    I've got mixed feelings about this one. I was looking forward to Michael Zerafa fighting for a vacant world title against the Brazilian who made the Olympic final. Out here. Presumably this fight takes place over there. Location is one ace that Zerafa needs to hold. All of his losses have been incurred fighting overseas. His only loss domestically could just as easily have been a stoppage win. I guess there are a few factors at play here. Firstly, Canelo getting done means GGG may not drop his Middleweight belts. So there's not a vacant world title to fight for. Secondly, Foxtel / Main Event are still playing hardball. It's hard to turn a profit from a fight in this country unless they are involved. I don't quite follow the logic of continuing to veto Zerafa fights beyond that they wanted to make an example of him so other blokes don't pull out of fights. What makes more sense to me is promoting boxing further in the state of Victoria. George fights there in a fortnight & a big Zerafa fight down there in the second half of the year would have built on that. Foxtel / Main Event's ultimate goal should be to push boxing into the mainstream nationally. You can't do that without Victoria. Zerafa is one of the best vehicles they've got for doing that. As for the fight with Mexican Mungo, apart from location, I don't like that he's physically stronger, hits harder & is probably physically more resilient. And even if you beat him like Dennis Hogan did, b/c he's the best Mexican after Canelo it's going to be tough to win a decision against him.

    I guess the bottom line, as always, is money & without Foxtel / Main Event coming to the party here, the most lucrative offer out there for him is from Mungo. It's a guaranteed pay day without the hassle of putting up money to stage it here so if that's what's in his best interests, okay.

    Charlo for me although I thought that last time. I'm mostly interested in what happens after that. I reckon Small Charlo stays at 154. It will be Beanstalk or Timmy Tool Train in with him after that. Kind of hoping it's Beanstalk. Would like to see Timmy have another one over there against someone else before taking on the best in the division. Hopefully with some decent sparring under his belt before he does.

    Could Castaño or Charlo lop down the beanstalk? Or would he smell the blood of an Ameri-can(Argentin-ean)?

    Castano v Beanstalk would be a sight. Whoever wins between Charlo & Castano has a murderers' row of #1 mandatory contenders to face. They will however have had the advantage of facing the second best in the division twice in fights as a lead-in.

    Timmy’s not up to the class of Charlo and Castano, what a great fight between these two just witnessed.

    If you had told me 3 years ago Tim Tszyu would be challenging for the undisputed title against a Charlo I would have told you to put the pipe down and rethink your life.

    Tszyu 2.0 has exceeded my expectations by quite a lot.

    We are yet to see anything from Tim of the level that was displayed by both Charlo and Castaño in their two fights. But if he continues to exceed my expectations how much further will he go?

    I seriously think he can beat Charlo. In reality Charlo made Castano look a lot better than what he is. I think that Tszyu needs to tighten up his defense because Charlo could spark him out which is why I would like to see Tszyu in there with another tough test before he fights Charlo. Charlo seems easy to hit and I think Tszyu can match him for boxing skills and physical strength I think it would be a great fight.
