Default Re: was sbw v frans botha a good fight?

Sonny Bill did well for his limited experience, exceptionally well when you consider boxing isn't even his number one priority, so my hat goes off to him for his athletic ability alone.

Was a bit worrying though to think that this is the way boxing is heading in Australia, it's not like people go to watch the "fights" anymore, they are more interested in "gala'" events that showcase crossover athletes. With the exception of a handful of top flight boxers in this country the average punter is more keen in following Footy players/boxers.

God help us all if UFC/MMA starts an junior/amateur competition in this country.
