Probably Taylor-Mosley. But what you have to take into account MP that at the time Taylor and Kelly fought SSM and RJJ they were the elite,the creme de la creme no shame in being utterly outclassed by such great fighters.

Glen Kelly basically refused to even throw a punch against RJJ it was ****ing embarrasing to say the least.
He went into his pekaboo stance from the start and just tried to survive it was painful to watch.
To be honest i think he was totally overawed being on the big stage and just froze up once he got in the ring with Roy.

Don't hate on the fighter, hate on the game. Being able to make a voluntary defense from one of the top 15 fighters in the WBA, WBC, IBF or WBO has "champions" constantly knocking on the door on No. 15. The top 15 should be reduced to a top 10.

Don't get me wrong, for La Porto, that fight would have been a career high experience, but as others have stated it was a total mismatch. He went there to try to win....survived for quite a while but he was a punching bag for a far better fighter. Credit to him for having a go.

Mundine v siaca.
To run and not fight like that was embarrassing. At least with the ottke no mundine could hold his head high knowing he stepped up and gave it his all.

easy for u to say.

rjj made excellent fighters look like it was their first fight.

overawed? i'd say just totally outclassed and not knowing where to start. seeing the speed and angles from rjj would puzzle most opponents.

The worst, or at least the most embarressing display for me to watch as an Aussie, having seen all of the above as well, was Rocky Mattioli versus Maurice Hope.

Its a real shame when a fighter realises he just doesn't have it anymore and does a 'No mas'. Unlike Duran however, Mattioli never was able to regain his reputation...

Stick to the Cronulla sharks forums. Shit idea for a thread.

Why not start a thread more along the lines of "best display by an aussie in a work title fight, win or lose"

I didn't ask for your opinions on the thread, if you don't like it don't post in it.
Kelly and Loporto were highly disgraceful.
