    Can't see the Bey fight happening, 4 fights in 5 years does not sound good, still would be an improvement over Pena rated at 835 ffs.

    Bey fight is happening, its this weekend mate. U think bey will disapear last minute? Cant see that happening to be honest. Inactivity aside, bey is no joke and will not suddenly forget how to fight, lots of fighters now days fight once a year, it all depends on what fighters do outside the ring during long breaks, training, bad habits etc.

    My bad, can't see any reports of this fight happening anywhere. Last i heard of Bey he was talking dropping to super feather in 2019. Still if it happens it is a step up for George and i will be interested to see how he performs.

    Tim is very hittable, think Zerafa would definitely be a bridge to far for him, & Tims power while decent is not anything world class but he is developing & has alot of backing plus the platform to perform that very rarely any get. I think it's amazing the opportunities that have come his way compared to Jai Opetai

    Jai Opetaia is headlining shows on Foxsports. That's how they were able to come up with the money for Mark Flanagan to fight him.

    He will probably get David Light next who was showcased on the undercard of Tszyu's fight last weekend.

    The only thing he's not doing that Tszyu is is headlining Main Event PPV shows. Presumably Foxtel will move him across to that platform as soon as they think his profile is sufficient to sell enough buys.

    The reason Tszyu gets to headline Main Event PPVs is b/c people keep buying them.

    I wouldn't have thought understanding that is particularly "amazing".

    With Horndog's star fading, Junior Tszyu is the biggest draw in Australian boxing.

    I think that Tszyu Jnr is physically very strong but his punching power is not great. His timing is decent and should only get better. He needs to work on his defense because bigger punchers will hurt him when he steps up.

    If bey has lived the life of a boxer during his part time boxing career i see him giving george a very hard night with georges youth and work ethic getting him over the line, we will see which bey shows up.

    Yeah I think with his backing he has a decent chance now of winning a trinket belt as he does seem dedicated and appears to live the correct lifestyle if they just keep gradually stepping up the competition then within two years bring out the weakest champion in the division have hometown advantage heavily stack the deck in his favour theoretically it can be done but I still think he is lacking the natural ability to be a world champion. We don't know how he responds to being in a dog fight yet but he does have all the advantages in this country that most fighters don't get.

    ****n oath.
    ****n oath, sounds like the master plan. If zerafa cleans up horn in fashion they should avoid him like the plague.

    Yeah they would be smart to avoid Zerafa but I think there will be a lot of pressure on him to make that fight. If Zerafa beats Horn again he may get offered a world title shot so Team Tszyu could wait until Zerafa is softened up a bit and go right after Horn and put the douche bag out of his misery.
