Simon Watters, (Chairman of the WA Professional Combat Sports Authority) calling for an investigation into the fight reminds me of OJ Simpson calling for an investigation into his wifes mysterious death.

Yeah, as Paul pointed out last night, Watters ought to look into his own role in precedings before pointing the finger at others.

There's more than enough material here for a 'who-dunn-it' mini-series. Thankfully there's no body involved, but there so easily could have been, and that's the most disturbing part of all.

There are many people caught up in this fiasco who ought to hang their heads in shame for relinquishing the responsibilities they are entrusted with - hail the mighty ****en $$$.

Billy Hussein said the fight was sanctioned in WA half an hour after NSW announced its decision. No tests, no phone calls.

A fighter will fight until sanctioning is withdrawn. See Mirovic B.

No sanction, no Main Event, No fight.

The finger is coming straight at you Watters.

The half hour turnaround of a decision made on medical grounds is certainly diabolical, but there are others invoved both before and after that decision who should be invited to an enquiry to provide 'their thoughts and recollections'.

That comment has been repeated elsewhere, yet remains the perfect tribute regarding the fight engineers this time around.

Great minds think alike PJ. You don't let the fox guard the hen house.

The chairman should resign immediately as he is clearly unfit for duty.

Its not about feeding your face, getting your melon on tv and starf%cking.

Its peoples lives and the reputation of the great sport of boxing that are at risk.

Marcus... If every bloke SOLD OUT for $200,000, the fight game would be a ****ing MORGUE..

Yes, we understand the surrounding events and outcome. Lets pay attention to both circumstances and eradicate any future occurances or likelyhood of a repeat.

i am with you on this one buddy... lot of people with their heads buried in the sand with the cold hard facts staring them in the face. there is no other way to describe what happened that night other than dive, it does not take a neurosurgeon to diagnose that!

I was 100% sold on the dive theory for days Stewy, but now I honesty don't fricken know.

One thing I do know is that Briggs should never have been allowed in a boxing ring that night. Let alone in a title fight against someone who can hurt.
