    What I really like about Justis Huni is his speed. He's so much quicker than the other guys up at that weight. That's one of the main reasons Mike Tyson dominated at such a young age. It wasn't just the devastating power he had. It was that he was so much faster than all the other guys. I'm not suggesting Justis Huni is the next Mike Tyson but he's clearly the best H/W talent we've ever had & there's every reason to be very excited about what lies ahead going through to the Olympics.

    Calling him the best Heavyweight talent we’ve ever had is a big call. It could well be deserved, it will be interesting to watch it all unfold.

    FOXTEL hasn’t been picking up the espn top rank cards. I read they were charging too much which is a shame as it would be good to se Kambosos live in action and I am excited about Lopez v Commey on the same card.

    Exciting times for boxing in this country, there seems to be some quality coming talent coming thru to go with the half dozen or so guys fighting for world titles or on the cusp of getting there shot.
    The future looks bright If we can match up our fighters properly so they don't get badly exposed like fighters such as fighters like Akkaway etc have soon as they do stepped up,combined with regular tv coverage media exposure and opportunities for fighters other then footy players with limited skills

    So basically you want Aussie fighters to continue to cherry pick rather than step up and be exposed. It’s not like Ryder is some elite fighter on paper it was a good match up for Akkaway the problem is Akkaway just wasn’t good enough.

    Obviously the idiot who likes all of your posts has difficulty with the english language but I have no idea why you continue replying to every post of mine in here with trash like this that has nothing to with anything that i said.

    Very true Akkaway probably won't box anymore .
    Most Australian's under done at the high level .
    Definitely need more home grown fights witch the promoter's won't risk .

    Jason Whateley's fight will be announced this arvo. I was thoroughly impressed with the last Wildfighter promotion. Very professional set up by Will and he drew a huge crowd out in the bush.

    The bloke you are calling an idiot is a highly respected former trainer he would have forgotten more about boxing than you will ever know. I was just trying to make sense of your post. Are you suggesting Akkaway should not have taken the fight with Ryder?

    Just ask instead of making ridiculous assumptions that have nothing to do with my post

    I don't blame Akkaway for taking the fight at all but he was clearly not ready as you said yourself and those around him probably should have known,especially after getting a lucky hometown decision the 1 time he did step up against a faded former world champ.
    Fighting the mediocre opposition Akkaway fought in his 20 fight career obv did him no favours,which is what i was talking about when matching our fighters with better quality opposition and better sparring,i'm not sure how you or anybody could possibly disagree
