    Holy **** how is Long still ****ing fighting?? Good to see Ahio back in the ring after so long, but his handlers certainly could have gotten a better foe.

    The domestic scene in Australia and NZ sure is heating up.

    There's not many HWs in NZ for Hemi to fight tbh, it was either Long or Pati. Its also too hard to pull in anyone from overseas as anyone coming into NZ has to isolate for 2 weeks and pay for it as well hence the opposition.

    Journeyman Heavyweight German Skobenko lost a bare knuckle fight to good ex amateur fighter Pavel Shulskiy on Thursday.

    Not sure if it’s worthy of the thread but heavyweight news nonetheless.

    If you guys haven’t seen TopDog before it’s well worth a watch. Amateur, pro, boxer and MMA fighters pitted against each other in good fights. Some top quality Russian amateurs male and female.

    Also, the Joseph Parker v Junior Fa fight is again in doubt with Auckland going back into lockdown.

    Is the fight still in doubt?

    Yup, Auckland needs to be in level 1 by the time of the fight (which looks likely at this stage), but at the moment, Auckland is in level 2 and if it stays in level 2, then the fight will be postponed again.

    That guy was a prospect when I was in my 3rd year in college. I finished university, got my master degree, got 3 years of work experience in and he's still a prospect.

    Bad management has slowed the careers of many heavyweights. We have a lot of "prospects" in their 30s.

    (14-0) on Saturday.

    Not a bad matchup. Ehwarieme has power, with 17 KOs in his 18 wins, and 10 of them first or second round KOs.

    Yeah I agree. He's being moved slowly and he's not big or powerful enough for HW anyway. He might wanna look at dropping to that Bridgerweight division if it takes off.
