Default Re: Mundines next fight

Lyell vs Mundine could actually be a good match-up.

Have seen footage of Lyell vs Duddy, and Lyell is as willing a fighter as you'll ever find. Looked better in that fight than the rest of his record suggests anyway. Lyell may struggle to connect with the elusive Mundine, but IMO Mundine will struggle to KO Lyell, and therefore have to put up with plenty along the way.

Not sure it's actually a fight that's any kind of stepping-stone for Mundine, but one that might test him none the less.

cheers im from Newcastle (its the best part), i figured he got enough to be comfortable without regulary fighting dangerous guys. Green is ok from what i've seen but jones will hammer him. Is the man more popular than katsidis and darchinyan in oz?

If you said London you would be right! How's the CC Championship going? Purely Belter? Katsidis by far the more popular out of the two although Vic is the superior fighter IMO, many reasons for that

Fighting Lyell is a very smart move. It brings Jack Leow down here. And it gets a **** load of press in Ohio and even the US. It is the one fight that gives Mundine enough hype to fight Pavlik without actually fighting in the US. Lyell is top 15. He beat John Duddy in his last fight.

Lyell is top 15. Hes better than Espino, Ornelas and Karmazin. Its a step up.

I am looking forward to this one

After a SD win over Duddy and being only 25 Lyell is coming into his prime. Hes had the big fights against some solid top 15 world MW's.

Nobody can say this is a step back for Mundine can they?

Also with Mundine fighting Geale early next year then the winner of the contender looks like things are looking up for Mundine.
wow, spindoctor in full effect

Commentator is right in that first round - Duddy was lucky Lyell wasn't a big puncher. He got some good shots on him there.

Not to say he is an inkling of a challenge for Mundine though, who looks like he will be 5kg and 1 foot bigger than Lyell if they fight.

Mundine is 2 inches taller. But Lyell went in against Duddy at 158 and Mundine against Geale at just over 159. But yes Mundine was cut out to be a bigger guy.

If Lyell does happen to win, assuming Mundine defends the IBO title, I'd mean Geale vs Lyell in Feb.

It may be even sooner than that CHB - the deadline is Feb, Lyell would inherit the mandatory and so more than likely would be his first defence

WOW!!! Calls out Pavlik, calls out Sturm...........ends up with Lyle. Sorry Ash & mandy supporters but going from fighting the likes of Ottke, Kessler & Siaca.....even Green........and people are still applauding him for stepping up. He's been up & guess what.......he's just not good enough to beat the top, period!

Mandy is nothing more than the B grade champion, who really struggled in his last fight with a young up & comer in Geale, some say he lost me included.

I like watching Mandy fight, I luv what he's done for Oz boxing but enough's enough. Fight the best & beat the best if ya keep saying your the best...........stop running from them.
