In the end I never got to see this fight, I was running late to get to the pub and it was over by the time I walked in!

From the highlights I've seen Mundine didn't even throw a serious punch, that is bullcrap for the money they get paid!

Correct LP...Mundine never really threw a punch and was very un Mundine like, heavy in the feet and didnt get the hands up
and was a sparring partner for Horn at best.....Horn threw the only punches and managed to connect but he lacks a bit of sophistication
IMO to go further in boxing...think he got lucky fighting the Pacman who let Horn maul and brawl him and also showed his age...
Horn probably needs a ex pug like Mundine to school him and teach him that raw punching power will only get you so far and that there is always someone with
more power than you and you cant knock everyone out and you have to beat some boxers with technique alone...

Heard today that Mundine made 38 million over his career.  Running off at the mouth paid a few bills.
DrE is no more... you ok with that harmonica man?

I suspect it's just a little too late for me to change my ways  ...

I used to be a regular at TV Ringside (the first date I ever took Ms DJC ... and I had to crank start the MG afterwards!) but I no longer have the same interest in boxing.  However, anyone who steps into the boxing ring deserves a decent payout and good luck to Mundine if he made $38M.

I heard a bloke take Jon Faine to task on the wireless today.  His comment was along the line that you play footy, hockey or cricket but you don't play boxing.  
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be . . .

Used to be an avid boxing fan and I well remember getting up in the early hours to watch fights such as Clay v. Liston etc. They would be hot topics of conversation afterwards and sort of linked into some of the momentous social developments of those years. Could not give a stuff about it these days though and certainly never watch any of it.

Cooked before he stepped in EB1!

I'm glad I stayed home and didn't spend all that time waiting for the main bout. It sounds like the undercard was rubbish, and a lot of venues and fans were very unhappy with the event. Some local publicans are in the media today saying they are done paying the thousands of dollars in fees to broadcast Australian fights. Normally at my local they won't let you in that late because they close at 12pm, but by the time the fight started most people had left and a mate sent me a txt to come and watch it as the pub had opened it's doors, further it was offering punters who had actually paid to watch it free drinks. The problem wasn't the late start, the problem was the undercard was rubbish!

When you're organizing the big dance you have to provide plenty of quality dance cards or the fans are going to be very unhappy.
