I'm a fan.... but there's nothing really happening regarding Choc so nothing to talk about..

I'm all for Horn VS Mundine. As I've said in other threads. Reckon it's an easy night for Horn though.

Time goes by too fast for everybody to remain relevant.
I saw UFC video recently (I think it was Michael Bisping) stating that the majority of today’s UFC fans don’t know that Jose Aldo was a 9 year champion, they only know him as the guy that McGregor knocked out. Also had a fight last week that had very poor ratings. McGregor is quickly going down this path with inactivity.
Basically there is a saturation of sports on TV and there is a 4-5 year cycle between casual-hardcore-casual again unless you can stay relevant in the eyes of the paying public.

Choc still has many fans but I doubt you will find many under 30 years of age, which is the demographic that dominates social media. They have short attention spans.

Big fan of the man. But what has happened to all the other Choc Mundine fans?
Good question. We saw from the poor turn up of Mundine supporters for the Green fight that the bubble has burst. Perhaps the people who used to watch his fights in the hope he would lose have had their fill of Mundine losses by now?

Roll on November.
Naturally you won't be favouring either fighter will you? Just hoping whoever lands the most scoring punches wins.

That's your philosophy isn't it? Or does that all go out the window when Mundine is involved?

Well November has duly rolled on. But you are still conspicuous by your absence. I am guessing you will only return to the conversation if Mundine wins. Or perhaps you will have some cheap excuses to offer if he loses?

Hey Buffy, I wasn't aware we were having a conversation. I have already said in another thread that i thought Choc was shot five years ago.
I tipped Choc to get a reaction from the Green Nut Huggers and in they came. No excuses, just a 43 year old, Shot, weight drained fighter adding
millions to his bank account. Thats Boxing.

You tipped Mundine becuase you thought he would win.

Smoked out, I tipped Mundine on the day the thread was posted and i gave my reasons.
Back pedaling after the event is pure cop out on your part. I know that and more importantly you know that.

No excuses? You manged to fit 3 in the one sentence.

No excuses, just a 43 year old (1), Shot (2), weight drained (3) fighter adding millions to his bank account. Thats Boxing.

Mundine is calling for another shot at Horn..

Way I see it;

1; Horn ignores Mundine to make him irrelevant. Harshest punishment an attention seeker like Mundine could cop.

2; Horn demand Mundine fight and beat another Aussie opponent 1st. (at 70-75kg, who would you pick?)

How much is Mundine living in denial, and about so many things?

Who is gonna give you a rematch after you been KOd in the first?
Joe Bugner, Rick Thornberry. (1st fight) Both became World class or champs.

I think Chocs shot. But … he has beaten a previous opponent before. Horn may well be too much too late. I think a 30yo Mundine schools Horn. Right now, Mundine don't deserve a rematch. To earn that he needs to beat all local contenders and re build his brand. Unlikely....

Ends up in parliament......

Mundine not only doesn't deserve a rematch, he needs to retire, and the only person not accepting that seems to be him.

Offcourse you can find examples in history but realistically speaking in pure business terms of modern boxing...it snot gonna happen.Who would pay to see it?
I agree Mundine would win in his prime.But he aint.
And draining himaelf to middleweight at 43 was responsible for the end result.
It is what it is.
As a side note Horn looked much better without having to drain bimself,hope he doesnt see 147 ever again.
