    Last I saw they were still doing 8 x 2 mins but I could be mistaken.

    Ticket sales for the Tszyu fight must be a bit disappointing from what I'm reading.

    Probably to be expected. Maybe Qudos was a bit ambitious coming out of a lockdown with covid cases still floating around.

    Still 8x2. Apparently Aloai goes quite well.

    I saw some clips of Innoue here in Australia he looks in great shape and means business I think our man Tszyu Jnr is going to get a decent test it wouldn't surprise me if it goes the distance. Looking forward to it I think it is going to be a good fight between two legit contenders.

    I think Timmy will tool him, MP. Tool him & school him.

    Timmy Torpedo will send him to the bottom of Sydney Harbour like one of those Japanese miniature submarines they have on display at the Australian War Memorial.

    Don't be surprised if Inoue gives up boxing & takes up body-building after Timmy hammers him.

    Too easy, Japanesee.

    Bookies at sportsbet have Timmay at $ 1.10. Takeshi at $ 6.00.
    I'm thinking of 100.00 on the jap.

    Or donating it to @f1ght3rz

    The Aussie thread could do the honorable thing and pay the sum that the disgraced DBS refused to pay, who retired from the forum for good after losing a $1000 bet.

    DontBScared is a disgrace for all the nice Aussies in here. I'd like to know if he already has an ALT account and still posting on this site. Pretty sure he does. When you read it DBS you should be ASHAMED of yourself.

    Oh Jesus. Is there a stadium big enough to hold this event ?

    How big a domestic event is the lad Tszyu fighting in Oz? As in, does it even make a blip on the radar of casuals/mainstream folk, or do you have to be a boxing nut?

    Kostya himself was a bit of a crossover star, no? Like, the average housewife might know his name?

    He has been fighting on PPV for a couple of years now.

    Initially he was tagged on cards with footy star Paul Gallen as the co main but now he headlines his own. He has sold out a few places aswell. Namely Tszyucastle ( Newcastle). Boxing is relatively niche down here these days, so if you are selling out 5-10K seat stadiums and doing good numbers on PPV I guess you could say you have crossed over to get what we call the "bogan backslapping market".

    Clealry his last name has been a help but he has become his own man.
