Default Re: Your views on Barry Boy Mickeal?

barry is top bloke and a great supporter of both pro and amateur boxing. he's probably the main promoter in melbourne and does a decent job in what is now the most fringe of sports.

as a fighter he came in on the end of boxings main stream popularity and for many years was the face of boxing down here (in melb at least)

he was just one of those fighters that every time he looked like stepping up would lose and/or was a fighter that to international quality opposition qualified as too little risk for too little reward

there is a great doco about the lester ellis v BM fight. you should see if you can down load from some where. i'm sure someone must've posted it.

as for the mundine stuff - look he just rates the blokes talent - he has never denied the whole cherry picking thing or the big mouth. but anyone who says mundine can't fight is blinded by his horrible personality and his failure to fight anyone of quality - although he did fight and beat green and geale so...
