I fight for Fred Brophy in the tent and have for the past 3 years I've got a few fights on you tube if you want to have a look. just type Fred Brophy into the search and they will come up.

checked out your vids, you tough no doubt about it!! Fighting in the tents is hard, you could be fighting a drunk one night and then an Aussie champ the next, good on you!!
Just make sure you keep that chin down and your hands up tho!!!
Out of intrest how much do you guys get paid?

I thought you have some promise as a boxer, you are certainly tough as and have a good punch.

Just need some polishing and better technique, probably better doing that in tha ams than in the tent.

Are you still technically an am because surely you still get paid??

You have a granite chin, never reacted to anything!!

Respect the fact your doing that, looks pretty tough.

As an observer id say keep your hands up, and try move the head a bit more and work of your defenseive game.
But then again easier said than done.

Other than that good stuff.

We do get beat sometimes but most of the other boys can really fight. The tent Only travels QLD now beacuse its been banned in every other state. And yes I should really work on my defence beacuse its pretty shit atm.
Birdsville Races and the Mt Isa Rodeo are some of the places we take the tent.
