Seriously I love Tszyu & Vic but they don't count as Australian fighters IMO

The Magic Mushroom season has got off to a flyer down under by the looks of it , some of you blokes are tripping , IMO Jeff Hardings title = 10 of those shitty WTF titles .

When I say Aussie,I mean Aussie not Russian born Australian etc..Real world titles as it would count for all of boxing history,the minor titles would only count for the last 20 or so years

Yes Mundine lost in world title fights, I am merely pointing out how many former champs he fought. That was the title of the thread. Fenech was KO'd in title fights so was Vic so was Tszyu, so was Danny Green, so many Aussie fighters have been badly beaten in world title fights.

No, the point is that Manny Siaca is only a 'world champ' (and i use the term loosely) because Mundine lost to him. You shouldn't mention Mundine in the same sentence as Fenech, Tszyu and Darchynian - they were all legitimate world champs and world class fighters whereas Mundin was just a top notch DOMESTIC LEVEL boxer.

You're right, Australia produced him. They were in his corner for all his Amateur Career spanning about 10 years, with World Amateur Championships, Olympics under his belt... For Russia.

' Even though he aint an Australian born,Id say Lovemore ' is the first sentence,which is pretty straight forward..Kostya was mentioned so I threw Lovemore in there,But my thread was intended for Australia Born boxers
