Daniel Geale takes on IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester in Germany...you can't beat a true blue aussie...   




By Melissa Green


Daniel 'Real Deal' Geale (24.1.0 15KO) is a quiet lad from Van Diemens land, Tasmania who followed his dream of becoming a champion in the world boxing arena. Moving to Sydney he joined up with the Grange Old School Gym, training under the watchful eye of Graham Shaw and the Grange team. His dream of becoming a world boxing champion could come true on Sunday the 8th May when he takes on Sebastian Sylvester (34.3.1 16KO) the current IBF middleweight champion in Neubrandenburg, Germany.


A former IBO middleweight world champion, Geale's only loss is a controversial one against Mundine that could have easily been a victory for team Geale, now he moves forward in the professional world of boxing. Bigger legit titles have come his way with much more honour and respect, the IBF middleweight title has been worn by other elite world middleweights and now it's Geale's time claim it.

A well disciplined and dedicated boxer has seen Daniel work his way through the ranks landing him a fight in Oct 2010 with Roman Karmazin for the IBF title eliminator, winning the fight convincingly with a technical knock out in round twelve. In June 2010 Sylvester defended his IBF middleweight title against Karmazin also going the 12 rounds winning the fight by a split decision. http://www.youtube.com/watch?

A modest boxer, Geale has not bragged, dogged, or bad mouthed anyone on his journey, he is devoted to a career in professional boxing. In Daniel Geale we have another Australian boxing great on track to winning a legit world title, he fights with pride and commitment, using superior skills and discipline to compete in the ultimate world of boxing. These are the mastery skills he needs when he takes his first step outside Australia challenging experienced boxing IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester.

Many of the boxing world say it is a tough challenge going into the heart land of Germany to fight one of their top boxing champions but I believe Geale has got the necessary skills to win. He is physically and mentally fit, trained to deliver a skilful range of accurate punches, balanced with speed and evasive boxing prowess Geale can bring the title back to the land of Australia, let's hope the rest of Australia gets behind him on his return home.

A bit of talk going on about Greens' oppononent Krzysztof Wlodarczyk swallowing a few too many pills, taken to hospital/coma, family problems then back in training not long after. Fight fell through with Marco Huck so the next option was taken fighting Green in Perth, his 3rd defense of the WBC title...putting something together now :)

I've not been well  :( but here it is guys and gals...


Green v Wlodarczyk WBC cruiserweight No1




   
Former IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green shows courage challenging Polands number one cruiserweight champion and WBC world title holder Krzysztof Wlodarczyk on Wed night at the Challenge stadium, Perth. Not one to take a backward step in the ring, Green who was stopped by Antonio Tarver in the ninth round defending his IBO title in July has secured a fight with one of the worlds top boxers in the cruiserweight division.

   
   Green has successfully chased down another international boxing cruiserweight champion for a tough fight in the land downunder just six months after learning a lesson the hard way against former light heavyweight USA champion Antonio Tarver. Shaken and bruised in the ninth round his corner threw in the towel for the first time in Greens career, no bogus one sided fight here just an awakening that will hopefully work to Greens benefit in his fight for Krzysztof's shiny WBC world cruiserweight belt.

   
   Krzysztof 'Diablo' Wlodarczyk aged 30 has 48 fights under his belt, losing 3 and knocking out 32 along the way. Wlod is a former IBF title holder going the distance with highly ranked cruiserweight Steve Cunningham and has won nine of his last fights, five of them by KO. Defending the WBC title twice within 7 months of each other seen him go the full 12 rounds against Polands top cruiserweights, the hard hitter with solid defence will cause Green a bit of curry in the ring forcing him to use his power and technique to come away the victor of the belt.
   

   Some boxing enthusiasts say he targets the old, some say he boxes the not so experienced young but all in all Danny Green & Green Machine Promotions deliver good interstate and international fights that get our and other countries flags flying high in the boxing rings of Australia. He takes the risk and has been rewarded for his dedication to a sport that he loves and I for one hope he kicks butt in the ring tonight :)

   
Note: Good on Tarver for giving Greeny a great fight and a stunning wake up call, let's hope Wlod brings it and we all get to see a great fight. Awesome line up on the undercard with a couple of world titles on the line in the lesser weight division...

Reading user comments on the Perth Now news website and most comments were hanging shit on Green. I reckon he comes across more humble than most boxers and he gave it a bloody good go the other night. Unlucky in the end. Most comments were probably from people with no idea on boxing and for what ever reason have a dislike for Green. I like the guy. Never met him but the stepson had a chat to him one night and reckoned he was really easy to talk to and happy to talk to a young guy.

Danny “The Green Machine” Green (31-5, 27 KOs) faced the media for the first time following his TKO loss to WBC World Cruiserweight Champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (46-2-1, 36 KOs) at Challenge Stadium in Perth on Wednesday night. Green said he would not be rushing into a decision on his boxing future and that he was just going to relax, ‘chill out’ and be a normal person and a normal dad again.

He was proud of the way he fought against Wlodarczyk.
 
“We were so close to pulling off the fourth world title and pulling off a fairy tale victory” Green said
 
Green had a comfortable lead on all judges’ scorecards with scores of 97-93 on two cards and 96-93 on the third at the time of the stoppage in round 11.
 
“I’m actually pretty proud and pretty happy with the fact many people said I should retire after the lacklustre performance against Tarver, and I believed and my trainer Angelo Hyder believed that wasn’t the best I had”.

"I spoke with my family and they agreed and supported me and I thank them and love them for supporting me on that occasion, I was able to prove that I'm a three time world champion for a reason and I was able to dominate the champion, I'm more happy with the fact I was able to prove a lot of people wrong.”
 
“Angelo and I prepared perfectly for Wlodarczyk and as you saw, we dominated the champion for 10 rounds”
 
“We worked him out better than he worked us out, but unfortunately it just wasn't to be."
 
"I'm 38 years old and I outhustled and dominated a 30 year old," Green said.

"Last year I defeated a 30 year old in BJ Flores who was undefeated, and then I was beaten by a 42-year old so age means nothing.

"I'd like to walk away still knowing that I can beat the best in the world, but then the competitive side of me says, do I continue?"

Green has only managed to get a few hours’ sleep since the fight and watched the replay for the first time yesterday of the big left from Wlodarczyk that ended the fight. “It was a massive punch, it was quick, it was hard, it was timed perfectly, he took me out with a shot that would’ve knocked out a cow,” Green said.
 
“Not many men would’ve been able to regain consciousness in a minute, let alone stand up within 10 seconds”.
 
“I’m proud of the fact that I was still struggling and fighting with every ounce of whatever’s left inside my body to make it to try and win that world title for everyone.’
 
“Wlodarczyk proved why he’s a world champion, he stayed calm, he weathered the storm and he did what he had to do to win a world title.” Green said.
 
Green even managed to find a positive from Wlodarczyk’s punch late in the fight.
 
“There’s always a silver lining, I’ve had a nose that has been out of place for 10 years and he’s actually straightened my nose up, so my sunglasses actually fit much better now, so I have to thank him for something.” Green’s face is swollen, his jaw is not broken, but needs stitches for three cuts to his lip. He was asked by a member of the media if he would take off his sunglasses, but he was content to keep them on as he didn’t want to scare anyone he said with a grin.
 
Before the presser today, Green dressed up as Santa Claus today for the kids at his sons day care centre.

“I was dressed up and had sunglasses on and my son still knew it was me because he knew my voice, so it backfired on me a bit, but the other kids still enjoyed it” Green said.
 
Green will now spend more time with his family – wife Nina, daughter Chloe and son Archie as he takes some well-deserved time off to relax following an admirable performance on a fight card that is possibly the best ever seen in Australia.

WBC World Cruiserweight Champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (46-2-1, 36 KOs) says he can beat anyone in the world following his 11th round TKO victory over Danny Green (31-5, 27 KOs) at Challenge Stadium in Perth.
Wlodarczyk took some time to relax near Scarborough Beach in the morning after the fight and was supporting plenty of battle scars from his war with Green.
He said he had great respect for Danny Green who he describes as one of the best fighters in the world and predicts that Green could also become one of the biggest promoters in the world.
“Danny Green is a class act, after the fight he came into my dressing room to congratulate me, he is a great sportsman and a gentleman” Wlodarczyk said
Wlodarczyk said he was sure the fight would end with a KO but just did not know which round.
Danny Green was leading all judges’ scorecards with scores of 97-93 on two cards and 96-93 on the third at the time of the stoppage.
Wlodarczyk is hoping his next fight will be a unification bout, and when asked about a possible fight against high profile American Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver who beat Green earlier this year, Diablo simply said “Anything is Possible”.
Wlodarczyk also took the time to congratulate the new IBO Super Featherweight Champion Will Tomlinson (18-0-1, 12 KOs) who claimed the vacant title with a points decision over Alan Herrera (26-4, 17 KOs). Tomlinson was showing some victory scars of his own with 20-30 stiches on his head.
Green Machine Boxing received very high praise from well-known promoter Leon Margules who said he has seen many boxing promotions all around the world for many years and this was by far the best promotion he had ever been a part of.
“Green Machine Boxing put on the best show and promotion I have ever seen, it was amazing” Margules said
Charles Giles, the president of the British Boxing Board of Control agreed and said that Green Machine Boxing were very professional and treated them so nice and with utter respect.
Wlodarczyk took some time to relax near Scarborough Beach in the morning before going to the airport to head home to Poland.

He gave it his best and nearly pulled it off 'awesome job especially after coming off the shock loss to Tarver in July.

Green Machine Promotions is one of the best boxing promotions in Australia, great to see new and exciting boxers from other countries bring it to Australia...

“Brixton Bomber” Danny Williams Not Done Fighting Yet - Demands Return With Manuel Charr
By James Slater: Though he may well have disappeared off the radar of a number of fans due to his quick and decisive May 2010, 2nd-round TKO loss to Dereck Chisora, British warrior Danny Williams has not retired. Though he himself admitted he was a “shot” fighter after the loss to “Del Boy,” and went as far as announcing he was all done, Williams - who turns 38 today - retreated to Germany and, boxing on a Latvian licence, picked up two wins over so-so opposition.

The former Mike Tyson conqueror then went in with the unbeaten Manuel Charr on the Sturm-Macklin bill (SKY Sports declined to televise Danny’s fight) - losing via a somewhat controversial 7th-round TKO. Williams, looking in decent enough condition despite weighing 275-pounds, seemed to be on top in the 7th, as he unloaded a barrage of shots. Then, his face swollen badly, Williams saw the referee stop the fight as Charr fired back with a few of his own - there was just over a minute gone in the session at the time of the stoppage.

Had this been a higher profile fight, fans would likely have kicked up a fuss, but as Danny’s career looked to have been over for a while no-one moaned too loudly. But now, as has been reported by South London Press, Danny is expecting a rematch seeing as how “a few people have made a complaint to the German board.”

“You can see the fight on You-Tube, I was boxing really well,” Williams said. “We were both tired [in the 7th-round]and I unloaded 15 to 20 punches and then backed off to recover, he [Charr] threw about two back before pushing me and the ref jumped in to stop it. It was so premature. I’m expecting a rematch to be ordered. It was a complete joke. Next time I’ll have to stop my opponent of fight somewhere else.”

Clearly, Danny doesn’t sound like a guy planning on quitting any time soon. 26-year-old Lebanon-born Charr, 18-0(10), seems to be a decent enough fighter, if nothing special, and it’s true Williams had his moments against him. But while one can see why Danny is aggrieved at the admittedly quick stoppage from the referee, it’s unclear what a win would do for him if he managed to get one in a rematch. Williams, 43-10(33) has now been stopped six times and, as he admitted himself a while back, his punch resistance is nowhere near what it once was.

Danny, a great guy if ever there was one, seems to have a real problem giving up the sport he loves. But how much longer will the near-40-year-old continue to risk his health in the ring? We can only wish the gutsy warrior the best of luck with whatever career he has left.

Danny Wiliams has retired, geez it must be hard to match a boxer 'some ask for too much $$$$ & some don't want to take the risk, you've got to get a name to make it in the game.

