Jeff Horn = Madison Square Garden April 14 ....      What a great lift for our local boy.

    His opponent is $1.08 fav in American markets.

Horn a big chance ...    Crawford is coming up to a much stronger division after meeting no hopers , most of his early career .   Is several years older than Horn and can be hit, judged on previous replays.
   He will find Horn very awkward.

Very efficient win by Anthony Joshua today over top kiwi Joseph Parker in Cardiff. It was Joshua's first distance win in 25 fights. Joshua totally controlled the pace and distance of the fight with tight jabs and close footwork for 12 rounds. Never really opened up into a heavyweight slugfest. The referee never let them get close together which suited Josua and his big reach advantage Parker looked too cautious and looked more like he didn't want to get caught so was reluctant to take a risk and open up. He did get inside Joshua mid fight and had him backpeddling, but AJ regained control and just let it play out with his jab from there.

Jeez the Horn camp are a pack of loudmouths. Works if you're Ali but silly if you're destined to be a one fight champion who got lucky beating an aging champ on the slide. Crawford is going to destroy him.

So that was an entertaining fight today

For those who missed it, the loudmouth Irishman got dismantled, but was overshadowed by the fight after the fight. Footage is everywhere, I'm sire you've all seen it already

Well Finally it's ON again     Horn v Mundine.   Suncorp in November.

Great to see The State Government involved again ,   Will work wonders for Tourism and there's no one to equal Anthony Mundine at drawing a crowd.

Horne met a Good one when fighting the weight battle ...   Lost to Crawford ,but was never going to last long in the welterweight division anyway.       Jeff's best friend that night was the referee me thinks .

Superb athlete is Mundine , However,      Age does weary us and I'm not
expecting him to worry a stronger Horn too much at these higher weights.

       I think the biggest surprise will be the HUGE                                                                                    purse this meeting will generate.
     Good Luck for all involved,   VERY Interesting promotion.

Happened to be walking by the pub when the fight started, saw my first UFC live fight and it was a good one with a great result.
Enjoyed the after fight party too Smile

No "Super fight" but entertaining.     Boxing needs a lift in OZ , Brings in a dollar.            I was wondering why Horn allowed that US promoter to con him overseas for the defence.       He would have got more money here.
    I don't expect Horn to stay in the game long.

McGregor is not really a mixed martial artist is he? He's basically a puncher with limited wrestling skills. Very easy to take down.

McGregor seems to me a bit like an Irish Dave Warner. The Irish must be terribly embarrassed by him. Still, you can’t jump into the crowd like that or have a couple of your entourage try and finish the Shamrock Bogan off.

Wonder what his opponent will be slapped with? Not enough to interfere with the rematch, I’d imagine.

New footage exposes McGregor as Khabib’s punishment begins

CONOR McGregor was cast as a victim after being attacked by three Russians. But there was an overlooked moment beforehand.

He insulted his opponents country, father and religion. On the last point many islamophobes on this forum would agree with him Ouch
Just a classless, low life thug who would be in prison if not for UFC

Much preferred World Championship Wrestling when Spiros Arion and Mario Milano would at least be gifted the odd bout against Larry O'dea and Ron Miller, because .... multiculturalism!!!

The Russian showed he is weak by being so offended by the fake verbal abuse, that he has now lost his belt before he put his hand on it.Ermm

McGregor wasn't good enough.Ermm
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

The Russian is the definition of stupidity. Choking out McGregor "tap out" was the best revenge for his trash talk.
Has now jeopardised his $2 million purse, % of the gate , his belt and future fights Unhappy

The Russian will fight again, they will slap a fine on him, he's worth too much to them.

Mcgregor shouldn't fight again for his own safety, he is a father now.. This Russian will destroy him again, McGregor can't counter his grappling..he latches on then doesn't let go. Not great to watch when they just roll around floor for 4 mins, but he's damn good at it from what I saw.

Haven't watched that much UFC, watched bit more lately, has McGregor gone backwards? All I heard from mates that follow it is how good he was..ive seen him fight Mayweather then this Russian and was very average both times
