    Will there be a link for people outside of Australia to watch it? How do you rate Wallace?

    Very tough fight for Hogan, hope he can hang in there for a bit.

    I haven't seen him fight yet, Marty. That's why it's important for him to get on TV so people can see him in action & assess him properly. And of course, if he looks the goods, he will get more opportunities on tv & get matched with higher quality opposition.

    There are some decent light heavies around for him to fight that will enable him to progress his career further. Getting those decent opponents in the ring with him is where the television dollars come in.

    Australian Foxtel shows don't get televised overseas unless ESPN picks them up. That's a shame b/c the quality of the shows has really ramped up lately. There's a lot of good young talent out there. Zerafa v Horndog was a dramatic fight that the world didn't see.

    Perhaps an enterprising promoter could do a deal with Irish tv as Wallace's career progresses. In terms of potential, you'd reckon he's got the ability to surpass Dennis Hogan & TJ Doheny. If he does, it will be a career worth seeing.

    Marty highlights from 1.00 min mark. Conor Wallace won this fight by technical decision
    after fight stopped by Dr prior to 6 rd . Wallace suffered cut to right eye from head clash
    in the 4rd. Conor Fox Tv debut for Nov 23 now in jeopardy.

    DDP are trying to have the Hogan fight shown in Ireland. The fight in Aust has
    already attracted main stream media attention. Hogan was well compensated
    for Munguia fight 600 k and expect similar payday for Charlo fight.

    All well and good but Charlo is no munguia. This is a whole new level and at a higher weight too.
