Yeah also heard he did the same thing from someone who was there when he sparred Shannon "Shaggy" King, the kickboxer. although this was around 4 months before Rocky had his first pro fight when he was based out a gym in the Fortitude Valley in Brisbane.

He is no doubt a talent but if there are question marks over his heart at this stage, then there is no way he is ready for a step up yet, we will find out one way or another if he stays in America because you can be sure as shit his heart is going to get tested over there

i know the guy who first had roicky before he came to sydney and went with george.

this guy said rocky is a pure talent with unlimited potential, but there was worries about his behaviour and whether he had the mindset for the big stage

Posting something that's actually correct would improve your batting average. It sure needs improving.

Les Piper only had two fights in Brisbane last year - against Trent Broadhurst (Sth Brisbane) & Josh Clenshaw (Southport).

Broadhurst was the 6 rounder

Angelo didn't want to pretty Lucas B more than $3k so why on earth would he pay Les $6k? I know Angelo is an incredibly smart business man, that's why I'm curious
