    * Maloney twins are signed with Top Rank but the Tanzanian fighters can be dangerous as
    Bruno Vifuaviwili showed. Not sure if Dessaix wants rematch with Auimatagi as Moses
    starched him with huge overhand right in 90 secs. The fight with Kerry Foley could be
    the fight of the night and OPBF SMW Title is up for grabs. Don't expect this one to
    last the distance with Foley $ 2.67 and Auimatagi $ 1.42.
    * Sam Soliman to play a role as mentor for Jayde Mitchell.
    * Alex Leapai according to his trainer Noel Thornberry a late replacement for
    Eric Molina against Joe Parker Providence Rhode Island June 29.
    * Liam Wilson returns and in his 1st week of training camp.
    * Renold Quinlan returning Aug 14.
    * Joe Goodall returning against India's Sumit Rangi June 28.

    I might be in the minority here but I don't think Leapai constitutes much of a step down from Molina. Lateral move at worst.

    * Tim Tszyu opponent for Aug 14 will be announced on Fri. I'm guessing its Dwight
    Ritchie. As the Cowboy is now ranked IBF no 10 and a victory would give Tszyu
    the all important top 10 ranking. Undercard shaping up nicely with Jack Brubaker ,
    Renold Quinlan and AFL player Tayla Harris. This will add a lot of media attention
    as she is 4 - 0 and has 100 ,000 instagram followers and she captured national
    and global headlines when a pic of her was posted and the social media comments
    went viral.

    * ESPN not showing the Foley vs Auimatagi fight and this is shame as i assume Fox is
    taking ESPN feed. The April Adams Title fight being shown on ESPN so i also assume it
    will not be streamed live ?
    * Liam Paro now IBF no 8 and he is chasing a WBO mandatory he is no 3. ( WBO rankings
    haven't being updated. )
    * Cheeky May steady at 130 lbs IBF no 7.
    * Recently signed Bellator MMA Bec Rawlings is backing April Adams.
    '' April is looking great . She had a great training camp and really leveled up in training
    in the past weeks. I have no doubt she bring home the belt. "

    Jai Opetaia is facing Nik Charalompous next. A bit underwhelming if you ask me. Charalompous has continued to blow up in weight over the years and is really a blown up light heavyweight who has already lost to Ben Kelleher who Opetaia has beaten comfortably and got a hometown decision against Joseph Kwadjo a few years back.

    Yeah thats a bit disappointing and I'm sure that's not what Jai would prefer.
    At least he is jumping straight back in the ring..after being out for nearly a year with that debacle with the Belgian.

    Tszyu v Ritchie is a good fight its a shame it can't just be on regular fox sports. Big time boxing on fox sports probably would've survived if they could consistently put on cards like this. Tapia v Quinlan is also a good fight. If it was at the Star I would probably go but might just watch from home this time.

    Dwight Ritchie is a high quality opponent for Junior Tszyu. His actual record is better than it looks. Those first four no-contests on his record were all wins that took place when he was under age. So his actual record is 23 and 1. One loss in ten years as a pro including international experience is pretty good going.

    Interesting move by Joel Camilleri. He will have both Horndog & Dennis Hogan to spar with up there. And of course they'll have him. That's been one of the keys to success of the guys up there - the good sparring. Liam Paro has spent time in that gym as has Daniel Lewis. Cameron Hammond is based there also. The regular, high quality sparring behind closed doors is something the Tszyu camp will need to address if he's to dethrone Horndog down the line.

    Not sure how Camilleri's departure from Melbourne leaves Michael Zerafa in terms of sparring partners. Particularly if he's fighting Horndog next up.

    Just saw, first time Pintos had been stopped in almost four years, when Brandon Cook did him. Pintos went the distance in his only defeat since then, against the mighty Shefat Isufi. :sisi1

    * The Mens and Women's Aust Champ is being held in Melb next week as
    this is a pre selection event for Mens World Champ to be held in Yekateriburg
    Russia 7 to 21 Sept and Women World Champ to be held Ulan Ude Russia
    3 to 13 Oct.
    * Ty Telford camp not chasing Brubaker rematch at moment as they feel he needs
    more exp and his natural weight is 140 lbs. He was so strong in Brubaker fight and
    will be a force at this at weight.
    * Talks of Camilleri moving back to his natural weight of 147 lbs. How about a fight
    with Brubaker who is never in a dull fight .
    * UFC Alex Volkanowski is on standby for UFC 240 Alberta July 23 just weeks
    after contracting a serious infection in Chilean hospital that nearly cost him a leg.
    If Frankie Edger withdraws from a Title fight with FW Champ Max Holloway then
    Alex would be catapulted straight into a world title shot.
    * Good to see new local promoter on the scene with Tasman Fighters to promote
    Opetia fight at Luna Park.

    * Ben Damon explained why will we never see Bud , Loma and Fury on Fox unless its
    PPV. Its seems Top Rank charges more than double that of any other promoter to show
    their cards . So unless these fighters leave TR or are in a cross promotional with PBC
    they will be on the sidelines on Fox. The Maloney twins who recently signed with TR and
    were on Fox Sat was not a TR promotional card. The Fury fight was $ 35 on Sky TV in NZ.
    * Looks like Brock Jarvis will be on the sidelines for a while. Jarvis is in a Bangkok Hospital
    after receiving a twisted testicle that required emergency surgery. The operation and overnight bed cost his trainer Jeff Fenech $ 12000.
    * CW Khalid Barker who is on parole and trying to clear his name of a murder conviction won his third pro fight Sat Melb Pavilion.
    * Cheeky May had a victory in 1st rd over Jose Tamayo in Tijuana Mexico. Single left hook to the liver. Cheeky has big fight July 17 on ESPN.
    * Pacquiao camp is so impressed with Tim Tszyu they have invited him to join his camp in LA forr three weeks. Pacquaio declared " Nobody makes me think like Tszyu "
    * Daniel Lewis who has signed with Top Rank its seems is not making his debut in the States June but is headlining a local card June 21.

    Our Super Middles need to fight each other or they're going to end up like Bilal Akkawy when they do step up.

    One of them should at least be willing to take on that Kiwi. That none of them have is something of an indictment.

    Yes he hits hard but if they aspire to fight for world titles one day, they should be willing to take him on.

    I saw all four fights from last night - a couple last night & the other two today on replay.

    Auimatagi & Dessaix did what they were supposed to & won well.

    Jason Moloney's fight only lasted three rounds but he got a decent workout. Andrew Moloney's opponent quit cold in the second & he didn't.
