    commenced with Jai Opetia IBF no 4 against SA Kevin Lerena IBF no 3 in an IBF
    eliminator with the winner mandatory challenger to Dorticos. Lets hope Mick Francis
    can pull this off . Francis also manages Liam Wilson and Justis Huni.
    * Opetia opponent for Oct 22 will be announced anytime now. Andrew Hunt
    confirmed for this Gold Coast undercard opponent TBA.
    * Joe Goodall still recovering from shoulder surgery .
    * Mateo Tapia Dubai opponent Netherlands Gino Kanters over 10 rds. Kanters
    lost a dec for WBC Youth MW Title. Fight will be broadcast live on ESPN in
    States with details Aust viewing TBA. Tapia last fight was streamed live on
    Aust You Tube ( i only saw replay ) . When details come to fruition i will
    share the details on this thread ( not illegal ). MTK Global like myself think
    very highly of this kid and justifying are getting behind him.

    If the fight happens that fraud Larena gets exposed. Larena only faces cabdrivers and washed up fighters. When he steps in with a live body he needs Bermans bought and payed for judges to bail him out. Nielsen and Kalenga both did enough to beat him only to be robbed. I have strong confidence that Opetia will beat Larena senseless if Berman indeed makes the fight. There's a good possibility he gets robbed if the fight happens in SA but I think his team will be aware of that and look to make a statement to avoid such a scenario.

    Not really sure about taking Jai Opetaia overseas to fight in someone else's backyard. That's not really an optimal path to the top as we saw with that fight in Belgium for him getting constantly postponed & then cancelled.

    I guess it makes sense from a financial perspective although Opetaia is one of the privileged few who gets to headline shows on Foxtel in Australia. Not as PPV of course which is where the big money is but still, he appears better placed domestically than most others.

    It kind of makes sense to me to keep the local ball rolling. In saying that, if it's an officially sanctioned world title eliminator or title shot, perhaps those are the ones you need to be prepared to travel for.

    Berman will pay the judges off no doubt... But I rate Opetaia as a prospect. I think if he and his team take Larena seriously they SHOULD be able to get the job done even with corruption.

    While I think Opetai is the better fighter and will win,I agree with the sentiments of others in being weary of Opetai fighting Lerena in his backyard with south africa, as many would know, probably up there with germany for dodgy scores and officiating in favour of the home fighter

    After seeing Philip Holiday score three of eight completed rounds to Horndog against Junior Tszyu, you could be right about that.

    Apparently South Africa is where Queensland recruits boxing judges from.

    It just goes to show that Rushton and Lonergan intimidated Holiday with their pre fight slander of him. Lucky for Aussie boxing that the judges were not necessary as Tszyu ironed him out.

    A snide remark would be to say that white South Africans and Queenslanders share certain 'views' which makes cultural bonding easier, but I refuse to make that sort of comment.

    ATTENTION friends, members, affiliate members & valued readers of the Stifler's Mum thread.

    There will be a MAJOR and EXCLUSIVE announcement concerning the fighting future of none other than Jeffrey "The Horrible" Horndog on the Stifler's Mum thread early tomorrow morning Australian eastern standard time.

    I say MAJOR and EXCLUSIVE b/c Horndog himself hasn't decided what he's going to do yet. So the Stifler's Mum thread will be deciding his future for him. Right here LIVE & EXCLUSIVELY tomorrow morning.

    Unlike the mainstream sports media in Australia, we don't make up stories on Australian boxing. We keep it real, tell it like it is & more often than not, get it 100% right before anyone else has an inkling of what's going on. So that's what we will be doing early tomorrow morning.

    Keep it locked right here on the Stifler's Mum thread to be the FIRST to know what's going on. While I'm not at liberty to indicate precisely what the nature of tomorrow morning's announcement will be, I can provide this clue: "Bow-wow-wow-yippee-yo-yippee-yay"!

    BREAKING NEWS on the Stifler's Mum thread!

    Former King of Australian boxing, Jeffrey "The Horrible" Horndog AO, will be RESUMING his storied & decorated professional boxing career in the New Year!

    That's right, folks. While friends & family are fiendishly twisting his arm trying to get him to retire, here on the Stifler's Mum thread we're saying "no". In fact, not just "no", we're saying "HELL NO! HORNDOG WON'T GO, quietly into the night"!

    A few things have changed for what will be the final foray of Horndog's professional boxing career. Firstly, we weren't able to secure a train for Horndog & his fans to ride on. That's disappointing, I know, but all the big engines are hitched to other locomotives.

    Secondly, we weren't able to secure a bus either. That makes things tough I know but no-one ever said a professional boxing career was meant to be easy.

    The good news is that we were able to secure the next best thing for travelling in style during an Australian summer - an ice-cream van!

    Expect friends & family of Horndog to attempt to nobble the van in a futile attempt to prevent its departure. But here's the thing - we're going anyway so get aboard while you still can!

    Seats are strictly limited. You can either sit up front with me in first-class, in the seats immediately behind in second-class with friends, family & Kiwis who still believe in the Horndog, further back in cattle-class or right at the very back in Queensland-class. Be warned, they're not much fun back there but they do take their boxing very seriously. There may even be a few Seth Efricans among them.

    We're not going to Undisputedville, btw. The routes into that place are chockers with Australians atm. There's a Tool Train on the railway tracks & a bus with a Big Leprechaun driving it on the road in. Instead, we're going to a place that's almost as good (not really, but it's still good). The destination of Horndog's ice-cream van is Alphabet City in Mu-Mu Land!

    So sit down, buckle-up & get ready to go lickety-split! We going! Yeah baby!!

    In closing, I would just like to say keep it real & keep it Rockin Robin Blake - right here, on the Stifler's Mum thread!

    Interesting to see that Daniel Lewis is in the mix to be Timmy Tool Train's next opponent. He only has a modest pro record but his fight with Fundora was much closer than the official scorecards over there had it & Fundora would be a nightmare for any decent prospect to take on.

    So good fight in my book. Timmy Tool Train has just banished the best performed fighter off the 2012 Olympic team. If he follows up by beating the best fighter from our 2016 Olympic team it makes a statement.

    Dennis Hogan as an opponent I like for several reasons that I've already posted. Beating the former uncrowned WBO Junior Middle champ would look good following on from beating the former WBO Welter champ.

    I think Michael Zerafa will come back into the mix as a potential opponent when Victoria is open for business. Junior Tszyu v Zerafa in Bendigo is a fight I like the sound of.

    Plenty of good fights there for Junior up & down the east coast of Australia. Why go out for milk when you've got cows at home?

    Also looking forward to Justis Huni's pro debut. That's something to get excited about. If they can get him four decent fights before the Olympics (if it happens), it will improve his chances of a medal. I also noticed the latest World Amateur rankings didn't record results from the Asia & Oceania Olympic qualifying tournament. Get real, guys! Huni had a walkover result against the World #2 from Kazakhstan during that tournament that should see him seeded top 4 for the Olympics. Seriously, that Amateur organisation is shonkier than any of the pro outfits.