Risk does equal reward but having the $$$$ would make it a whole lot easier AND apparently no-one has any these days :P

Alex Leapai round 1 KO victory over Troy Weida short and smashing the way it should have been so well done to Alex for not pussy footing around.

A nice worthy opponent to kick off the year would be fantastic, maybe a rematch with Travis 'Freight Train' Walker a fight people want to see and Alex would take.

Alex Leapai Australian Heavyweight Champion.
[/size]

Australia’s heavyweight champion Alex Leapai (22.3.3 17KO) has dominated the heavies of Australia, he has the skills and clubbing power to mix it with the top dogs of the division and now looks for worthy international contenders. Ranked No13 by the WBO he is focused on climbing the ranks defending his championships and closing the gap between himself and the top five heavyweights of the world. To help guide and take him all the way is trainer and manager Noel Thornberry.

Noel Thornberry helped get Alex to where he is today, before Noel came along Alex’s trainer was draining him of weight and not on the same boxing path as Alex. Taking over the training in 2006 Alex had a great winning streak, dominating Nathan Briggs in 2007, going toe to toe with Michael Kirby the following year and knocking out veterans Colin Wilson in 2009 and Bob Mirovic in April last year. Noel’s knowledge of the boxing game is respected by many in the boxing industry, training his brother Ricky Thornberry to three world titles: Rod Carr IBO 1995, Joe Calzaghe WBO 1999, Sven Ottke IBF 2002 winning the first super middleweight title and going the distance with Calzaghe and Ottke.

Samoan born and raised in Australia from the age of eleven, Alex prides himself on honouring his two home countries and looks forward to the day of declaring a world victory for the land down under. To get to this level of  boxing he trains hard, working with people experienced  in the science of boxing, when  Alex reaches peak fitness and spars quality international boxers his preparation will be on track to contend against world class heavyweights. Keen to step it up and take on more high profile fighters Alex moves forward with Noel and team Leapai standing firmly by his side.

For Alex to move closer to a shot at a world title Noel has been working on his conditioning and
fitness. Noel speaks to KMA about what Alex needs to do to get his body in to peak condition   for a  fight at elite level of world boxing, sparring and his belief in Alex's ability to win a world title.

 “Alex is only scratching the surface of his potential and the main way to get the main intensity out of him is to put another big man in the corner, then the basic of basic instinct will come out, if you're going to hit me hard , I'm going to hit harder and harder, that's the way to get the best potential out of Alex”

“We are in a hard position they spar one day but not the next or fight a few rounds then their tired and hurt and don't want to do any more sparring. We are concentrating on getting the best preparation we can, Alex has done as much as he's done with limited resources and can still beat world class fighters. I know more than Al can imagine how much more he's got in him, I've seen boxers go from here to here and they do this when they get the right preparation and if he gets that he can fight any heavyweight in the world”

After watching Alex spar 6 rounds, followed by physically challenging cardio work we sat down to lunch for a three way chat with manager and trainer Noel Thornberry by our side.



KMA steps into Alex Lionhearts corner for a one on one boxing chat;

Who makes up team Leapai?
“ Noel and Ricky Thornberry, Kenny Fuller, Chris Cole and my family”

How you did find your way to the boxing ring?
“My dream was always to play NRL but my fathers dream was always the boxing game, boxing is in my blood, it's my game”

So boxing was always your dads dream and it was in your blood but how did you stumble across boxing?
“I'll be honest the David Tua and Lennox Lewis fight stopped my family Samoa and New Zealand and during the fight dad (Faataui Leapai) said something that I have kept in my heart he said “I wish one of my boys could be like that guy” I was sitting up the back and I heard it, something  sparked  it later on down the track and now I'm here and I'm going to make it happen”

How did you end up in the gym with Noel?
“ It was after I fought cruiserweight champion Nermin Sabanovic when former WBA middleweight champion Maselino Masoe watched the fight, he told me I should have a chat with Noel who was the manager of Maselino at the time, he gave me some advise and I'll never put it down because Noel has got me to where I am today”

What is your greatest boxing moment?
“When I beat Nathan Briggs, I was the biggest underdog in that fight, the judges, the ref's everybody was on Nathan's side. I just had to let my hands do the talking, if it had to be eight knock downs to win the fight then that's what I had to do”
Noel –“ Alex dropped Nathan three times in the fourth round which is an automatic stoppage but the ref said the last knock down was after the bell. I walked away and after the fight I said why didn't we get a warning, they wanted Briggs in the fight so they kept it going, it shouldn't have happened”

Your fight with Mark de Mori in 2004 is very well noted in the boxing industry, did you cross paths with his management in the following years to organise another fight?
“Yes and they don't want it. I support Mark in whatever it is he does but at the end of the day we are here to give the people what they pay for. I'll fight anybody and if I've got to get in the ring and fight him I will. We have tried a few times but there's always a catch, they want to much money, I've never turned down a fight and never will. I'll tell you from my heart I'll give people a show, I get in the ring to fight that's why they call me the 'Lionheart', that's what people want to see, for me it's bombs away, we're heavyweights. Boxing has gone backwards we're lucky to have the likes of Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, the heavyweight scene is dead and I believe I am the one to liven it back up again”

Who has been your toughest opponent and what have you learnt from the fight?
“Travis Walker, the reason why is we didn't spar I was sparring Sonny Bill Williams I'm not taking anything away from Sonny but I was helping him but for that fight I needed to fight the big boys. I needed guys who were explosive willing to punch. Do or die whoever gets knocked out gets knocked out and that's the type of sparring I needed to prepare for the fight. It is hard, heavyweights of Australia just don't want to spar, they wont to kiss and cuddle or something laughs Alex. We're there and we want to spar, I want to be pushed around and at that time I needed some heavy sparring, this time we needed to bring someone over”



You were a little, how could you say it 'gassed?
“I gassed because my body wasn't conditioned for the fight, my fitness was there but my body wasn't bashed it needed to be bashed to prepare for the fight.

So you've learnt from that, you can't go into a fight not conditioned so if you have to fly someone in then you need to fly them in?
“ I'm getting good sparring now my last fight I fought Jason Barnett it went one round. I was sparring Michael Kirby and Anthony McCracken, boxers like that come here to fight so when I fought Barnett nothing worried me because I did the proper sparring”

Paul Briggs called your win over Travis Walker a shallow victory do you have any comments on these tough remarks?
Noel – “Sour grapes because Alex knocked his brother out. He shouldn't be making comments like that considering what he did over in Perth to Danny Green. Travis looked at the judge he was leaning on the ropes”

“Alex looks at me and says he would fight Travis again and win again”

Who has been your main support/rock to get you to where you are today?
“My wife, she has to put up with a lot of stuff we have six kids and to be able to handle then, run the home and keep pushing me to train is a big job. Noel is always kicking my butt if I'm not training , he'll ring me up and make sure I'm doing the right thing”

When was the time you realised that you have the skills and power to overcome the heavyweights of Australia?
“ My fought my first pro fight with Mark de Mori I got fight of the year. I started going down hill after that my trainer at the time Barry Style wanted me to go down to cruiserweight, I had to lose six kilos in one day just to make the weight. It was not until I met Noel, Noel he teaches you a lot  of what the other trainers don't teach their fighters. He teaches you to believe in yourself, there are world champions out there but they are no different to you, it depends on how much you want it. Ever since I've been with Noel we have had our ups and downs , I've had my own problems but he's always been there. Put it this way look at where I am, I wouldn't be here today without Noel I am on my way to becoming No12 in the WBO, I'll never change where I am today my goal is to become the first Samoan and Australian to be heavyweight champion of the the world”

Not a good way to start the year, except if the holiday is in a nice place.


Geale is fighting over in Tassie on the 7th of Feb/29th Feb now the 7th March they will figure it out one day soon I hope, Kali Meehan is on the card and Billy Dib.


Looks like Jamie Myer is up first @ the RSL Southport on the 17th Feb.



Hope you had a great festive season...

Alex Leapai round 1 KO victory over Troy Weida short and smashing the way it should have been so well done to Alex for not pussy footing around.

A nice worthy opponent to kick off the year would be fantastic, maybe a rematch with Travis 'Freight Train' Walker a fight people want to see and Alex would take.


Looks like Kali Meehan is taking on Travis Walker on the Geale card in Tassie.

Next date to look forward to is 18th March exactly 11 days after Daniel Geale's Mandatory defense against Osumanu Adams in Hobart.

Alex the Lionheart Leapai is ready to take a bigger step on the world heavyweight scene fighting a man that went 12 rounds with Vitali Klitschko WBC champion. Noel and his team have nailed an exciting fight for all to see, bringing in Kingpin Kevin Johnson America's No14 top heavyweight.

Team Leapai know the job that is in front of them and are tackeling it like kings, flying Demetrice King in for top grade sparring. Demetrice has been in the ring with Johnson in 2006 and went ten rounds with Tua in March last year, Tua won on points.

Alex is looking at fighting internationally in his next fight if all goes well on Sunday 18th so if you want to see a hard hitting night of boxing come on down  :)

Australia No1 Alex Leapai v USA No15 Kevin Johnson...

Australia's number one Heavyweight champion Alex Leapai  is scheduled to fight American Kevin Johnson in a battle between two KO Kings.  Undefeated in his last 17 fights Leapai is about to embark on a new level of boxing challenging Kevin Johnson, Johnson has 25 wins with one loss to WBC Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in December 2009 by twelfth round decision. Competing for a shot at the worlds best heavyweight Leapai is on track to accomplishing what he set out to do 7 years ago.

“ It was after I fought cruiserweight champion Nermin Sabanovic when former WBA Middleweight champion Maselino Masoe watched the fight told me I should have a chat with Noel Thornberry who was the manager of Maselino at the time. Maselino gave me some great advise and I'll never put it down because Noel has got me to where I am today”

A life long opportunity was delivered to Alex in May 2005, Maselino graced Alex with a few brotherly words 'Get in touch with Noel' he has never looked back. Through hard work, determination, love  family and faith Alex has climbed the heavyweight ranks and now defends  the IBF Australasian title against experienced heavyweight Kevin Johnson. Alex has worked his way through the Australian heavyweight division prepared and ready with a team full of pride, a man on a mission and victorious in the ring against Australia's best heavyweights he now looks outside for  world contenders to test him on his journey of boxing the worlds best. Sparring has been difficult for team Leapai when you're at the top quality sparring is no easy feat - Michael Edwards, Solomon Haumono, Anthony McCracken, Pieter Cronje are a few ready to spar with Leapai.

Leapai has gained boxing experience needed to box at the top, power in both hands that deliver a combination of punishing blows knocking out twenty of thirty-one challengers, six by brutal round one KO. His left is a thud, the right uppercut is an impressive and powerful punch that's dropped many experienced challengers add the hunger to achieve these are  boxing skills not to take too lightly when entering the ring with Alex 'Lionheart' Leapai. He is a patient and pressure fighter that will favour him over the cautious callous boxer in Johnson, Johnson's counter defensive work rate will need to be A grade to defeat a relentless boxer like Leapai that's given height and reach advantage away and in the majority of his fights. Johnson has never been knocked out with one loss, one draw and twenty-five wins to his name the preferred test at the right time for team Leapai. Leapai focused and headstrong knows the time is right to deliver, with over ten years boxing experience, patience and a combination of breath taking heavy fisted blows these are the credentials needed for Australia's number one heavyweight to achieve his goal and challenge the worlds best.                                 

April the 1st at Doomben racecourse will entertain die hard & excite fans, please officials and many interested in the world heavyweight division. Boxing is a business but with every business you need hard workers for it to succeed, blend the two and you have a team aiming high to achieve their best. Time, money and patience is unpredictable and sometimes a pretentious part of world boxing, put trust in your team and management and you have the necessary business and backbone - Thornberry Promotions are the backbone supporting  Leapai in his destiny to fight worlds number one heavyweight.

Thornberry promotions have been running for over 25 years in Australia, taking two of Australia's world champion's to international title's. Ricky Thornberry lost to WBO super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe by points in the UK in 1999 and Maselino Masoe  challenged German Felix Sturm in 2006 for the WBA middleweight title both fights going the distance. Noel Thornberry has the knowledge, approach and experience in training boxers to get a shot at the top, Alex is on his way.

Sunday Bloody Sunday was full of Blood, Sweat & Tears.

