You said it man, TC pretty much single handedly tore the aussie forum down with his bullshit.
Absolutely he did. Need to keep him away from here at all costs.

Soon he'll be arguing with himself over ESB. :lol:

2013: A keep busy KO1 - Toney - Towers - Leapai - Johnson would be an excellent 2013. If I were his manager I'd be really careful with the Johnson fight who is actually pretty handy when he fancies it (which he would against Browne).

I don't think anyone is saying he's going to be world class but he'll make some interesting fringe fights. Definitely.
I like the look of Towers and Leapai to follow, but think a spoiler like 'Kingpin' Johnson is the last thing Browne needs at this stage. Plenty of other heavyweights around that stylistically suit him far better.

Mick gatto seems to just be scrambling for public attention these days, i think he might just want to sell more books.
I read Gatto's book and he has certainly lived an interesting life. He is a survivor. There's no question about that.

As far as his boxing input goes, he's a guy who can put bums on seats. If he says he can get Holyfield here later this year he probably will. Just a pity Holyfield is 50 and not 40. I can see Browne fighting Holyfield in Melbourne in front of a large crowd.

Hey all. Hope you are all well. Been a bit out of touch with boxing, Aussie or otherwise. Last fight i saw was the Golovkin one with Ishida. Didn't even realise thst Vlad had fought recently. Missed the Mayweather and Alvarez fights. Spewing!

Great to see you Duke. In fact you beat the rest of us here by about a year. It was a waste of me trying to recruit you here the other day wasn't it :lol:

I'm actually going to give the heads up about this place to some of the fellas that I'm still in contact with that got sick of the ESB situation, namely Perfect Jet, Justhavenago and Ipswich Express. Not sure whether it will make the difference to them but it was the personal attacks from the likes of TC that made them move on. I appreciated their input and thought it was a shame.

Jeff Fenech and Lionel Rose would slap you for saying that btw:good
Without a doubt, both Fenech and Rose are well above Geale right now, but if Geale goes on to beat Martinez and becomes the IBF, WBC and The Ring MW champion aka The Undisputed MW champion, he could very well be considered better.

That cess pit of an Aussie forum most of us have turned our back on was a shame, and we all know why.

This one will be what we make of it, and day one has been a good one IMO.

Fenech & Rose aren't just Australian ATG level. they are IBHOF quality. Geale has a lot of work ahead to reach those two. But he's already surpassed the accomplishments of most other Aussie born fighters.

Should he get past Michael Grant at the weekend, then a fight Vs Carlos Takam would be an interesting one for Browne.
I have to admit I had to look Takam up. Now that I have I think it would depend on Grant getting the win for sure, otherwise we're just looking at a resume with a UD against the aged Botha and a loss to Gregory Tony!

I think the Leapai fight will be up next if he beats Towers.

Agree Takam doesn't have the best resume but he's African champion and fights out of France. Staying in Aus is not helping Lucas' career in my opinion. He needs European exposure.

It's a shame Geale/Barker is in America. With the Ashes coming up, there was a great opportunity for the fight to be held in either Britain or Australia later in the year. Australia needs more big fights over there, for sure, so if Geale beats Barker, I hope he has enough bargaining power to take the big names over there to fight him.

There is the Australia vs England & Ashes aspect, but the exposure Geale & Barker could get in the USA is probably worth foregoing that.
