    I remember watching Malignaggi against N'Dou where he had to have his haircut between rounds. Idiot.

    Aamir made a succesfull defense the more i watch him the more I am convinced he will never be in Mayweather/Pacquio league.On a side note his younger brother Haroon has said he wants to represent Pakistan and not UK in the Olympics, is he a medal hope?

    Aamir has faced one "puncher" (and an incredibly raw one at that) in his entire career and was flattened in 30 seconds

    Pacquiao would probably do the same to him in a couple of rounds whilst Mayweather would simply toy with him for long enough to justify whatever outrageous fee he was paid for doing so

    As for his brother, who knows?

    Boxing is an incredibly cruel sport

    No, thats the reason he wants to represent Pakistan.

    “I really wanted to box for Britain at the Olympics ever since Amir won silver in Athens. I looked at what he did and dreamed of going one better
    “But I’ve never had a look-in with the senior England squad, not even a letter. What used to happen was they would call me up a week before an international and ask if I could box, but I knew it was only because someone had pulled out and they never really wanted me,” Haroon said.
    “I’d have liked to have fought for Britain at the 2012 Olympics, but that isn’t going to happen. I’ve spoken to a lot of English boxers and they said if they were me, they would go for it.
    “When I went over to Pakistan, they were offering me a house and a car and a driver, if I wanted to stay there

    Yeah but...it happens. Pacquiao got knocked out by some random unknown Filipino. How much can you read in to a 30 second fight?
    I don't think anyone's expecting Khan to be as good as Pac or Mayweather anyway. He's a decade younger than them for starters, who's going to be better than him when they go?

    The worrying thing about Khan is that he was sat on his backside 6 times by various journeymen before being KO'd by Prescott - the guy was a disaster waiting to happen

    I have no doubt that his technique has improved under Roach but until his management put him in against a "live" opponent, doubts will remain

    No mention of Katsidis's win over Mitchell here? He not a big name in Oz?

    Was a proper demo job and Mitchell's the man who beat the man who beat Khan.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Katsidis and Darchiniyan are easily Oz's best fighters but the headlines are grabbed by Green and Mundine who fight cab drivers and/or guys years over the hill

    It's a sad indictment of how gullible the public is really

    Mmm, is kinda annoying, as social said, we hear very little about boxing outside of Green/Mundine and their apparent greatness. Despite being a 3 time world title holder, even Darchiniyan barely rates a mention.

    Jeez the Green-Briggs fight was a dire set of events for the 'sport'. Can't believe Green backflipped and came out and defended the guy today - obviously worried about having pay people back or being held somehow complicit. Have to wonder whether bookies will still be willing to take bets on future bouts involving any of the players here.

    Kinda highlights the answer to Brumby's question here before the thread died last time - boxing doesn't rate down here because its got no credibility anymore.

    Don't know what is funnier, the fight itself or Green talking about wanting to set up a stand up bout with Brock Lesnar.

    Wow, I just watched it.

    WTF was that all about?
    YouTube - Danny Green Vs Paul Briggs

    Im not accusing anyone of diving or cheating. Its quite possible something strange happened to scramble Briggs head. The big question is, why the hell a World Champ belt (no matter what org) is contested a guy well outside the top 100 who struggles to get a clearance to fight on medical grounds and has been retired for nearly 4 years?

    Terrible matchmaking at all levels from the Org to TV to the promoters to the fighers and their camps.

    That's just surreal. Charitable reading is that Briggs swallowed it and the less charitable one is he took a dive. Green suitably nonplussed with it.

    One of the comms said the fight couldn't get sanctioned in NSW and I can see why. Briggs looked like a fat middleweight.

    Briggs in no shape to fight Green

    Doesn't make for good reading.
