    Remember Daniel "Porky" Lovett??

    He was in some memorable local scraps.

    Think he got involved with some shady characters post boxing career.

    I hope your right but Jerkic is up against a tough Kazak who will probably start as favourite,both guys have decent power so the fight should have fireworks and possibly end up being fight of the night.
    I thought he was unlucky against Buttegeig who hasn't been able to return since there fight but a win for Jerkic tomorrow night definitely would put him on track for fighting any of those guys you mentioned down the track.

    Agreed, but lay blame accurately - no Australian judge or ref involved and Horn's team don't have the cash to buy anyone. No conspiracy - it was incompetence plain and simple.

    Australian boxing's take-over of the World Junior Middleweight division continues tonight. It won't be long before our blokes hold all the major world titles at Junior Middle.

    Dennis Hogan beat Mexican Mungo so I'm ticking the WBO box right now. Tick.

    The winner of Junior Tszyu v Wake in Fright Ritchie goes into the IBF top 5. It's only a matter of time from there until the IBF strap finds itself in the cargo hold of a Qantas jet.

    Horndog needs to forget about his Middleweight pipe-dream & get amongst the WBA Junior Middles. They're ripe for the picking. Start with the un-super version of their world title & take it from there. That's the bauble Horndog should be aiming for.

    That leaves the WBC belt for Drop Bombs Lewis. Sure, he's only had three pro fights but he could be the best of the lot. Having claimed the Australian title last start his ascension to WBC champ from here can begin with earnest. I can see him being ready for a title shot after a dozen or so fights if they pick them right.

    Then we can get some unification fights happening.

    There are rumours Junior Fa is fighting Kubrat Pulev next...a step too far too early?

    Lewis is still raw , just because he has won da Australian title in his 3d pro doesn't mean he's next world's best at da moment .

    I'd like to see him fight the New Zealand champ next up, Bowyn Morgan. If he's still recognised as Australian champ, a win would make him Australasian champ. That's a rare achievement for any Australian or New Zealand fighter.

    Then put plans in place for him to challenge for the Commonwealth title (they're affiliated with the WBC) & the WBC International title.

    From there, it's a short step to a WBC world title shot.

    These young blokes need to put plans in place if they want to get somewhere.

    My plan for Drop Bombs Lewis is a WBC title shot after a dozen pro fights.

    If he's good enough, it's achievable. It's early days, but I like what I've seen so far.
