    in order to satisfy the Gov request to keep events to a 500 person limit.The
    main event is Camilleri vs Otto.

    The PPV numbers have the potential to be respectable if this is one of the only cards in the world going ahead what with a name like Tyszu attached to it , is it available PPV outside of Australia ...?

    Horndog v Junior Tszyu should definitely go ahead.

    People need some entertainment. Great opportunity for boxing to fill the void.

    ;)
    Makes you wonder when this will end. only sports that are surviving at the moment are those with no spectators, how long that can continue is anyones guess. ;)

    Mate this virus is decimating the whole of Europe at the moment and in most countries it's still in it's infancy , it really is starting to be a concern for normal every day people, I've had work cancelled etc , not too good an outlook for the self employed to say the least , boxing will like every other sport take a back seat in peoples priorities for at lesst six months I reckon , Australia is an island at the end of the day you have a great chance to control things , good luck .

    Many Boxing , MMA and Martial Arts Gyms face financial ruin from the Coronavirus
    and many never recover in Aust. The consequences are far reaching for the greater
    community. Gyms help save the youth and adults of tomorrow from straying to the
    wrong path and i have seen first hand the benefits of Police Boy Clubs. And it
    saddens me that the youths of today will not gain this experience as i did if they disappear.

    I agree Jupp , the knock on effects of this virus in sports like boxing are going to be felt not only in sports but in the community in general for many years to come , I've noticed some not taking this virus too seriously but mate it's very depressing here at the moment it's killed hundreds here in the uk and THOUSANDS in Italy & Spain , Do not underestimate this virus lads .look at the news and listen and take government & health experts advice seriously ...good luck .

    The Olympics getting pushed back a year will suit Justis. The Asia & Oceania Olympic qualifying tournament showed he wasn't quite ready to rule the world.

    It should mean he gets more chances to fight those top two Super Heavies from Uzbekistan & Kazakhstan before the Olympics take place. That's all he's really lacking I think. Experience against the top level guys.

    Some talk this morning that Horndog v Junior Tszyu could be back on the agenda & fought solely for the benefit of a television audience.

    I hope that happens b/c no sport for six months will be hard to take.
