..I was in the Commercial Hotel in Charters Towers when Cliffy fought Lovemore Ndou on the Kostya Tsyzu undercard..
..and the dopey ring announcer introduced Cliffy Samardin!!!!...from MT ISA!!!...in NSW!!!!..what the ****???..the pub was goin' off over that..poor old Cliffy was shakin' his head..Mt Isa in NSW for ****s sake..
..anyway I remmember Cliffy goin' life'n'death in the 7th round of that fight and thinkin' to myself that he just passed a major gut test and he was enroute to getting himself a World title shot..
