The biggest joke is Eagle thinking she can win anything but a few paper titles and some lopsided circus shows.

Her one fight so far was an embarrassment, she couldnt punch a hole in a paper bag and with no experience she is a pro now. If she was as serious about the sport as she says she is she'd have fought as an Am first. Were she would have got absolutely schooled by the host of excellent female fighters across the weight classes.

At her weights you have Claire and Naomi, Down you have Sabrina and up in weight Tammy. All of whom would knock her out, even with the head gear on. So she goes pro and stops an 0-1 fighter who had been stopped in her first fight and was considerably lighter and for her second fight she goes up against a girl whom is even lighter than the first and with a loosing record.

Nice looking girl, but she should stick to the boxercise classes she talks about. That's as far as she deserves to go. And the people in the game egging her on should know better, fancy lowering yourself to this level.....

bit harsh, who did u expect her to fight in her pro debut???

we all know it's a publicity stunt so don't let it upset you to much.

The Age are pointing the finger at Eagle vs Tai as being a joke for pay per view -see article below. Okay it's easy to point the finger at, but at least it provided 6 x 2 minutes of entertainment.

What about the semi-main event on the Boxa card not long back - Sonny Bill Williams vs that lard arse Hogan?

Or Green vs Briggs for that matter?

There's been a spate of recent pay-per-views that should never have happened. Why point at this one in particular?


Eagle's pay TV bout 'a joke'

by Mischa Merz - The Age- Oct 30th 2010

FORMER waterski world champion, now boxer, Lauryn Eagle has been branded a raw beginner who knows nothing about the sport and is undeserving of her place on Sunday night's pay per view Main Event featuring Daniel Geale's IBF middleweight eliminator against Roman Karmazin at Sydney's Olympic Park.

Eagle has been billed as being on a quest for a world title when she has so far had only one fight against a smaller, and much older and inexperienced Kay Hodgson, who was stopped in the first round.

''She's a novice. The degree to which they're pushing her doesn't match her ability,'' said boxing manager Mike Altamura who is responsible for the recent World Boxing Organization lightweight title fight between Perth's Erin McGowan and the United Kingdom's Lindsey Scragg which headlined in the west on October 9.

McGowan is a four-time national amateur champion and 14-0 as a professional and has so far had only fleeting appearances on Fox Sport.

''Boxing insiders generally regard Eagle as a sideshow that has nothing to do with pro boxing or the advancement of the sport,'' Altamura said.

Other professional and champion amateur female boxers as well as some senior male boxing figures have branded Eagle's match against New Zealander Christina Tai, who normally fights in a division 10 kilograms lighter than Eagle, as a joke. ''I don't want people around Australia thinking this is what women's boxing is all about,'' said 2009 national amateur welterweight champion Tammy Taylor.

''I don't want her representing me and what I do.

''I really don't understand the reason for all the attention. All the media coverage is an absolute joke and it's unfair.''

Female professional boxer and former Australian amateur champion Diana Prazak has said offers by her camp to fight Eagle have fallen on deaf ears.

She said she couldn't understand why Eagle received so much media attention when there were ''genuine superstars'' in Australian women's boxing who rarely rated a mention and had hardly been seen on TV.

Can understand why Erin McGowan might be a bit down on Eagle for getting on the PPV coverage. McGowan is certainly already the real deal, and bye and bye, aint that shabby herself.

Sarah "Missy" Howitt would punch holes in her. Sarah fought Erin in her second fight losing on points and would match Eagle in a heartbeat.

Just a pretty face, Erin McGowen on the other hand is a beast! Put those two in together and say goodbye to Eagle's good looks
You are spot on mate.

I disagree about her saying its about fitness and girls dont hit hard. Ive judged Erin and seen most of her fights and she hits hard.

My comments earlier were not harsh and her hand picked opponent and the joke of a fight on the weekend, again proved that.

Why doesn't she want to spar any of the good female fighters? She wants to be a World champ this time next year but wont even spar the best domestic fighters now? lol

And if she thinks she'd be saved by the head gear in the Am's, then lets see her step in with some of the Am girls and see what happens, let alone Erin who would KO her in a round.

She says what she is doing is good for the sport.... How is fighting bums, having the techique of a four year old and patronising world class fighters good for the sport.

She's hot, she can water ski. That's all, we dont need another circus show in boxing. Support the girls who have earnt their chance, not the ones who arent in the top 100.
