personal preference would be Kownacki.

“Let’s see how it all works out because I’ve got a fight to deal with first and I never look past anyone” he concluded.

Sakio Bika hasn't fought for about a year. But there is talk he is about to announce a ring return.
