Default Re: Eagle looking to land 2 world titles!

She's already established world champion water skier. Because of that she has the maturity, mentality, athleticism and competitive edge to pick up boxing quick. To go 6x2 rounds in only her second fight as opposed to amateur 3x2 is a big step up. Christina Tai, even though she doesn't have the greatest record, was quite experienced at 13 fights. I'd put her fight above SBW vs Gary Gurr anyday!

She has the looks for being marketable while also getting advice and being trained by too highly ranked fighters Lovemore Ndou/Gary St Clair...Girls like her will succeed because she knows exactly what she wants and knows how to get it. Media is always going to be hype but i honestly think she'll do well...

Wasn't she a junior world champ?

The devil is in the details...

If she is going to do well as you suggest, can we see her spar some quality girls and not dodge them, or not dodge decent opponents who have only had a few fights themselves.

Here is an idea, Angie Parr has only had a handful of fights in boxing, let's see Ms Eagle take her on!

And how on earth does being good at water skiing make you a decent boxer???? LOL

It is an embarrassment to the sport to have her on a PPV card. There are girls far more deserving, who can actually box, have done the hard yards for years and might actually show a positive side to the sport the general public doesn't see.

good to see jealousy in womans boxing is just as bad as mens!

the girl is having a crack (I hate womans boxing at any level) and is getting coverage, that can only be good for all women with boxes- I mean woman boxers!

I dont think any of the girls are jealous, it's a joke. Big difference.

Hey Newbie...go back and read the post again! PPV all not, doesn't matter. It's not as if she was the main event or main support! Fortunately Grange had plenty of well matched fights to justify PPV. You obviously don't like her...

Get over it, she probably wouldn't care what the haters say!

And of course they won't put her in with Angie Parr. Parr will kill...give the girl a break, she just started

Sorry the number of posts on a forum obviously determine who much about a certain subject someone knows.......

If she wasn't well know for other things, she wouldnt get on a thursday night show as the first fight, let alone a PPV card. It is about merit and if you want to be taken seriously you dont say you are going to win a world title in 12 months yet at the same time be unwilling to fight good domestic fighters.

So remove your head from her nice bottom and try and smell the fresh air, the fumes up their are obviously clouding your view.

I have judged Erin once - was a great four rounder in Melbourne.

If she got behind her punches, or was able to suitably defend herself then you could understand people getting excited :P
However, its unfair on the girl to carry on with this crap when she has shown nothing more than a willingness to have a go. That in itself is admirable, but not deserving of the accolades.

Lol i think it's fair to say comparing Water skiing and boxing is like comparing Aswin Cabuy to Floyd Mayweather.

I missed Lauryn's fight, I didn't know the boxing started early arvo just happened to stumble across it when surfing the sports channels.

I didn't mind paying $39.95 to watch the excellent line up, Lenny's round one KO and Daniel's awesome display of skill and hungry TKO win.