(http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/xx140/kmaboxingaustralia/107copy.jpg)

Doomben racecourse opened the gates to a rowdy bunch of boxing fans ready to watch Australian heavyweight champion Alex Leapai defend the IBF Australasian heavyweight title against USA challenger Kevin Johnson. Noel Thornberry and Stephen Deller put together a good card outdoors providing guests and officials an open boxing venue with a view and atmosphere people in world boxing appreciate.

Pre main event, the crowd was treated to a light middleweight debut fight, Cane Cassels winning his first professional fight against Matthew Seden. Super middleweights Glen Fitzpatrick finished his boxing career with a draw against Marlon Toby, retiring a happy man and a cheerful goodbye from the crowd.

Dean Miller showed Edwin Samy who the superior boxer was winning the vacant Queensland Super middleweight title, in the lighter weight division Todd Kidd outboxed Joel Cruz who stopped the bout short charging at Kidd causing a head clash and cutting Kidd’s forehead in round four, final score 30/27 30/27 30/27.

Main Event…Alex walks back to his corner at the end of round 6 “Fuck”
Alex came out focused strong in the first round landing a combination of solid blows, pressure and hunger to achieve his best Alex tied Johnson on the ropes with a blend of thudding punches in the second. Third round Johnson connected with his jab and started to gain some distance ending the round with a left hook. Fourth round Johnson used his defence and jabbed with confidence using his right, left jab hitting the body, Alex retaliates left to the body and right up top. Rounds 5 & 6 Johnsons jab breaks through Alex’s defence landing powerful direct blows troubling Alex. 7 & 8 Johnson is on top of his game, controlling the fight with his jab and experience. Round 9 the lion is gone his heart fights on but Johnson’s clean solid punches to the body and head have made their mark and the fight is stopped after a flurry of punishing blows. Round 9 TKO victory to Kevin Johnson.

The fight on Sunday between Alex & Johnson was a great day and now that I have seen a world title live I want more time to experience and write about our top world challengers. Well done to Alex for boxing above his trained level, looking forward to watching him box and train his way back to the top.

Daniel Geale v Felix Sturm September 2nd in Germany…

Australia’s leading boxer Daniel Geale 27.1.0 15KO returns to Germany in three months to take on their number one middleweight titleholder Felix Sturm 37.2.2 16KO. Highly ranked, the well-respected WBA super middleweight champion has defended the title fourteen times all in Germany, his seventh defence was a unanimous decision against Sebastian Sylvester in November 2008.

The first Australian to bring a title back from German shores he’s ready to do it all again with the support of The Grange management, trainer Graham Shaw and promoter Gary Shaw it is a sure thing that we will see him come home with another world title. This will be Geale’s third defence of the IBF middleweight title he won in Germany May last year against Sebastian Sylvester and the biggest fight of his boxing career.

Australia amateur boxer Damien‘Super’Hooper aims at Olympic Gold

…“DON’T”…



With the recent backlash about Hooper being booted out of the Olympic boxing team in the media I wanted to get some Hooper fever of my own, organising an interview with the help of heavyweight Anthony Fowler at The Boxing Shop in Mt Gravatt. Damien has been training at the gym run by Gareth Williams after his break from the Sydney camp last week a decision discussed between Damien and Olympic boxing officials after a disagreement with head coach Don Abnett. Returning back home to family in Dalby and extended family at the gym training with former Olympian contenders Brad Hore & Don Broadhurst  provided Damien some much needed time away from the hype and pressures of winning  gold at the London Olympics.

Taking up boxing at the tender age of eleven boxing at the Bungeeda Sport Centre in Dalby and under the watchful eye of Chris Seng, uncle and cousin Troy Hooper helped guide Damien in the right direction staying out of trouble in his home town of Dalby. A natural athlete playing rugby league a sport he excelled in and loved, enduring punishing blows on the field ultimately clashing with his love of boxing ending in the decision of devoting his life and future to a career of Boxing Australia.

Twenty years of age and a stellar youth of world boxing experience, medals and history making achievements in the world championships and Youth World Olympics it’s no wonder the boxing community is buzzing with the anticipation one of our boxers are in with a good chance of winning Olympic Gold. Fighting at 81kg light heavyweight division ranked No2 behind Julio la Cruz who he lost by one point in 2011 world championships he knows what needs to be done to be No1.

Damien spoke with KMA for an update chat about his boxing career…
…A Diamond in the Rough…




How did you start boxing?
“I started boxing when I was eleven for something to do and my cousin (Troy Hooper) was boxing at my uncles (Troy Hooper snr) gym then we started doing in competitively. When my cousin quit so did my uncle so I had no-one to box with. Back then I was getting in trouble with the law, I met Chris Seng through this trouble at the cop station having a yarn to him he told me he was a boxing trainer, he used to box. He told me he would like to train me and kept me boxing he cleared me away from getting in trouble”   

Are you still friends with Chris today?
“Yes, last week I did some training with him, he is a good bloke”

He would be proud of you?
“Yes he is over the moon”

What age did you start training with Chris?
“Fourteen/Fifteen”

How old were you when you represented Australia?
“Sixteen when I won the Australian title, seventeen when I represented Australia overseas at the world championships (2009) the youngest on the team and I made it the furthest”

Gareth “What I find amazing about that is Damien was seventeen and he went to the senior world championships before it being in his age group.
“I’ve been to the senior before competing in the youth”

In 2010 you won the first Indigenous and Australian gold medal at the Youth Olympics in Singapore and silver at the Youth World Championship in Baku in the middleweight division.
“Yes the first Indigenous and Australian”

Gareth “Australia has never won a youth world gold medal at the Olympics. Not just indigenous, No Australian has ever won Olympic gold at a world championship” “I was the reigning world champ”

Yes we know you are a Black Caviar, I get it 

Damien and Gareth both have a laugh.   
Gareth “that’s right”

You have won three gold medals at the Europe International tournaments this year.
“Yes, I have won previous gold medals in years before but I just can’t say them all off by name. I have won a fair few gold medals internationally at tournaments”

How many medals do you have?
“From International tournaments, heaps hey”

Geale and Fletcher did well at representing Australia, winning gold is a dream of many boxers. What do you have that they didn’t to win the Olympic gold medal?
“Them boys they are good boxers but I think no-one in Australia has done well like I have in amateurs internationally. All these things I’ve done they just went over there and didn’t win gold like me, even one of the boys that was on the team when they went over there said they didn’t win as many golds as I have”

What technique, What is it in you that is winning all these medals?
“Well I’m a smart fighter and my ability being indigenous I have a lot of skills and ability. It is natural but mainly it’s all my experience as well, I’m a very smart boxer I can read my opponents and with all that experience I can adopt to my opponents ability’s, their skills and know what to do. Maybe some of the boys that haven’t got that experience in Australia don’t have the same experience I do”

I hear Don Abnett has filmed boxers so you know their styles and you’ve boxed a few of them along the way. Do you have more experience, knowledge of your opponent than they did?
“Probably, I have only fought a few of the top opponents but I know where I stand and what I’ve got to do”

Gareth “Damien was picked for the NTID (national talent identification Program) it's an indigenous program where they were highlighted for co-ordination, arm and height span, jumping and natural athletic ability. I think Damien’s better because of his attitude, since he’s been sixteen years old if he was asked to fight world number one he gets excited “yeah, I’m going to bash these pricks”. Where as most people in Australia boxing if they get chosen to box number one “Oh god I’m fighting number one” Damien just wants to beat them all”

You switch styles when boxing, will you be doing this at the Olympics?
I guess I will it’s a tactic I’m trying to score points with different angles and different punches will get them points. If something’s not working this way then I’ll try the other way”

Who has been your biggest rock of support to get you to where you are today?
“Don Abnett, because he’s been part of my preparation since I was sixteen and taught me all that I know. I’ve been living for four years at the Institute of Sport on the scholarship.

You have mentioned Bernard Hopkins as one of your boxing inspirations.
“The path he made himself, that’s inspiring by itself. He started boxing late in life and was in prison for so long, he got out and just started blowing up, that’s crazy I like hearing stuff like that it motivates you”

Who is your favourite boxer?
“Lionel Rose because he went and beat the previous Olympic champ, there was only one world title back then and he won that is the biggest thing ever. I don’t think any born Australian boxer has done that, to do that today you would have to be unified champ”

“Lionel Rose did it”
1948-2011

ON'YA GREENY!



For getting in and having another go after your loss to world champions Antonio Tarver and Krzysztof Wlodarczyk. Green gave it his all against Poland's No1 cruiserweight only to luck out in round 11 with a punishing left crack landing Green on the canvas, taking the fight four months after suffering a loss to American champion Antonio Tarver. Tarver retired Green in 9 rounds after delivering solid punches leaving Green bleeding badly and wobbly on his legs, was Tarver using an sport enhancing drug as has been proven in his last fight against Nigerian cruiserweight Lateef Kayode?

No-one can take away Green's power providing boxing Australia with entertaining and worthy fight cards that's pleased all in attendance. After the Briggs mishap he kept his promise and has done his best to deliver two top international champions to Australia in 2011 kicking it off with the IBO cruiserweight title defence in Nov 2010 against USA No3 cruiserweight BJ Flores. He wore the brunt of some heavy fisted blows last year bruised, bloodied and in the case of the Tarver fight a walking round nine ko in the waiting but to his credit Green's back on his feet and ready to box again.

Danny Santiago is Greens next opponent another American with thirty seven fights, thirty one wins, 19KO's under his belt a worthy opponent at this time of his career. Santiago is the same age as Green and has been in the ring with world light heavyweight champions 'Magic Man' Tarver and Zsolt Erdei, his last outing was challenging top number ten Beibut Shumenov for the WBA and IBA light heavyweight title late last year.

Next Wednesday at Greens home city Perth, Challenge Stadium will once again host an international bout sure to greet Green fans with a night of fists, adrenaline and pure aussie pride.

All aussies boxers are out of the finals at the London Olympics...Damien Hooper lost his super to z Russian 11-19, Jeff Horn was the last aussie boxing in the ring losing 21-13 to the Ukraine. Naomi the first lady to box in the first year of womans boxing at the Olympics unfortunately lost in her first bout, she had to fight in the middleweight division to make the Olympics giving away 6 kilo's to her opponent losing 24-17.

Hooper is turning pro, who he will fight under is the next question? Some say he needs a trainer who will teach him discipline, take out the cocky in Hooper and you will have a better boxer. Needs a good smack over his bare bum  ;)

DANIEL GEALE Aussie IBF world middleweight champion returns to Germany :)



IBF middleweight champion Daniel Geale and the team from Grange Old School Boxing return to challenge Germany's No1 WBA super middleweight champion Felix Sturm. This is Geale's third defence of the IBF title he won from Sebastian Sylvester mid last year and Sturm's fifteenth defence of the WBA title he won from Samoan, Maselino Masoe in 2006. Geale 31yrs is in for a gruelling night against Sturm 33yrs a fight likely to go the distance, two elite boxers ready to move forward in the world of professional boxing.

Technical boxers with the ability to create opportunity's in the ring provides precise timing and accuracy to land crucial points in their challenge to unify the IBF and WBA  middleweight titles. Sturm has boxed 309 rounds with 42 fights 37 wins, Geale has boxed 195 rounds with 28 fights the only loss on record to Mundine still in dispute to this day.  Proving to be the superior boxer in his fight against Sebastian Sylvester in May last year, Geale was awarded the points victory in a country known for it's home town advantage and the odds stacked against him only to return a year later to do it all again.

These are the fights the world wants to see and get behind, Geale is the man doing it with class, pride and honour representing Australia the true way. Skill, instinct and conditioning will benefit him on the night along with the guidance of Graham Shaw, his wrecking ball of a trainer sure to be keeping a close and watchful eye on Geale throughout the fight, link that up with the backing of Gary Shaw, Bill Treacy and Garrie Francisco you have a team ready to rock n roll. Let's hope the challenge of fighting Sturm on home soil in front of a passion enthused crowd pays off in the end and the judges are as loyal to their job as Geale is to representing his country and boxing community.

Boxing at it's best, fighting the best putting their titles on the line to unify and become lead players in a division of professional boxers willing to fight at the top of the game delivering A grade boxing for all to see deserves respect 'Go get him Geale' Tune in this Sunday and get behind Australia's IBF world champion Daniel 'Real Deal' Geale...

