I think him being on his way out had more to do with the Lockridge loss, plus Lockridge was a very good fighter.
alphonse bashed barry in 87. barry fought lockridge a few months later, but had been inactive for 12 months due to his injuries.

had alphonse not had his minders with him, and it was a one on one fight, barry would have punched 'piss and pick handles' out of the deadshit gangster.....

He lost the belt in 1987.
The English-born boxer, whose family migrated to Australia when he was a toddler, is a boxing analyst in the media.
He has claimed his career ended after he was brutally bashed by gangster Alphonse Gangitano in 1987.
Gangitano, who was murdered in Melbourne's gangland wars, was a fan of Ellis.

I just wonder how many of the critics here have actually met and conversed with Barry?
If you did you would find that a courteous gentleman was engaging with you in polite discussion.

It is so, so typical for boxing fans (?) (probably better described as boxing's dead-shit brigade) for you to find it so easy to criticise and try to cut this great, tall poppy down.

How many of you critics have ever engaged in a plan to win a world title, where you climbed the hill slowly, perservering, and continually pushed that big farking heavy car up that big hill, and all by yourself. Truth is, you have no farking idea about the efforts this bloke went to, in order to reach his goal.

You're just a bunch of fark heads, seriously. Barry deserves no criticism for his efforts and he has continued to show a gentleman model for the sport of boxing. If you pricks were this model, boxing would be in a very poor and worse state. Take a look at yourselves, you scurrilous pack of non entities.

Of 33 posts 3 posters have been denigrating of BM in 3 posts....hardly a pack.

I like the word "scurilous"....probably better suited to describing pirates and bushrangers who double cross oneanother.

I think you will find that it is spelt SCURRILOUS, and not SCURILOUS, boxingcottonon.
It's usual meaning is, "Making or spreading scandalous claims about someone with the intention of damaging their reputation". (and I find it difficult to think that Pirates would care about the meaning of this word whilst on high seas, and facing a musket or curved cutlass...in fact this would be more fair than the dredging some of you criticisers deliver to boxing.)

Yes, I realise that this thread has only a few nay sayers; but why?

To be fair the 'naysayers' have only criticized his commentary and it's their prerogative to do so, even though many of us disagree. I don't think anyone could really try and assassinate his character or say bad things about him as a person because that would be just plain wrong. Barry seems like a great guy.

I'm sure Barry Michael is a gentleman and a good person. Most people here would agree but he totally embarrasses himself with the nonsense he spouts about Anthony Mundine and if you refuse to acknowledge that then you are clearly blind.

Barry Michael's a gun in the ring and out of it - but Mundine seems to compromise he's objectiveness somewhat.

Youtube is always a good start - but others may be able to specifically post some stuff.
