    Light was poor against the Mexican fella last time out. He went away from boxing him and got caught up trying to go toe to toe with him. Once he went back to boxing his opponent, he did it easy. Hope he gets up here.

    Also, how come Tszyu has stopped defending the Aussie title?

    He vacated then Daniel Lewis won it.

    Then Dan vacated it and I think now Adrian Rodriguez is champ.

    Pretty stock standard for Aussies to discard it before they defend it.

    Those poor rugby league players. People are always picking on them & threatening them when they congregate in large groups in bars & clubs.

    And it's always someone else's fault when trouble starts. It's just not fair!

    I see that Rabchenko who fought Mundine about 4 years ago has called out Tszyu Jnr. This would probably be a decent fight for Tszyu and one he should win. They could easily market this in Australia. I won't be surprised if Tszyu Jnr fights him after Brubaker.

    You reckon Hodge's will be fighting a legit opponent on Tszyu Jnr's under card or another wino from the alley?

    I just looked up Boxrec to see if he's matched up for 6 Dec. The answer is not yet.

    I rate Hodges in terms of athletic ability for a big man. Those big, strong, fast, athletic centre three-quarter types like Hodges & Mal Meninga would have made formidable h/w boxers had they got into the sport early enough.

    I'd like to see someone like Justin Hodges mentor Damien Hooper. Get in his ear & keep him on the straight & narrow.

    In terms of opponent selection for 6 Dec, maybe one more wino. Then step him up to tow-truck drivers.

    I don't see why he can't at least fight another inexperienced former NRL player someone who at least has some athletic ability not another 40 year old Dad who goes to the gym a couple times a week LOL.

    Looks like Kamobosas has finally got a fight in the states just about signed.

    Good to see him back in the ring.

    David Aloua once looked like he'd make a good cruiser under Mundine. After knocking out Brad Pitt, he's lost to Aaron Russel and Mccracken. He's basically a punching bag for australasian prospects at this point
