Conflicted about this fight. I want Cameron to win because I like him, but realistically an on-form Barrett is too good for him. Barrett looked pretty good at the weigh-in and seems full of confidence.
On the undercard is a chick fight between NZ's version of Kim Kardashian and a girl from the Australian version of Jersey Shore.
Jaime Ridge (NZ's Kim) is a vacant bimbo whose father is a famous ex-All Black and whose mother is known for marrying first a NZ rep cricket player and then an NZ rep rugby player. She divorced them both within a few years. And she has made literally
the dumbest, most infuriating comments I've seen anyone make this year.
After her daughter's opponent wrote the following on Facebook:

Pretty fair complaint ahead of a boxing match I'd say, especially if the match is at 130 pounds and your opponent is naturally 15 pounds bigger than you.
Then this gold-digging ***** responded on behalf of her daughter:
Ridge's mother Sally Ridge has come to her daughter's defence, calling comments about her weight "disgusting".

"She is 100 per cent focused and I take my hat off to her and it's really sad that it's come to this because she's put 100 per cent into this and I think it's incredibly unfair that it's come to this."
Yeah, it's "incredibly unfair" that your opponent wants you to fight at an agreed weight, instead of being a couple of weight classes up. Because asking for that is incredibly unusual in boxing and is clearly a personal insult to her daughter.