Should have been stripped but he vacated the belt and took off with his tail between his legs still claiming to be the man. I am watching on to see who he's next BIG opponent is in America, apparently he has linked up with 50cent who has now become a boxing promoter, Khoda no longer in his team apparently.

Ken Sutcliffe from Wide World of Sports...
I have long-admired Anthony Mundine as an incredible athlete, a brilliant showman and a passionate and generous supporter of his community. He has shown again in recent days that he can get himself into trouble when it comes to articulating his thoughts on a range of subjects he feels strongly about. He clearly went too far when questioning Daniel Geale's heritage and by dragging Geale's wife and children into the conversation, as any reasonable person would agree. To Mundine's credit he manned up and offered an unreserved and completely genuine apology to Geale's face on the "Wide World of Sports" program.
Play video: Watch Mundine's apology
Mundine also wanted to voice his frustration with several big picture issues, but I had to interrupt him and ask that he focus on his apology to Geale and the upcoming fight. Everyone is well aware of his concerns and there was a real danger that the true purpose of his appearance would be lost among another wandering soapbox tirade. What we were left with was a very sincere, heart-felt apology, as he realised he had hurt not only Geale, but Geale's family and a lot of members of his own community.
What I find most frustrating about Mundine is that all the good work he does behind the scenes is completely overshadowed by these outbursts. People who really know "The Man" know just how much effort he puts into supporting his community. He is an extremely generous person who believes firmly in the need to improve things for his people and he puts his money where his mouth is. He is a doer and he is a great role model for children, showing that hard work and clean living are the keys to success.
Everyone knows that Mundine is a showman who has made a healthy career out of promoting his own fights through some outrageous statements. You only have to ask Geale and he will tell you that this fight will only be huge because of Mundine’s ability to promote it. Geale is a terrific fighter as he has proven on the world stage, but he realises that he would struggle to generate the interest that Mundine can generate. The big pay day they will both enjoy will come from Mundine's involvement and the fervour he creates among fans, who either love him or want to see his head knocked off.
You only have to look back at his career to see just what a freakish sporting talent he is. I've followed him since he was a teenager coming through the rugby league ranks. He could do things on a football field that others simply couldn't and he probably should have played for his country. He was good enough at basketball to be approached by NBL scouts, and he was a brilliant cricketer as well. He is just a truly gifted athlete who has in many ways opened the door for people like Sonny Bill Williams to try their hand at several sports, to defy those who tell them they should focus their careers on a single sport.
At the end of the day, this will be the biggest fight in Australia since the Mundine v Danny Green fight. It will be a sell-out and will be watched in pubs and clubs around the country and across the world. A lot of people will be hoping to see Mundine lose, but there are also a lot of people who know the real Mundine, know how generous he is and know that he really is a proud leader for his community. He might stumble occasionally in trying to articulate himself, but his heart really is in the right place.


A couple of warranted comments by boxing enthusiasts...

"Alot of people like myself arnt "haters" coz what comes out of mundines mouth we all know that crap is promo talk, we have turned on mundine coz he achieved alot in boxing had high potential to make it big but never made a real go of it, yeah we know he fought some name fighters and won titles but he has never really stepped up to the plate when the challange has been presented to him..and i do respect all the charity work he does and all the credit he does not recieve. but instead of always wanting to be the bad guy , mundine could of been the good guy of aussie boxing u can achieve more with that image ...remember lionel rose and all the fans he had to greet him"

" That is good for Ken to acknowledge Chocs work and commitment in community services but the fact of the matter is he is continually having to appoligise for his verbal miscalculations. I real man would not have to keep appoligising as a real man would keep what is thought of to him self when in the spotlight. Bottom line is he needs to shut up and be the man he is away from the spot light and talk positive not negative"

Asked what he now thought of Mundine, Geale said: ''I have never really sat down and had a chat with the guy so I couldn't really give you an opinion. Maybe he is a great guy. A lot of people say he is a nice guy but all I see is what is in the media and a lot of people don't like that.''
Among them is Sheena, who told her husband he had no right to accept Mundine's apology when the boxers appeared together on Channel Nine's Wide World of Sport last Sunday.
With her father being a NSW Koori, like Mundine, Geale said Sheena had more right than him to be angry.
''She was at the press conference but she actually wasn't there at that moment when Anthony was saying those things, so that was probably lucky,'' Geale said.
''Everyone was talking about it afterwards, and my wife was angry but I don't believe he meant it the way it came out. I think it just came across bad because he just basically compared himself and the way, I guess, that he represents his people to me having a white wife and white kids.
''It came across that he was better because he has got black kids, or my kids aren't as good because they are white, and that did offend me. If he had pushed it too much further I think I might have done something.
''But what hurt the most was how much it offended everybody else in my family and even the people in Tasmania. My nan was really angry; she was wild.''
Geale suggested the comments were a tactic by Mundine to unsettle him ahead of the fight.
''I think all of it, everything that happened last week, was an attempt to get into my head,'' he said.
''But that is not going to work.''
Instead, Geale believes he has a psychological edge over Mundine, saying: ''I think I have been in his head for a long time.''
Geale is referring to their previous bout, at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in 2009 for the IBO middleweight title, which was won by Mundine in a controversial split decision.
The loss remains Geale's only defeat in 29 bouts, but the 2002 Commonwealth Games gold medallist said it was a ''stepping stone'' for bigger and better things.
His split points decision over Sylvester in Neubrandenburg last year was the first world title win by an Australian boxer in Germany, and Geale did it again when he beat Sturm in a unification bout in Nordrhein-Westfalen last month.
However, Geale said he had wanted the chance to avenge his loss to Mundine.
''I think I surprised him a lot and I think I surprised a lot of people around Australia as well because I was relatively unknown before that fight,'' Geale said.
''I have had to wait about three years for a re-match, so it definitely does serve as motivation.''
Mundine admitted after their first bout that he had barely studied any footage of his opponent but Geale knows the three-time world champion will be better prepared this time.
''People are writing him off a bit but he is the type of guy who steps up for bigger fights, so we are not expecting an easy fight,'' Geale said.
''He has got a big ego, he doesn't like losing and he is a good athlete, so he is going to train hard and he is going to be focused for this fight.
''He will be doing his homework, and this time I am sure he will be watching all of the tapes on me.''

GREEN READY TO WIN IBO CRUISERWEIGHT TITLE BACK ON ANTONIO TARVERS BIRTHDAY... :)

Today is the day Danny Green 32.5.0 takes on NZ Heavyweight Shane Cameron 29.2.0, a fight the Mountain Warrior's been keen to take on and believes he can win. The IBO title is up for grabs after Antonio Tarver was stripped failing a drug test for using steroids after his fight in California against Lateef Kayode on June 2 this year.

Some people say that Green should be fighting Kayode 18.0.0 for the title and why not the fight between Tarver and Kayode went the distance so it makes sense that Green should challenge the No1 Nigerian for another shot at the IBO cruiserweight title. Who knows if Green wins and still can't shake the buzz of boxing he may offer Kayode another legit shot at the title.

But for now Australia and New Zealand win the title shot in Melbourne at the Hisense Arena pleasing the fans keeping boxing alive and kicking on our screens and in our arena's. It will be a crowd pleasing fight sure to entertain all who attend, Green wants his title back and Cameron wants to take it back home living up to his end of the agreement shedding 9kg for the opportunity of boxing for his country with the chance of taking home  the IBO cruiserweight title. He knocked out American Monte Barrett with a crushing right fist and he could do it again if in the right position at the right time but Green is a smart boxer using his ring experience, skill and power will prove to challenging for Cameron on the night.

Green Machine Promotions have put together another great night of boxing for our young champions, IBO super featherweight Will Tomlinson 19.0.1 fighting the semi main event against Irving Berry 22.3.2, his second defence of the IBO title. Tomlinson's last fight against tough Mexican Daniel Ruiz 27.4.1 was cut short with a few people questioning the outcome, I'm sure he is keen to get back in the ring to prove he is the people's champion.

Geale to help fire victims

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing
 
IBF middleweight champion Daniel “Real Deal” Geale will take a day off training in Sydney to travel to Tasmania on Monday to offer words of support to the victims of the bush fires that has ravaged the state in the past week, despite his IBF title defense against Anthony “The Man” Mundine being only ten days away on January 30 in Sydney. Geale will also give out several signed boxing gloves. Geale is recognised as the greatest boxer produced from Tasmania and there are many feel that he will soon be recognized as the best Australia has produced if he defeats Mundine and then accounts for WBC champion Sergio Martinez and WBA champion Gennady Golovkin in 2013.

IBO middleweight world champion Daniel ‘The Real Deal’ Geale ready to defend his title against Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine

 
By Melissa Green


IBO middleweight world champion Daniel Geale (21-0-0 13KO) will challenge former world super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine (35-3-0 23KO) on 27th May 2009 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Queensland. Ranked as the top two contenders in Australia and world top ten of their division, a win will advance the IBO champion to test his skills against other experienced world pugilists. WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm and Arthur Abraham are worthy opponents that Geale and Mundine have mentioned for future fights.


This is an essential fight for two of our top boxers to establish who will move forward into the spotlight of ultimate fighting in a world of prestige boxing. IBO world champion Daniel ‘Real Deal’ Geale is a disciplined boxer with great boxing sense, using these skills to out box Australia’s best earning him respect and admiration along the way. Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine enjoys a challenge and appreciates progressive opportunities to test his boxing skills at different levels of the fight game in boxing Australia. Mundine will need to dig deeper than in his previous fights to beat a strict and demanding Geale.


Geale and Mundine have gained recognition from various boxing organizations, competing against reputable boxers of similar ilk. In June 2008 Geale defeated Serbian Geard Ajectovic over twelve competitive rounds, successfully defending his IBO title. After Geale’s victorious win over New Zealand boxer Daniel McKinnon in December 2008, he delivered a solid first round knock out to Canadian Ian McKillop on March 11 2009. Conditioned and ready, Geale enters the ring confident his technique and boxing experience will shake Mundine’s ring dominance. Geale’s will to achieve a higher world ranking will see him use superior boxing skills in a powerful fight to retain his IBO title.


“I’m more ready now than ever, I’m hitting my peak both physically and mentally. I’m in a great position, I’m at the peak of my career and Mundine’s career is nearing the end. Everything is going great, I have no injuries and training hard every day”


Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine is a man of many words, who backs up his pre fight hype with cultured boxing skill inside the ring. Winning thirty five composed fights since turning professional in March 2000 he has proved to boxing officials and fans he is a gifted boxer. Looking outside Australia for his next contest, Mundine is focused on gaining Geale’s title to move forward and challenge boxers at the same level of world boxing.


Mundine has had some set backs with his infected eye and hip mobility issues. He is confident that he still has the speed and skill to get in the ring and match it with a younger and determined Geale.  Focused on getting the job done they have been training hard, pushing themselves physically and mentally. Win, lose or draw this will be Mundines last fight in Australia, he will be looking to fight a champion for a world title. Geale is confident he can win and talks about beating Mundine and boosting his boxing record. “I am young and hungry, this is my time” focused and keen to take on the mouth of boxing, Geale’s mind is set on a victory over his challenger and keeping his belt. With the support of his team at the Grange Old School Gym and trainer Graham Shaw it is sure to be a night of boxing excellence.


The Brisbane Entertainment Centre will be centre stage for one of Australia’s most powerful match ups of the year. Fighting on the undercard are heavyweights Alex Leapai (14-3-2 10KO) and débuted Sonni Bill Williams, hard hitting boxers who will punish the contender challenging them.

GEALE READY TO SEAL THE DEAL...






IBF World Middleweight champion Daniel Geale is ready to even up the score against the controversial twelve round IBO split decision awarded to Mundine in May 2009. The IBO Middleweight title was handed over to Mundine under a frown from many who witnessed the fight, Team Geale from Grange Boxing Gym challenged the decision resulting in the IBO ordering a rematch that never took place Mundine dropped down in weight to light middleweight, some saying to avoid the rematch.

