I thin Afolabi's defeat of Maccarinelli is worth a mention (I know he was born in London but I'd still class him as foreign). Enzo was poor but a lot of credit goes to Afolabi for not ever letting Enzo into the fight and taking away his jab.

Victor Polo looked good when he got robbed against Scott Harrison as did Javier Osvaldo Alverez v Michael Gomez

Although not against World Class Sergio Martinez looked a million dollars against Adrian Stone and Richard William 2. I remember the fight beacuse of Adam Smiths commentary oin the Stone fight

'Whatevr happens here he won't be invited back to this country'

He was, hen he layed the smackdown on Williams

Hagler also Mick O'Malley deserves a mention for being one of the few Aussies to successfully fight there.

Timothy Bradley, beating heavy favoured british light welter junior witter was the first fight that came to mind, He performed excellent, witter is considered one of the most technically gifted in the division, and he looked a mess compared to bradley

No, that was in the States and plus Reid was well on the slide anyway.

Hagler v Minter (and the aftershow party)!

McCallum's job on Watson is a good call. Watson was a stunning boxer and was in great shape and highly motivated. McCallum broought his A game over and was unfazed.
