Default They were talking "Boxing"......

on the 2KY Sport's Breakfast show yesterday.

I had a little chat with the boys........

Somehow the subject of Mundine......Nievas......Kessler and Calzaghe came up.

If I get time later, I will post an abreviated transcript of the conversation.

I know that you guys will be hanging to hear what was said.

(I am such a fun person)

be good to hear what was said. Mudine is starting to give me the shits lately. I have no doubt in his ability but he is losing fans by avoiding strong opposition.

Default Re: They were talking "Boxing"......

OK........ This is the shortened version..... after an interview with a journalist on the Gold Coast discussing the fight.

2KY.... "John on the phone......Good morning John.......Have your say"

OZ....."G'day fellas. I'd like to talk about this fiasco on the Gold Coast this evening."

2KY......"The Mundine fight.......Mundine is paying $1.03"

OZ....... "Yeah......He's overpriced at that....... This guy Nievas has spent more time on the canvas than Rembrandt"

2KY...... (loud laughter) "You've been thinking about that one for a while....eh John?"

OZ........ (thinking......it wasn't that funny) " Nah........it's an old boxing saying........ But I was just trying to get the message accross......that this guy Nievas......is bad....very bad.....and has no right to be in the same ring as Anthony."

2KY.... "He is a big hitter"

OZ....."It doesn't matter......He's as slow as a wet week (Background laughter).....There is no way he is gonna land one on Mundine.......Mundine's biggest problem is going to be keeping this guy upright for a few rounds"

2KY....... "So you aren't impressed with his credentials?"

OZ........ "Nah mate......It's garbage........ Anthony says that Nievas is rated in the top 15 by the WBA........ and he is now........but he wasn't untill Nasser pulled a few strings.......He's a tomato can"

2KY...... "But seriously John.......They all do it"

OZ..... "Yeah.......but not to the same extent as Mundine, and this fight is a total farce......... Mundine claims to want the big fights, but when the opportunity to fight Kessler arises......he backs away at a million miles an hour."

2KY......."What do you mean?"

OZ....... "Firstly........ I am sick to death of hearing from Mundine about Unifying the Super Middleweight Division....... He can't unify Jack you know what....... He doesn't have a real world Title...... It's a paper Title......not recognised by any other Boxing organisation......He can't Unify anything until he wins a recognised World Title. He has had the opportunity to fight Kessler for his Title twice and knocked it back."

2KY..... "Kessler....... Yes ........ a very good fighter"

OZ....... " Yep.......Kessler and Calzaghe are the top rated Super middleweights"

2KY........ "Kessler has already beaten Mundine"

OZ........ (thinking.....DUH) "Yeah........and he had a Mandatory defence against Mundine but Mundine didn't take the fight but instead gave Kessler permission to fight Marcus Beyer in a Unification bout .......The winner of that fight would then fight firstly Andrade who was rated No. 1 by the WBC....

2KY...... "The World Boxing Council."

OZ........"Yeah.......And the winner of that fight would then fight Anthony with both Titles on the line.......... I figure that was to give Mundine breathing space and a chance to fight more easybeats......... So Anthony gave up the chance firstly to fight Kessler as his Mandatory so that he could fight Sammy Soliman for an unrecognised "paper title". And then more recently deliberately forfeited his right to fight Kessler for the Unified Title so that he could fight this chump.

2KY....... "Wasn't that about money?"

OZ......... "Yeah......according to Mundine.......but if he really wanted to fight Kessler, he could have gone to a purse bid....... and now the situation is that Kessler as Unified Champion isn't required to fight his mandatory ...Mundine, for 18 months.......or if the Kessler Calzaghe fight happens......21 months..........which gives Mundine heaps more time to fight these patsy's and continue to rip off the Australian Public.

2KY...... "21 months?"

OZ....... "Yep.......There is no doubt that Mundine has talent, but he isn't prepared to take risks. I hate to admit it.....but he has been brilliantly managed"

2KY....... " I can understand him not wanting to fight Kessler, because a loss to him would mark the end of his career"

OZ........ "Maybe.......but I hate all the garbage about wanting to fight the best and then running away when he gets the chance....... Mundine has talent.......but sadly...... I don't think that we will ever get the chance to find out how much talent he has."
.................................................................................................... ........................
We continued talking but got interrupted by a News break.

I don't know how many listen to that Sports show........but I do know that probably tens of thousands of sports nuts and the commentators themselves are now awake to Mundines shenanigins........ and if they tell their friends........and their friends, tell their friends..........who knows........Mundine might actually have to look to some credible opponents.

That's pretty good, you know I usually joke about this but this time i'm being completely serious when I say you came across as a bit of a frustrated/angry fan, rather than a JB1 type.

I'm not saying anything, but you know it just looked that way... a bit