Geale pressed on to bigger a better things not letting a little glitch in the boxing system get in his way, challenging Russian Roman Karmazin in October 2010 winning the final round by TKO. Next test in line was German Sebastian Sylvester for the IBF Middleweight title May 2011, the fight was in Sylvester's home of Germany, Geale winning a split decision in a first for boxing Australia bringing home world worthy IBF Middleweight title :) Never one to back down from a challenge Team Geale headed back to Germany Sept 1, 2012 defending the title for the third time against WBA super middleweight title holder Felix Sturm winning another tough split decision 'WOOHOO'.... IBF & WBA Middleweight Champion from little old Launceston, Tasmania. Always loyal to his home town Geale kept his promise hosting two Grange Boxing events in 2011 & 12, recently heading back to inspire and add a positive touch to fire ravaged rural Tasmania in the final stages of his training preparations.

Geale has unfinished business to take care of, ready to settle an old score once and for all moving forward to a boxing world full of more competitive fights ;) I make no mistake in Mundines desire and training commitment for the opportunity to box for the IBF Middleweight title. Be it his mouth or fist, Mundine hasn't the strength or power to stand up to Geale at this stage of the game. Geale doesn't stand alone, in the ring yes pound for pound more than capable, outside the ring he has powerful management both in and out of Australia, a quality team to take care of business...That's boxing today at it's best!

Congrats to Geale and the Big Boys behind him ;) he left the mouth on the outside and drove it home on the inside, that's what counts and that's what we were all waiting for. What an awesome display of pure aussie boxing at it's best, Geale has the tools and team to take him all the way to the tippy top  8)

I wasn't that keen on promoting the Khoder promotion at all but Alex was fighting say no more. Nice to see some gentlemen of the sport speaking their mind  8)

http://www.couriermail.com.au/sport/boxing-mma/circus-gives-sport-a-black-eye-as-sbw-bout-makes-australian-boxing-an-international-laughing-stock/story-fndeeomn-1226579531618
 
FOR the past two years Australia's top heavyweight boxer Alex Leapai has been carrying Sonny Bill Williams, looking after him like a nursemaid to make sure he doesn't get hurt.

Now the No.10 ranked heavyweight in the world is left to clean up the stinking mess the fighting footballer has dumped on Australian boxing.

Every time they've sparred, Leapai, who supplements his small boxing purses as a truck driver in Logan, has had to go easy on the controversial Roosters recruit.

 Williams' manager Khoder Nasser, the promoter of the farcical fight with South African Frans Botha on Brisbane nine days ago, would always insist in the gym that Leapai not hit his charge too hard, just nurse him along.

But this week Leapai and most of Australia's leading boxers have come out swinging in defence of their sport after Williams and Nasser made Australian boxing an international laughing stock.



The shameful Botha bout was suddenly cut from 12 rounds to 10 as a badly hurt Williams faded late and in the grubby aftermath there have been allegations of bribery and claims that Botha tested positive to a banned substance.

Leapai is particularly angry at Nasser, who rocked up to the promotion in Brisbane looking like an unkempt Gilligan, complete with silly white hat. In the process he made the fight game and its officials look like utter fools.

"It's the real boxing people who have to deal with the damage left behind,'' Leapai said. "We train for hours every day and make huge sacrifices to win real fights.

"Khoder brings a circus into town, puts on a joke fight as the main event and wrecks the sport for everyone else. He makes his money and then takes off. All you hear about is another boxing scandal."

Leapai has not only worked as a sparring partner for Sonny Bill but appeared on his undercard on February 8, knocking out American Matt Hicks in the first round.

He only took the fight for a very small purse because he needed the work after spending most of 2012 out injured with a broken hand.

Conversely, Nasser takes home 20 per cent of the gross plus expenses from all the fights he promotes, which on February 8 could have been as much as $150,000 as his share.

Leapai's manager Noel Thornberry said it would be the last time his fighter worked for the controversial manager, who recently split with Anthony Mundine after more than a decade together.

While some Australian boxers such as Mundine and Danny Green have made small fortunes from boxing, most Australian fighters struggle to make a living and are continually battling for recognition.

Australia's Sakio Bika, one of the world's best super-middleweights, fights a final eliminator for the WBC title in Atlantic City this afternoon, but is virtually unknown even in the Kogarah street where he lives.

He holds a win over Sam Soliman, the No.1 contender for Daniel Geale's world middleweight title, and is expected to manhandle unbeaten Nikola Sjekloca, of Montenegro at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

But he will probably have a tougher time being recognised at Sydney Airport when he flies home.

Recognition is a problem even for Sydney's world featherweight champ Billy Dib, who defends his IBF title against undefeated Russian Evgeny Gradovich in Connecticut on March 1. He says the awful stink around the Williams-Botha fight will linger for a long time and will only damage boxing's credibility.

"If people are dumb enough to think these sort of fights are real boxing fights then I feel sorry for them," Dib says.

"They should come to watch me and Daniel Geale instead.

"We are real world champions.

"In the days when Jeff Fenech was the champ he was a mega-star but now more people would know about a farce like Sonny Bill's fight than me against Gradovich or Geale against Sam Soliman."

For Soliman, a professional fighter for 16 years, there is an immense sense of frustration over the way Khoder Nasser has stained his sport.

"These circus fights get more publicity than me beating Felix Sturm in Germany," Soliman said, "And Felix was one of the biggest names in world boxing with something like 20 world title bouts.

"People who really know boxing know that these football fights are a farce but unfortunately a lot of people get sucked in."

Jarrod Fletcher, Brisbane's 2006 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and conqueror of the gold and silver medallists from the 2008 Olympics, says he's sick of outsiders "making a mockery" of the sport he loves.

"I've spent my whole life in boxing, striving to be the best in the world," he says.

"To see it being tarnished like this, it's just disgraceful."

Australia's most successful boxer, Jeff Fenech, says he's got nothing against footballers fighting because "the punches still hurt whether you're a footballer or fighter".

"But I can't stand it when people take boxing for a ride and do it harm," he says.

"There are so many real fighters out there getting up to run at 5am, fighting hurt and cut and sore and making a fraction of what these 'celebrity' fighters are making.

"Boxing is a hard sport and it hurts me to see it treated with such disrespect."

unfotunatly history shows boxing has been full of situations like this, it was not hard to work out it was gonna be a sham, the footy club would not have wanted their golden boy to be injured, but he was commited to the fight. i reckon all these types of fights should put up a bounty or a guarantee that the fight will be genuine and all efforts will be made to see the fight through to its rightful conclusion.if the boxing leadership had any sort of guts they would lay down some rules regarding these types of fights and enforce the rules and let the promotors carry the cost of any fuckups.

Badly Faded James Toney Returns to the Ring This Weekend, Won’t Consider Retirement.

COMMENTARY | By this time next week, we'll know how well "Lights Out" James Toney fared against heavy-handed Australian slugger, Lucas Browne. The 44-year-old, 84-fight veteran is scheduled to take on Browne in a twelve-round heavyweight contest at the Convention & Exhibition Centre in Melbourne, Australia this coming Sunday, April 28. And while most main event fights are met with anticipation, the best this one can hope to generate is morbid curiosity.
 
Fight fans with a frame of reference going back to the early 90s will recall Toney as an elite middleweight/super middleweight who walked the line between picture-perfect technical mastery and old school grit. The prime Toney perfected the art of hitting without being hit, twisting and angling his shoulders to duck and roll over, under, and around shots while firing back crisp, accurate counters. A virtually flat-footed Toney looked the part of a sitting duck, but proved to be one of the most elusive targets of this era. That was the prime James Toney.
 
The James Toney of today is about sixteen years removed from his prime and, if he enters the Browne fight at the same weight he fought his last heavyweight contest, at least eighty pounds above his optimal weight. He's also about ten years removed from his last legitimate, meaningful victory-a ninth round TKO of a past-his-prime Evander Holyfield in 2003.
 
More disturbing, though, is the fact that Toney has been showing signs of serious boxing-related health issues over the last several years. With an increasingly bad garbling of words and an obvious slowing down of reflexes, the veteran fighter has recently shown signs of stiff and unresponsive legs-the tell-tale sign of when a fighter is beyond the point of no return.
 
Upon his arrival in Melbourne on Sunday, Toney reportedly looked especially frail.
 
The fighter was slow to respond and almost impossible to understand, causing the Australian media to react with concern over the opponent brought in to face their homegrown heavyweight product.
 
Toney's team would attribute the garbled speech and delayed reaction time to a grueling 24-hour flight and try to allay concerns by commenting that they have Toney checked out by a well-respected neurosurgeon every six months, just out of precaution.
 
"He's not going to quit fighting," John Toney, James' father and corner man assured the media.
 
Toney may not be able to quit, even if he wanted. The former middleweight, super middleweight, and cruiserweight world champion is reportedly deeply in debt to the IRS, currently owing as much as $354,000 in back taxes even after the agency reportedly seized his full $500,000 payday for the 2010 farce of a fight with UFC legend Randy Couture.
 
Needing to make a living and still owing a tremendous amount of money, Toney is going about earning a living in the only profession he has really known. But as meaningful bouts get tougher to find and the American public grows increasingly uncomfortable with watching him fight, Toney is being forced to travel the world to play invading foreign villain against hometown heroes. However, by taking his show on the road, he's also at greater risk, putting his health in the hands of a foreign promotion that only cares about the man as a one-time resume-filler for their star.
 
Toney's upcoming opponent, the 34-year-old Lucas Browne, is by no means a world beater. In fifteen pro fights, the late boxing convert is undefeated with fourteen knockouts, but his opposition sports a feeble combined record of 157-185-16 and Toney, even a badly shot version of Toney, could very well represent the best opponent he has faced in a four-year pro career.
 
But even if James Toney gets blown out by a fighter who wouldn't have been good enough to be a sparring partner back in the day, "Lights Out" will keep pressing forward. He has to. And there's nobody with the authority to stop him.
 
Take one step north or south of the border, hop on an airplane east or west, and what little regulation that exists in the United States completely disappears. Like it or not, for as long as Toney can keep himself upright through the ring instructions, someone, somewhere will be willing to pay him for a gig as a human sacrifice.

This Sunday at the Convention Centre in Melbourne Aussie Heavyweight Lucas Browne will take on 44 year old Heavyweight James Toney. Browne a former kickboxer is putting his fighting skills, hunger and focus in to aussie boxing, so far he has shown his worth beating aussie heavyweight champ Col Wilson early in 2012 in his 11th professional fight. Signed by Hatton Promotions his next two fights were in the UK with successive wins, China next on his agenda at the end of 2012 once again the victor for boxing Australia. Ranked No2 top heavyweight in Australia is leaning heavy on Browne to take on No1 Alex Leapai in a great aussie stoush all are keen to see  8)

First is Toney, a head strong solid fight will be great...

It's good to hear of an Aussie working towards the top in boxing. I've seen a couple of his more recent fights and he's quiet good to watch compared to the snorefest most of heavyweight boxing is these days. I'd still love to see him fight Ben Edwards though, boxing or MMA.

ALEX LEAPAI V JOHN NAPARI…


April 1, 2012 former IBF Heavyweight Australasian champion Alex Leapai took a step closer to fighting the world’s best heavyweights challenging American Kevin Johnson. Alex knows what it’s going to take to fight at the top, no side stepping and putting trust in his management to make the right career move at the right time. Was Kevin Johnson the right opponent at the right time, most probably not but what a vital learning experience for team Leapai sampling a taste of skill and power at top level world of boxing.

Moving forward eight months after the Johnson defeat Leapai boxed in Hong Kong successfully claiming two Australasian heavyweight titles next fight early February against American Matt Hicks in Australia adding another KO to his record. Some say soft opponents for the level of boxer Leapai is? I’d say team Leapai are regaining momentum in the lead up to bigger and better days for aussie heavyweight boxing. Lucas Browne is another great Australian heavyweight stepping up and testing his boxing skill and strengths, a fight between Alex and Lucas is a fight we are all looking forward to in the near future. But for now Ghanaian No1 John Napari (18.0.0) is next on team Leapai’s list of redemption fighting at the Brisbane RNA Convention Centre this Thursday night.

Australia number one female Featherweight champion Shannon O’Connell fights for another shot at a world Featherweight title tomorrow in South Africa. Shannon  7.2.0 from Slacks Creek, Brisbane takes flight to South Africa challenging WBF Featherweight champion Gabisile Tshabalala 8.0.1 resolute to make her mark in the world of boxing.

