Is Kickett comeback looking more than slightly serious? Hope so, I rate the fighter/corner combination with this guy, there is a genuine care amongst them. There seems to be a plethora of dates there on boxrec, does this mean there are talks going on?

WTF is happening with Pitt's Commonwealth title shot? Still not announced. Ammatruda said it was going to be Botha but that doesnt work. Very interested to know who it is. Would love to see the wheels back on the Pitt machine

Apparently there's a chance Garth Wood and Serge Yannick might contest the national super middleweight title on this card.

It's beyond my comprehension that such historic titles have been left to rot for so long ( not just the 168lbs title but all Australian national titles) Is it really beyond Aussie promoters to put on a series of tournaments to right the mess?
Winning the Australian title should hold more prestige than these Pan Asian titles even if they don't gain a fighter higher world rankings . Aussie , Commonwealth then World title tilts should once again become the order of the day , naive of me to think this I know but shit its such a shame to see the older titles fall by the wayside .

It's the 18th of April according to Boxrec. My mistake. But if Garth is fighting Serge that might bbe off.

Good step up for will .this is about where his at.probably his first world class opponent he will need to win this if he wants a crack at one of the real topliners .he will have to win it pretty convincingly if he stand a chance against any of the topliners .i don't think he stands a chance against any of the topliners but this is good fight for him and about the level of opponent he should be fighting.
