Re: Your views on Barry Boy Mickeal?
Barry has done everything in the game. State, national, commonwealth and world titles. His Oz lightweight title reign is just a couple of months short of Vic Patricks record, yet Barry faught in a quieter period of Oz boxing. The arse end of TV Ringside left the game slipping, and many quality fighters never recieved the dues.
Had Barry Michael been fighting in the stadiums between 1910 and 1960, the place would have packed out at every showing. Tough, relentless, courageous, cunning and holding more than enough boxing smarts to play chicken with every imported lightweight this country has seen.
IMO, he's one of the top 5 most under rated fighters produced here.
As for Fenech, Barry would have torn him a new arsehole at Jnr Lightweight. Fenechs hands would have given in well before Barry's head felt any effects. FACT.