Shotgun Shannon showed brutal determination and strength eight weeks ago in South Korea stepping up in weight, boxing her first professional ten round world title fight against WBA Featherweight champion Hyun Mi-Choi. It was Mi-Choi seventh defence all based in South Korea, a dual fight and a sweet taste of world level boxing for Shannon, bruised not hesitant in her agenda, healed and prepped Shannon is ready for her fight challenging South African  WBF Featherweight champion Gabisile’s third defence of the title.

All the best Shannon*

LUCAS BROWNE v TRAVIS WALKER




Aussie heavyweight Lucas Browne was scheduled to fight UK sparring partner Richard Towers in a Commonwealth title eliminator on Fox Sports tomorrow night but due to visa issues Travis Walker will be the main event match up for Browne. The late cancellation from Towers has added a bit of spice to the ring, Walker has troubled two of our Aussie heavyweights shaking Leapai round 4 in 2010 and winning a 6 round TKO against Kali Meehan in March 2012.

“The Towers cancellation was released on Saturday and fixed with a great result by Monday a grand effort by Australia boxing promoters and managers, I for one do not want to see a failed Fox night of boxing in Australia so hats off to all involved in the prompt resolution for Thursday night fights at the Melbourne Pavilion”.

Browne's record stands at 16 straight wins with 14 knockouts, pushing forward with his boxing career he takes on all heavyweight challenges that come his way recently claiming the vacant WBF heavyweight title in April against US veteran James Toney by UD. Walker is no walk in the park having boxed 189 rounds compared to Browne's 60, they are both of same height, age and stature enjoying boxing at it's best. Freight Train Walker is a smooth boxer with ring smarts a sharp jab and always comes ready to fight, US born Walker 39.10.0 with 31 KO has had two fights in Australia winning fans and respect as a repeat offender in the current heavyweight division. Browne has developed as a heavyweight world contender ready to take the next step  putting his boxing skills to the test against worthy opponents in his zest for success. Kudos to him if he can let his fists go and add another win to his record.

FOX Update on Boxing Australia


JEFF Fenech, the dominant figure in Australian prizefighting for the last 30 years will be honoured on Friday August 2 when the Australian Boxing Hall of Fame elevates him to the status of 'Legend' alongside Les Darcy, Johnny Famechon and Lionel Rose.
 
He will be the special guest at a ceremony at Melbourne's Crown Casino lauding his achievements when, as an irresistible fighting machine between 1985 and 1991, he became the first man to win three world boxing titles while undefeated.

As the chief second for all of his world title wins I've been asked to say a few words at the induction ceremony about a fighter who at his peak was a one-man demolition unit, mowing down great champions and contenders such as the Mexicans Daniel Zaragoza, Marcos Villasana, Mario Martinez and Carlos Zarate, the Americans Jerome Coffee, Greg Richardson, Georgie Navarro and Olympic gold medallist Steve McCrory, the Thai Samart Payakarun and the Puerto Rican powerhouse Victor Callejas.

Until his career stalled after a controversial draw with Azumah Nelson of Ghana in Las Vegas that seemed to permanently sap the steam from his engine, Fenech was a remarkable boxer who achieved extraordinary results despite chronic asthma and a pair of fragile fists that almost always shattered upon impact.

This week, though, the boxer I once labelled "The Marrickville Mauler'' was more interested in talking about the achievements of his former charges - two of Australia's greats that he nurtured as a trainer, Daniel Geale and Vic Darchinyan.

They were among a group of amateurs he signed after the 2000 Olympics that also included Sakio Bika and Danny Green, who he also put on the path toward world championships.

Fenech says that although he is no longer in Geale's corner he has always supported the fighter he trained in the early stages of his career and says Geale's American debut against former British, Commonwealth and European champion Darren Barker on August 17 should be another victory for Australia's IBF world middleweight champion.
 
"Daniel has gone to Germany twice and won decisions there in world title fights so he knows how to handle the pressure of an overseas fight.''

Fenech is helping Darchinyan prepare for a rematch with Filipino Nonito Donaire, who handed the heavy hitting veteran southpaw his first defeat in 2007.

MUNDINE TARGET WELL PAST IT

ANTHONY Mundine might be talking up a planned fight with faded legend Shane Mosley but here’s what highly respected US boxing commentator Kevin Iole said recently of the American’s skills as he nears 42 years of age.

"One of the saddest sights in professional sports is trying to watch a one-time great who is well past his or her prime still trying to compete,’’ he wrote.

"It would be a smart move to hang up his gloves, as there is no more dangerous sport for a man whose reflexes are diminishing. Boxing has no sympathy for the old, the slow and the less-talented.

"Mosley would be smart to walk away. He still has his faculties, though some have expressed concern about the slurring in his speech. But he's passed the medical requirements to be able to fight. And if he does, then it's his right to fight.

"It doesn't mean it's right. It doesn't mean it's smart. And it doesn't mean we have to watch."

HORNS OF A DILEMMA

BRISBANE Olympic boxer Jeff Horn may have gone too hard too early according to the manager of his next opponent Rivan Cesaire.

With less than four completed rounds of professional boxing to his credit, Horn, a 25-year-old school teacher, fights Cesaire at the Southport RSL on August 8 on a Fox Sports card.

Cesaire, a Commonwealth Games rep for Cameroon in 2006, has fought 75 rounds.

Horn has had three pro fights and Cesaire 14.

Horn won two fights at the London Olympics but has never gone beyond two rounds as a pro. Cesaire went 10 rounds outpointing hotshot Tim Hunt in 2011.

"If I was Jeff Horn’s manager I wouldn’t have taken this fight," said Cesaire’s manager Matt Clark.

"Jeff is a good fighter but this is going to be a huge step up for him.

"Rivan has already beaten some of Australia’s best in Tim Hunt, Todd Kidd ( a 2008 Olympian), Jason Kanofski, Ben Costello and Steven Maxwell.

"He’s very confident about beating Jeff Horn as well."

GEALE PRAISE FOR McCULLOCH

DANIEL GEALE has a huge wrap on sparring partner Ben McCulloch, the undefeated vegan with a huge right hand.

He says McCulloch has a similar style to Darren Barker, the Englishman Geale fights in Atlantic City on August 17 as he defends his IBF middleweight title.

And Geale rates McCulloch among the hardest punchers he’s fought or sparred with – alongside world champs Sakio Bika, Danny Green and Gennady Golovkin.

MAYWEATHER-ALVAREZ PURE GOLD

THE Floyd Mayweather v Canelo Alvarez world junior-middleweight title fight in Las Vegas on September 14 promises to be one of the great nights of boxing for many years.

Especially with the inclusion of the junior welterweight battle between Lucas Matthysse and titleholder Danny Garcia on the undercard.

Matthysse may be the hardest punching fighter in the world and "Swift" Garcia one of the finest boxers.

Promoter Richard Schaefer expects ticket sales inside the MGM Grand to top $19.5 million and there are 32,000 closed-circuit seats proposed nearby.

The fight is expected to sell 2 million pay per views at an average of $40 a hit.

No wonder Mayweather is the world’s highest paid athlete.

JUNIOR’S NEXT TEST

SYDNEY’S tough and talented Junior Talipeau – a star on Fox's The Contender series, returns to the ring at the Olympic Park Sports Centre in Homebush on August 30.

He faces Argentine veteran Walter Javier Crucce.

Talipeau has wins over Nader Hamdan and Shannan Taylor.

MURPHY EYES HAYE-FURY

BRISBANE-BASED Irishman Paddy Murphy is confident of getting a start on the undercard of the heavyweight Battle of Britain between David Haye and Tyson Fury on September 28.

The bout is set for the MEN Arena in Manchester where local hero Ricky Hatton toppled Kostya Tszyu in 2005.


TUNSTALL FIRES UP

A HUGE accolade from amateur boxing's world governing body hasn’t brightened the mood of Arthur Tunstall, who ran amateur boxing in Australia for half a century.

At 91, Arthur is still crooked on his rivals who forced him out of the top place in Australian amateur boxing.

"I’ll square up with them eventually," he told me. "If it’s the last thing I do."

Tunstall this week received the AIBA Order of Merit award from president Dr Ching-Kuo Wu at this month's executive committee meeting in Jeju, South Korea.

The award recognises his career as a sports administrator going back to 1950.

"I'm only the second person in the history of the international body that's been presented with (an Order of Merit), (and) the other one was the president,'' Tunstall told AAP.

"I was really surprised to get it.''

Earlier this year, Arthur, farewelled Peggy, his wife of 67 years.

SUPER HOOPER v BERRIDGE

THEY were the best of pals as sparring partners in Auckland recently but don’t be surprised if Brisbane’s London Olympian Damien "Super" Hooper soon clashes with Kiwi hard head Rob Berridge in a Trans-Tasman title fight.

Hooper has quickly run out of opponents in Australia with one largely unknown contender wanting $10,000 to fight him over six rounds.

Berridge has made a big impression on Fox shows in Australia, stopping Serge Yannick and Trent Broadhurst.

Hooper faces Samoan Togasilimai Letoa on the August 8 Southport card on Fox.

Letoa only has a 50/50 record but he knocked out world-rated Melbourne fighter Manny Vlamis last year.

CAPARELLO WORLD CLASS

BLAKE Caparello was brilliant on Fox last week repelling the challenge of classy Kiwi light-heavyweight Daniel MacKinnon, who once decked world champ Daniel Geale early in his career.

Caparello, now unbeaten in 18 pro fights, is awkward, cagey and clever.

The lanky southpaw would not look out of place fighting the likes of Adonis Stevenson or Nathan Cleverly in a world title bout. Might even spring an upset.

Caparello-MacKinnon was on the Lucas Browne-Travis Walker card in Melbourne on July 25.

Barry Michael and his team put on a great night of boxing in Melbourne with new Australian super-middleweight champ Jake Carr announcing he is a real force for the future in defeating Serge Yannick.

Brothers Qamil and Ibrahim Balla remained unbeaten and are genuinely hot prospects.

ROBERTSON TACKLES QUADE

IF Quade Cooper is looking for a tough foe for his second pro fight in the rugby off-season, cruiserweight Josh Robertson is his man.

Trained by Steve Deller at Brisbane’s Fortitude Gym, the 193cm Robertson is unbeaten in five fights and licking his lips at the prospect of swapping punches with the Wallabies flyer.

"We would love to fight Quade," Deller told me. "Quade looks very good for a novice but Josh would have too much of everything for him."

Cooper scored a first-round KO over Barry Dunnett in his boxing debut in February, the night Sonny Bill Williams controversially outpointed South Africa’s Frans Botha.

Quade’s trainer, Shannon "Shaggy" King defends his Australian junior-middleweight title on August 29 against Caloundra’s Craig Hill Jr at Eaton’s Hill in Brisbane’s north.

Robertson has his sixth pro fight on Saturday night at the Fortitude Gym against Ivan Kolar.

Australian Olympian Todd Kidd and former Irish international Dennis Hogan will appear on the same card.

VALENTINE’S DAY FOR TOOMEY

FORMER amateur star Paul Nasari is putting together a top card at Sydney’s Croatian Club in Punchbowl on August 9.

In the main event Dubbo’s Robert Toomey faces Valentine Borg for the Australian lightweight title.

Geale wants rematch with Barker to regain title lost in America
 
Date September 8, 2013
 

Daniel Geale's management is trying to secure a rematch with Englishman Darren Barker to give him a chance to regain the International Boxing Federation world middleweight crown he lost in his American debut last month.
 
Geale also confirmed his management had appealed the decision to award Barker the bout by split decision, but the former champion admitted it was unlikely much would come from it. ''The appeal normally doesn't have much of an impact,'' he said. ''All you can do is hope something good comes from it. We'd be happy if [the IBF] enforce the rematch.''
 
Geale, who has held the IBF, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Organisation's middleweight titles, said he was confident he would square the ledger should he and Barker fight again.
 
''Barker is a good opponent but I know if I fought him again it would be much easier,'' he said. ''I watched the fight for the first time on Thursday and it was probably disappointing … that I didn't back myself 100 per cent [after he was knocked down with a liver punch].


