Default Masters over 35 boxing in Australia

Had no idea there were masters, over 35 boxing tournaments held in Australia until I stumbled on this website >>>

I notice Frank Ropis won a title at one of these masters tournaments at age 55, a couple of years ago.

Be careful mate, some of these Master's World champons seem to be very touchy about their accomplishments if recent events are anything to go by!

I wouldn't want you to accidently wake up a lion and get eaten!!

I have started training at the North Sydney PCYC and there are quite a few masters competing there

I didn't realise it was as big as it is until I started there

Yes it would seem those threads went missing, maybe the lion ate them up.

Yep, they're missing all right.

Shame, I came very late to that party- any later and I would have missed it all entirely!

As for 'the Lion' eating them up- mabye?

I guess we'll never know.But I had just assumed that when 'the Lion' roared, you shat yourself and did what you were told to save your skin...and asked the Mod's to delete the threads??

Say it ain't so!!

Yes your right me & about 5 other guys were bagging the lion we are apparently one guy who created all the accounts because we are jealous of the great lion who defeated his world class sparring partner for a world title in a 4 round fight. When I was exposed as the flea on the lion I shat myself, I am no match for a 55kg 45 year old man.

Maybe Dales Berry could make his return to the ring against a pensioner and try his luck.

Could be a bit of fun. I'm guessing a lot of blokes are just using it to get fit and meet some new people. Or were blokes who fought amateur but family, work or whatever excluded them from continuing. The more the merrier I say. Be ****ed if Bernard Hopkins moved to Australia and turned up wanting a fight tho!!
