The reporter fails to mention that Danny has given young fighters like Will a massive profile by getting them on his cards and getting them the exposure to go on to better things.
To say that boxing fans won't follow Will because of the Green/Briggs fight is the biggest load of shit i have ever heard

The "True" fight fans will still follow these up and comers but because of the shit which has been put on PPV in recent times this as an avenue for the casual / semi true fight fan will dry up...the headline fight is the clincher in forking out the cash for PPV....it's this exposure which is in trouble for the next generation.

Posted this article yesterday in a different thread.

It appears as though the writer has plagerised the article from one seen a few days, perhaps a week ago, and just filled it in a bit.

Much of it is rubbish - but the general theme is unfortunately not that far off the mark.

The next 6 months are going to be very important to the future of Australian boxing, and whether we like it or not a lot of it is riding on the backs of Green and Mundine.

I didn't see your post. Nothing new in the article, I just thought it was funny that it was from Fiji, & Interesting to see how the rest of the world is looking at our Boxing scene.

Yeah, no drama on the post mate.

The Yanky forum had a thread that was going bananas about Briggs v Green - very strong views.

As far as the Fiji article goes, it was seriously just stolen and slightly re-worded from an Aussie article - may have been from the Sydney Morning Herald (can't remember exactly).

Agree with you Buster.

Everything these days is $$$ driven, and it's the numbnuts who've continued to fund crap cards that help ensure they continue happening.

When Waters stormed the ring after Mundine beat Carlos Jerez, they had already basically agreedon terms. Boxing people I know swear to me that when Waters fronted Mundine, he whispered to him "I'm gonna push you" moments before he shoved Waters away for having the temerity to challenge him.

So Mundine is taking on Australia's No.4, two fights after saying he struggled to find the motivation for these kind of fights, as he had then against Robert Medley _ who is Australia's No.3.

mundog gets less than the shit he deserves. he deserves ottke....every fight. in a ****en coma for 10 minutes!!!!!!

The timing might be a bit surprising, but at least they are talking Aussie boxing.

Interesting that they are talking Aussie boxing in another country, although it's not for the right reasons.
