Default GARTH WOOD. a courageous late career.

look at who he fought. look at how few fights he'd had when he fought them. look at the age he started. look at the lack of experience he had compared to what he achieved.

he took his chances. took his wins with his losses. he's got more courage than many boxers of this age...

experience of his opponents.

wood. opponent.
1. 12 fights
2. 5 (ko'd. most would have given in. not our little battler)
3. 15
4. 4
5. 16
6. 14 (contender series)
7. 32 (oganov ")
8. 30 (contender ")
9. 29
10. 9
11. 24
12. 43 (mundine 1. the greatest result in recent history)
13. 44 (mundine 2 )
14. 51 (soliman)



not bad for a bloke that started at about 27-8 yo...

The blokes earnings for a dozen fights would be impressive........... he certainly lucked in with the contender and Mundine fights. Set himself up financially for sure.

Even the Soliman fight he probably got a decent figure... anyone know the amount?

Garth Wood is the most disgusting fighter I have ever seen, how he didn't get disqualified in his fights with Mundine, Karitz & Oganov is unbelievable.

Are you talking about his thugly 'boxing' style- which gives Aussie brawlers a bad name, or are you talking about 'that' camping story???

The type of statement I'd expect from someone who knows jack shit about boxing. Also it's Wood not Wood's you ****ing retard.

I do however think Wood would crack Sherrington's glass jaw.
