    Don't know what weebey has left and not even a completed round of activity in 3 years isn't good but a known name on George's record will only help his cause.

    Few years ago this would have been a very hard fight and not a good style for him to be facing.

    Can't fault George here either , he's another who travels to back himself , as you suggest mate we don't know what Bey has left but half a decade ago he was right up there .good luck George .

    Ps I hope George fights in Greece again next summer , I could trick the Mrs into a domestic flight to Athens under the pretence of visiting the Accropolis. Lol.

    Brown's biggest problem is he needed to relocate either to the UK or the US where he would have got better training and sparing..

    Plus effectively missing 2 years following his good win against Chagev really didn't help him at all..

    Totally agree mate I suggested Alex do the same a few fights prior to his fight with Wlad but I could see it was never going to happen as they were family men by then with kids of their own , in all fairness to the pair of them they both knew they had to travel to fight and they did , I've always said geographically your lads down under are at a distinct disadvantage they always have been but it's no secret that when your fighters have had their most success on the world stage they had ' cleaned house ' domestically prior.

    * Andrew Maloney near unbackable odds $ 1.04 to win world title.
    * Jason Maloney the same $ 1.04 to win and hopes to challenge for world title Feb.
    * Barry Hall been sparring with CW Daniel Russell and Ben Kelleher.
    * Tayla Harris been preparing in the USA and training with Justin Fortune and Jeff
    Mayweather as she prepares for Nov 16 fight . Harris because of her AFL profile
    and social media following could if she can fight go a long way for women boxing
    in Aust.
    * NRL Gold Coast player Jarrod Wallace fighting Nick Timms Suncoast NRL
    player World's Collide.
    * DDP starting its own Boxing channel. This is interesting. No word yet if
    Charlo vs Hogan will be telecast.
    * Michael Bey has a spoiler style and if he has anything left in him it should
    tell a decent amount of Ferocious real ability. Its also an audition in front of
    a massive world wide audience for a Loma fight as negotiations have taken
    place hence GK fighting on Top Rank promotion for Lou DiBella promoted GK.
    * Demsey Mckean won his fight in 3rd rd against opponent who hadn't fought
    in 6 yrs.
    Former Aust Army soldier Justin Frost who did Tour of Duties in East Timor and
    Afghanistan new Aust 140 lb Champ.
    Jacob Ng new WBO Oriental LW Champ after 3rd tko.
    Liam Paro win pts over tough Korean opponent.

    RIP this is crazy how can he have died from a body shot in sparring? I read he had cancer as a kid I know that chemo can be very damaging to the organs but this is totally shocking he only just fought Tszyu Jnr. Condolences to his family.

    I’m told by someone close to the camp that he has a history of heart issues in the family and it could well be this. RIP COWBOY

    Shocking news about Dwight Ritchie. Absolutely tragic. He was in the prime of his life & had everything to look forward to.

    I was really looking forward to his next fight that would have been televised around the world.

    Hard to comprehend how this could happen when he hung tough against Junior Tszyu for 10 rounds with a badly cut eye.

    RIP to someone gone far too young.

    Got all the respect In the world for what he achieved but he looked bad, only from the clip of 2nd round I managed to get of someone Facebook apparently he was hurt In the first also. Dempsey would be fav if they fought.

    Very sad news with the passing of the Shepparton Cowboy.
    Ben Damon Fox " Micheal Zerafa is as or more devastated than anyone this evening
    because the two men were close friends , they were preparing each other as two
    sportspeople do in training that's all it was. For him to end a sparring session with
    a body shot and his partner to head back to his corner and then collapse , it
    was just devastating for Michael and everyone else. To go on and see how this
    impacts the Aust Boxing Community , Michael and rest of the fighters we just have
    to wait and see. Its a utter tragic day and our condolences go to the Ritchie family,
    to the three young children ( three boys 6 , 5 and six months ) he leaves behind
    and everyone else devastated by the tragedy "
