I don't know how accurate this is or how trust worthy the "trusted sources" are...

But according to this Jeff made a fuck load more money from his career than I would have guessed. About 12.5 million in career earnings.

The people who put those numbers up have better access to information than I do, but I would be surprised if Horn makes $3.1 million from last night.

Hope I'm wrong. I think they deserve every cent they get.

Me too!
I did see another article saying it's Horn $2.1m and Tszyu $350k.

$2.1m is a bit more realistic. But who knows.

Not a small amount either way though.

I think they claimed the purse amounts were Horn $2.1m and Tszyu $350k and then on top of that, they would split the PPV money 60% to Horn and 40% to Tszyu.

I just don't know if there will be that much money available to split up.

I don't how many turned up last night but they were hoping for 16,000. I don't know what the ticket prices were either.

But let's say they had $16,000 there and the average price was say $120 = 16,000 x 120 = $1.92 million. So around $2 million.

Then on top of that there is PPV, advertising, Government handouts.

Perhaps there is that much? But there would be plenty of hands in the till too.

No, unfortunately my source cannot tell me which boxer is going to win otherwise i would be in the Bahamas on my mega cruiser instead of here talking to people on the net. It was worth 50 to see Horn confirm what i had always thought about him, a very ordinary fighter with a limited skill set.
This is the internet man. We are all rich with mega cruisers, trophy wives and giant dicks.

That very ordinary fighter with a limited skill set did very well for himself in the toughest game of all. Very well.

We don't know a lot about who did what in bringing Horn along but certainly several people besides Rushton were significantly involved, particularly in sponsorship and providing training advice and facilities. Plus once Horn started to earn from his fights we don't know how much went to Rushton but check out his real business, he's a money man.

The fault I see in Rushton is that he got Jeff to a level where he could win fights by sheer guts and determination and by taking a lot of punishment but that was it. The Crawford fight clearly showed that more was needed, a lot more, but it was not forthcoming in the form of specialist coaching, particularly for an active defence. Rushton appears to have wanted to keep Jeff for himself, no glory sharing for him. But Jeff was part of this in not wanting to get out of his comfort zone so there is that. Tim has his career to concentrate on without family distractions.

Anyway, Jeff is to be applauded for what he has done for Australian boxing and I hope that he has a comfortable and problem free retirement. What's next Jeff?

Have never claimed to be good at scoring fights and I think most people who claim to be good at it are just kidding themselves. That said, scoring Tszyu-Horn the other night looked pretty straight forward to me.

I think Tszyu won every round. So 8 rounds x 10 points = 80 points for Tszyu.

I think Horn lost every round. Plus he was knocked down twice - once in round 3 and once in round 6. So 6 rounds of 9 points for Horn and 2 rounds of 8 points = 70 points for Horn.

So my scorecard reads Yszyu 80 - Horn 70.

Here's how the official judges scored it :

Chris Condon 80-71 : has scored 7 rounds to Tszyu and 1 round even. No problem with that.

Derek Millman 79-73 : has scored 7 rounds to Tszyu, 2 rounds even and 1 round to Horn. Not sold on that but a decisive gap at least.

Phil Holiday 77-73 : for fuck's sake was he even watching the same fight???

Jeff Fenech not holding back in his criticism of Glenn Rushton.


Fenech can be like a dog with a bone. Relentless. Just like he fought.

That was some sort of performance by Tim. I predicted he would win but not in that sort of manner.

I even heard Paulie Malignaggi predict Tim Tszyu would “go down as the best Australian-born boxer ever”. Now that is a huge prediction when you think about Fenech, Fammo, Rose.

“Was Jeff badly hurt? No. Was he excessively fatigued? No. What reason was there for stopping the fight, other than that he was losing the fight?”


WTF? Was he hurt? was he fatigued? YES!

For fucks sake he'd been down a couple times, was noticeably wincing from the body shots, had been blowing hard for most of the fight, was landing less and less while Tim was beginning to land more and more.

I disagree with the one punch thing. Yes it only takes one punch and at his best Jeff has the power for it but he hadn't really shown much of anything to give the impression he could have landed it.

I kind of can understand the side of it that has been made that Glen was perhaps just trying to remove all doubt and make sure Jeff was ok with the decision. But it's well known most fighters won't stop themselves. Glen should be able to raise himself above that and take matters into his own hands.

Jeff seems to be able to take a lot of head shots but some of those body shots were epic and certainly affected him. Fenech claims that Jeff is overtrained which could have contributed to him running out of puff so quickly too.

The rip Tszyu lands in this exchange has Horn heading to the corner for some breathing space.

How much of Horn training with Rushton would Fenech have actually seen? Not much I suspect.