''I knew I'd hurt but I decided I'd worked hard that round, had exerted a lot of energy, and backed off.''
 
Geale insisted he did not back off from Barker after the Englishman beat the count because he, himself, was hurt. ''I didn't see any punches where he hurt me or caught me,'' he said. "A lot of them were missing, even though he was throwing a lot back they were missing. There wasn't too many flush punches landed [by Barker] and that's what frustrated me at the end of the fight. I know the fight was close but I felt I landed the better punches."
 
Geale wants to fight again in December, irrespective of whether he wins the appeal. If Barker doesn't fight Geale, he's expected to face German Felix Sturm.

Moving forward in Boxing Australia, FOX Sports will be showing the next fight night this Thursday at 7pm EST...

Australia Light Heavyweight champ Blake Caparello 17.0.1 takes on US man Allen Green 32.4.0 for the vacant IBO Light Heavyweight title @ The Melbourne Pavillion. Caparello trained in Montreal sparring former world champion Jean Pascal, WBA ranked Eleider Alvarez and Artur Beterbiev on a two week fight prep, on his return home he has been training with local boxers Damien Hooper, David Aloua, Srege Yannick and more. He might just edge it in if he boxes a smart strong fight and takes it to Green who has plenty world level experience up his sleeve, boxing the likes of Andre Ward, Glen Johnson and Mikkel Kessler suffering a loss in all 3 fights. His fight against Kessler was a beauty the KO was a ripper :)

Heres a cooment worth a read by a James Read...
They were continually given time to pay the contractual obligation. Shane wasn't even going to leave USA but Jeff Fenech wired him the initial 300k so he landed here, he gave Mundines joke of a team time to pay the rest and they continually stalled. They held an emergency meeting Monday at Star Hotel, Mundines team said money would be there by 5pm. It wasnt, Golden Boy then informed Shane to leave the country and not to fight.
He isnt fighting for free? N minimal contractual agreements werent met, regardless of numerous emergency meetings. If Jeff Fenech can pay up to 800k to make the fight happen, surely Mundine or his inept team could have paid him?... Its 100% Mundines fault. He continually turns the sport into a joke with his antics. Like turning down GGG and Austin trout for a fight because they are "Nobodies" then fighting the nobody Bronco McKart instead lol he is a farce...

Gary Shaw Voices Support For Australian Boxing Commission
Press Release October 25, 2013 0

Daniel-Geale-With-Gary-ShawBoxing promoter Gary Shaw who represents Australian fighters Daniel Geale and top contender Joel Brunker to name a few, is an avid supporter of promoting fights internationally, especially in Australia.

After a fight between Australian Anthony Mundine and American Shane Mosley was recently cancelled due to some controversy, Shaw had this to say about his dealings with the Australian boxing commission.

“Daniel Geale and Joel Brunker are two great fighters that I’m proud to say are part of our stable here at GSP. In all my dealings with the Australian boxing commission, I found them to be very honest and upright in every aspect of business.”

“I know Shane Mosley had some harsh words toward the Australian boxing scene and commission and he’s entitled to his opinion, but I’ve always had a great deal of respect for everyone I’ve dealt with in Australia, including Bill Treacy, Garrie Francisco Melissa Green  ;D to name a few.”

Shaw went on to say, “Shane Mosley is a future Hall of Famer and I admire and respect him for all his accomplishments and dedication to our sport. I don’t know if Shane was dealing with the Australian commission directly or if it was the promoter that he had a problem with, but every time I did business in Australia, everyone got paid.”

“I’m proud to say I’ll continue doing business in Australia and I find their commission to be straightforward, honest and truthful.”

Daniel Geale calls on Anthony Mundine to retire

Anthony Mundine has blasted ring rivals Danny Green and Daniel Geale following calls by Geale for the controversial former NRL star to retire.

After the embarrassing cancellation of Mundine’s fight with three-time world champion Shane Mosley last week, speculation has grown over the future of the 38-year-old.

Geale said the controversy Mundine has brought with him throughout his boxing career (44-5) has been detrimental to the sport in Australia.

"A lot of people do argue he’s done a lot for the sport, he’s kept it in the media but at what cost?" Geale told News Ltd.

"I look at it like there definitely has been a lot of negatives.

"When he’s been involved, and not only him but others around the world who have done the wrong thing, it makes it hard for everyone else."

But Mundine hit straight back on Facebook, also taking a shot at his aim to Green, telling the Perth star he would take him on in a rematch for $6 million and at 77.76kg. Green hasn't made that weight since he lost to Mundine on points in May 2006 and immediately moved up to light-heavyweight.

"Daniel geale's comments make me laugh here's A guy that would be fighting in rsl clubs if it wasn't for me! Just like Danny green! Wait a minute? They were haha," Mundine wrote.

"I am boxing in oz & god willing ima get the fights me & my fans want to prove I'm one of the best ever! Love it or hate it I'm the best sports entertainer Australia's ever had...that ain't arrogance that's fact...if I wasn't so focused on 154p I'd kick his ass again!

"So Geale & green Stop using my name to get attention...oh & greeny give me 6mill & meet me at 171pounds & I'll finish ya!"

Geale and Mundine are anything but friends in the sport they have both championed for so long. They have each won and lost a bout against one other.

Before The Man hit the canvas in the duo’s last meeting, his mouth got him in trouble in the lead-up. After questioning Geale’s Indigenous heritage and insulting his wife and family, the public outcry in opposition to Mundine grew.

Trash talk has been a signature part of Mundine’s strategy before fights, but before the Mosley bout, he was uncharacteristically quiet in an attempt to win over the Australian public.

The dramatic sideshow that Mundine has brought with him in the sport, most recently seen in the failed Mosley fight, has hurt opportunities for up and coming boxers, Geale says.

"There are a lot of really good fighters out there working their butt off doing the right thing," he said.

"There are a new crop of Olympians who have turned pro coming through now and they are going to find it extremely difficult because no one will want to go near boxing for that reason.

"They are too scared that something bad will happen so they won’t sponsor it and get behind it."

Geale lost the IBF middleweight world title in a split points decision against Darren Barker earlier this year.

He will have a chance to regain the title when he takes on the winner of the Barker vs Felix Sturm bout at the end of the year.

Geale voiced his frustration at the loss of that belt to Barker. Watching replays Geale believes he was hard done by.

"I had a copy of the scorecards in front of me while I was watching," he said.

"It is just a frustrating sport at times."
Before boarding his plane back to the US Shane Mosley announced he had no intention of returning to Australia to fight Anthony Mundine and criticised the country's boxing scene as being "behind the times" and "almost like the mafia days".

Danny Green's potential rematch with Anthony Mundine may be no nearer but the Perth favourite was back in the ring this week.

The former three-weight champion sparred rookie light-heavyweight Jeremy van Diemen, one of the attractions on next Friday night's Thunderdome IV card at Metro City.

"I'm always keeping myself fit and it was good fun," said Green, who hasn't fought since last November.

"He (van Diemen) is a good, honest fighter who doesn't take a backward step. At the moment he's just trying to get as much experience as possible and I was trying to show him a few techniques."

Last time out van Diemen, who boxes from Fox's Den, was involved in an eight-round war with Green's namesake, Andrew Green, who is also on the Dragon Fire-promoted show headlined by exciting light-welterweight Brandon Ogilvie.

In total there are 12 bouts and Andrew Green's trainer Dave Hassan, who has six fighters in action, says the strength of depth in WA has never been better.

"If there was national draft then a good quarter, even half, would come from WA," he said.

"Look around the State, with the likes of Nathaniel May, John Squillace, Luke Sharp, Sam Hogan, Brandon Ogilvie and (amateur) Jayden Hansen. We've never had that amount of talent before.

"We've had Danny Green, and he was an absolute champion in his own right, but no time in history have we had the numbers."

Hassan is backed by Brisbane trainer Gareth Williams, who goes further by saying Australia as a whole has never had it so good.

"Things are going great over in WA, indeed Australia is the strongest it's ever been, with this crop of kids that have come through the amateur system and turned pro," said Williams, who insisted the recent Mundine-Shane Mosley farce should not overshadow what's happening further down the food chain.

"As far as talent and what we have, we have got some real, real superstars."

Williams named West Aussies Ogilvie (Fox's) and May (Denning's) as his hot prospects, along with two of his own fighters, Olympians Damien Hooper and Cameron Hammond, and Jeff Horn and Val Borg.

Hassan said Shane Carroll is another high on potential, with the 18-year-old former Junior World Championship quarter-finalist making his professional debut next Friday.

"I've had him sparring in Harry's Gym in Balcatta this week and (trainer) Craig Christian came over and said, 'Who the hell is that boy? He's a ripper'.

"All the other boys in our gym have gone pro and basically he was starting to lose a bit of interest and feeling left out.

"Rather than lose him, I had a little talk to him and asked him what he wanted to do, and he said he wanted to go pro. He said he feels ready for it.

"Someone said to me, 'Where do you see him in two years?' and when I really thought about it I didn't see him hanging on and going to the Olympics. I didn't see him keeping the motivation for it. If history is a sign then he wouldn't have carried on much after 18. This way he stays involved in the sport."

Tunisian-born two-time world title challenger Naoufel Ben Rabeh is the stand-out name on the Thunderdome show. But it's the local talent that will draw the anticipated 1200 sell-out crowd, and despite none of them having had more than 11 outings, it's a chance to build a following and gain greater exposure.

"There are six Foxtel dates set for next year, and that will help the fighters become mainstream names," Hassan said.

Over in Brisbane, Ogilvie's big mate Hooper will have his fifth fight next Saturday night. The colourful light-heavy brings something extra to the party, even if it's not to everyone's taste.

"You've got to remember this game is an entertainment, it's not just boxing. You've got to have a bit of charisma," Williams said.

"Damien Hooper is like Dennis Rodman, who used to play for the Chicago Bulls. That's who Damien is, that's why he's got worldwide appeal. I don't know another boxer who makes a Facebook page 12 hours later he's got 7500 likes on his page. Or 4000 people like a photo. What other boxer in the world gets that?

"He's got that something else. And he's a 'd***head', he's a goose. When I say he's a d***head, I don't mean a real d***head. I mean he puts it all out there. I'm trying to pull him in but that's him, he is what he is. He doesn't care, 'I'm me, and if they don't like it they don't like it'."

But Williams acknowledged that while fighters like Hooper and Hammond are lucky enough to be backed by world-renowned Ricky Hatton, others are not.

"Promoters have to promote," Williams said. "They've got to do their job. They can't just give the kids 50 tickets and say, 'Sell your way through'. They've got to pay the kids, or we risk losing them. You wouldn't bring Lady Gaga over here and tell her to sell her own tickets, would you.

"It's a hard game, you get punched in the head. And it's not just the night, it's the 10-week training camp in the lead-up to that. You're mad if you do boxing, really.

"But these kids are so passionate about it, they want to get there and they want to succeed. And while I'll have to wait four years to be proven right, I'm willing to wait."

- WA heavyweight Lucas Browne is an unwitting victim of the rescheduled Anthony Mundine-Shane Mosley fight on November 27
Browne was set to fight on the undercard of the Martin Murray-Garth Wood show in Sydney on December 11 but the card has been pulled, with promoters unsure Sydney could support two shows in two weeks.

An Unforgettable Australian World Heavyweight Journey...

From the first time I witnessed Alex Leapai deliver a crushing assault on the top Australian heavyweight in Brisbane Nov 2007 to now there is a solid determination to conquer a mission gifted to him many of the world boxing heavyweights want to achieve. On April 26 in Oberhausen, Germany Alex will walk in the light of Australian boxing history, a proud Samoan representing Australia in our first attempt in 106 years to bring home the undisputed world heavyweight title. Known for his heavy fisted clubbing right hand Alex has knocked out many opponents along the way Michael Kirby, Col Wilson, Big Bob Mirovic, international contenders Travis Walker and Peter Okello proving he has the strength and power to damage whoever is put in front of him. When asked how he feels about the biggest fight of his professional boxing career he replies with a passive “To be honest I look at it as if it's another fight, I don't want to fight the fight now and I don't want to think of the fight, come the fight I will put my head down on the night I am fighting for the world title, I feel better that way”

Another fight it is, a well prepared fight that's been in the making for a few years, Noel and Alex spoke of fighting Klitschko in an interview with KMA Boxing Australia on March 2011 after a training session for the Okello fight in Japan a world title fight Alex won by a round 3 KO. Australia's number one heavyweight is focused and more determined to fulfill his dream of becoming Australia's first undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, ready to go to war against a man who has 6 inches height and reach to his advantage and a decade of elite world boxing experience and knowledge. Alex has world class boxing experience and power stepping up over the years under the guidance of Noel Thornberry winning the mandatory against Boystov Nov last year in a ten round points decision, honouring him the opportunity to fight WBO IBF WBA IBO champion Wladimir Klitschko representing Australia and homeland Samoa.

Reputable trainers and sparring partners have commended Alex on his power and dedication to the sport, he has developed power in both fists putting together punishing shots to the body, slicing in a lethal right uppercut when the timing is right with that all familiar clubbing right overhand. Like Alex says “Klitschko is in for a shock when he feels the power behind my shots, he has never fought anyone like me I don't care what he's got, I know he's got a good right hand but he's fighting one of the hardest punchers in the game”. I caught up with Alex and his team at the Nerang PCYC gym for a sparring session against heavyweight contender Romanian Razvan Cojanu a towering boxer taller than Klitschko with a powerful right hand landing some punishing shots to Alex's body and head, he shakes them off moving forward returning every punch with short sharp combo's. I am told this is mild from the previous sparring, they push Razvan for 6 rounds Alex boxing off the ropes taking in and working on Klitschko's style of fighting. After the session Razvan comments what a hard coconut Alex has and complements his boxing smarts in the days session, they have a jibe at each other respectfully appreciative of the time they have just spent sweating it out in the ring.

Before packing up and leaving the gym to take his dad Faataui to the doctors he stops for a couple of group photo's for the people who have attended the days session and chills with me for a brief chat answering some questions for KMA...
You have been sparring Razvan with no head gear, is this a sign you are ready for Klitschko?
“ I never wear head gear when sparring, I am ready for Klitschko. Razvan is one of the best heavyweights out there he is the unknown, he will be the next world champion. We do what we've got to do in the ring then after it's finished we have a joke. I am thankful for the sparring he is like a brother to me we have a good bond”

Your weight of 110kg was an opinion of many against your stamina in the ten round win over Boystov, are you fighting comfortable at this weight and is this the weight you will be boxing at come April 26?
“ I feel stronger at 110kg I don't want to lose weight I want to feel comfortable in the weight I am, I am stronger and better”

I was at the fight between you and Kevin Johnson April 2012 he is a boxer that works off his jab, has the same reach as Klitschko and similar height. You were able to deliver a vicious assault of heavy punches in round two that nearly won you the fight, I'm guessing you learned a lot from the fight and is a great benefit to you going into the fight against Klitschko?
“ It is, it proved like you said I was one punch away from stopping Kevin Johnson but it just proved that I wasn't ready for a world title yet and I feel ready now”
So it was a good thing in the end?
“It made me strong in the mind and more determined to come world champion,It was testing me and there was a few things to fix not to forget I broke my hand in the second round it's all fixed just goes to prove I wasn't ready for a world title back then I'm ready now. We all get knocked down but it's how you get up, I got up and just kept going now here we are fighting for the undisputed world champion heavyweight title. I want to be a role model for kids and my kids, I have had a pretty bad past I want to make things right”

Your dad Faataui has forgiven you for the six months you spent in jail in 2005 he has shown you great discipline now you're ready to fight a royal world heavyweight title your dad has passed on a powerful inner strength?
“Yeah I have learned a lot from my past, I'm thankful for my dad, my parents I guess I learned from my mistakes. If I had of listened to my mum and dad back then I wouldn't have had to go through all that stuff, God has given me a mission. I've done time, drugs, alcohol and got banned from football now I've been given a gift with the blessing from my dad, I just want to prove to my mum and dad, make them happy put a smile on their face. It's the last chapter, everybody will see I will get the result and call mum and dad up to the ring”

In previous interviews you have spoken of Klitschko's glass jaw is the aim of your fight considering your range of solid punches to land one solid punch or will you be aiming to do some damage to the body?
“Whatever I've got to do on the night, it might be one punch I've just got to do what I've got to do. I don't care what he's got I know he's got a good right hand I wont let out the secret but there's a few things I've been working on with Noel. Klitschko is definitely in for a shock, I'll be very determined in this fight”

You said the fight is going to be war?
“Yeah it's going to be war. Klitschko's going to have to go to war, if I go in there and try to box him he's going to box me all night. I'm one of them fighters that are in your face that's what I got to do I got to go to war”

When you got in trouble fighting the bouncers in 2005, there was an inner anger inner mongrel in you, do you think in the ring that inner mongrel is going to have to come out in this war to win the fight?
“ I told you I'm taking my parents there that's when I bring the beast out in me and I'll bring it, we are going to win”

That's what I wanted to hear, that's why I went to the sparring session. I believe Alex is going to do everything in his power to beat the man that no-one else can. He has been blessed with a great boxing team and family who are all in Essen Germany with him on this unforgettable journey of becoming the world heavyweight undisputed champion.

You,gotta admire Leapai for his guts  but he was clearly outclassed, I reckon Klit$chko could have finished it whenever he wanted. Best of luck to Alex though, and I reckon he will have learnt a lot and will be the better fighter for it.

Daniel Geale v Gennady Golovkin July 26 Madison Square, New York.
WBA & IBO Middleweight Titles

Daniel Geale has taken it up a notch to Madison Square NY fighting WBA, IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, undefeated in 29 fights Golovkin's a reputable boxer boasting a 26KO record. Former IBF and WBA middleweight champion Daniel Geale is in for a night of pure world class boxing, Golovkin is renowned for his knock out approach, powerful punches and a force of skill beating all 29 challengers defending the WBA, IBO titles seven times along the way.

Geale has similar victories winning the prestige IBF title from German Sebastian Sylvester in 2011  successfully defending it the following year against WBA champion Felix Sturm both fights taking place in Germany a tough win via points. He is Australia's current number one champion ready to win the WBA belt from Golovkin, he is going in with some odds stacked against him 'not the first time won't be the last but believe me Geale has what it takes to keep the champ under the pump and on his toes. Team Geale have been in NY for two weeks preparing and training for an uproar finally getting the opportunity to step into the ring with the man The Ring named fighter of the year a boxer Geale has wanted to fight for over a year, putting rumours to rest and chasing one of the top boxing middleweights of the division.

Come this Sunday Geale has something to prove, he needs to prove he has the ability to out skill a powerful KO boxer that no-one has done and many of the boxing industry already see as the winner. It is the fight Geale has been waiting for, a perfect match up to test his strength and skills going in the underdog can only make you stronger he is Australia's number one champion fighting on the world stage against the best of the best 'hat's off to you Gealy', never to back down, made of the hard stuff sure to stand his ground this fight has the sting to deliver a fortuitous night of boxing with the potential to be fight of the year.

I caught up with Noel Thornberry and Alex Leapai for a chat about the Klitschko fight in Germany and his up coming fight against Malik Scott on Oct 24 at Brisbane Entertainment Centre...

NOEL..

How is Alex after the fight with Klitschko, strong and ready to go again?
“With a loss comes a little bit of self doubt and soul searching but I think he's fine he's recovered from it really well I believe he is going to be ok he's got a hard fight the one thing he hasn't done is sherk the issue he is fighting a world class opponent no use trying to come back and fool everybody, the public and yourself there's no use fighting someone he can beat it's unmotivating, he needs another challenge. Different people different individuals would want a fight to come back to get there confidence back he didn't want that he wanted something that was going to motivate him, worry him and make him work his arse off and I respect that I believe that to”

If Alex gets back in a position to fight Klitschko again do you think he could win second time round?
“The fight against Malik will send his confidence through the roof, confirm what he already knew that he belongs at the top level. Everyone was talking up Boystov against Klitschko and he beat Boystov reasonably comfortable in hindsight. To beat Klitschko you've got to knock him out, you got to throw punches”

Before the fight in Germany when I interviewed Alex he said he was looking at the fight as just another fight, was that the right way to train?
“For this one especially, this is just another fight it's just as important as the Klitschko fight when he fought Klitschko I didn't want the event to get a hold of him, when on a big stage it's easy for the event to get a hold of you”

Did that happen?
“Yeah it did, absolutely for me to deny it is avoiding the truth Al has to acknowledge that himself it happened it's experience it can't be taught it can't be bought you've got to learn and the only way to learn is to be the subject and not many people get the opportunity and he's had it. When he gets another chance he's got to get behind it it's huge, the biggest value is up here to be able to control yourself everybody's got to be able to overcome their own demons before they can beat anybody else it's very psychological he's got to be able to sit down and relax when the bell rings he's got to fight his fight not worry about what Malik is doing get out there and force himself in to the fight impose himself on this guy he can't stand off he can't be in awe of this guy he's got to get out there and be Alex Leapai”

Did you feel the pressure of the loss being Alex's trainer and manager?
“ I have been to six world title fights including three with my younger brother so it doesn't get any more personal than that Calzaghe, Ottke and Carr and all them guys I was calm because of all that experience I have had Al was my seventh world title so that helped me out a lot”

Do you have a tight contract with Malik, some say he took a dive in his last fight against Deontay Wilder?
“No I don't believe he took a dive and I don't think he will take a dive funny things happen when the bell rings I believe he got hit high in the temple and just didn't recover”

What is your favoured punch of Alex's?
“Overhand right is his great power he's got to learn how to throw it with a bit more control, accuracy and precision, if he was super accurate he beats anybody. It doesn't mean he has to be the best boxer, he is a classic boxer if he can learn to really apply himself as far as making himself really active and get his timing and distance right he can go anywhere”

as Joe Goodall be good a good sparring partner to help Alex with that?
“Yes, Joe has a solid style, he's such a good mover”

Is Alex catching him?
“ He wasn't at the start but he is know” Joe has come out of some huge training camps winning silver at the Commonwealth Game he has been a great sparring partner for Alex”

Who has Alex been sparring in Sydney?
“Kali Meehan, Soloman Haumono, Bowie Topou” Kali has a son who is good boxer 6ft6” tall weighs 120kg he can fight, he plays for the Roosters under 20”

Is he going to take up boxing?
"Yes"
 
Is Paul Gallen fighting on the card?
“He's not fighting on October 24, he wants to step up and have a go”

Is it true that Team Leapai got 1.2 million from the Klitschko fight?
“No, he got more”

Do you donate anything back to the boxing community?
“ Yes, we are putting $280,000 into our next promotion bringing Malik Scott over from the US, charities and fundraisers"

ALEX..

You reached your goal of fighting the world No1 heavyweight champion, where to from here? What do you see as your mission now?
“ That is still my mission, everyone gets a second chance there's a lot of things I could've done better but I let Klitschko do his thing and I didn't focus on what I do best. It's just one of those things got to get back in the gym keep working harder and try a fix those things”

Did you suffer any injuries?
“No, it's just that Klitschko hit me in the right places, very accurate with his punches like I said I let him do his thing we just got to get back up there. The difference between me and Klitschko I have six kids, I've got to work this man doesn't work, he doesn't kids the stress he just focuses on boxing for him it's all boxing that's probably why he's the champion”

It was a big world stage in Germany
“Yeah there was a bit of nerves fighting on the big stage, the whole world was watching with high expectations but I will bounce back I'm coming for those other heavyweights to get back to the top”

In saying that you were offered a lot of money for the fight has it set up your family?
“Yes it has, I bought a house for my wife, my children and built a house for mum and dad back in Samoa, it was always my dads dream and bought my wife an American Hummer”

Did you take your KMA towel to the Klitschko fight?
“Yes we did”

What about Lucas Browne, would you fight him?
“I'll fight anybody, if he wants the fight I'll fight him but at the moment we are going down different paths. I respect what he's doing, it's good that there is two Australians going out there trying to take on the world that's our aim to bring it home for one of us to bring it home to be proud we are a proud country but if down the track we got to bring it on do the show, I said I will fight anybody doesn't matter who it is”

Is Chris Arreloa on your list?
“ He is on the list and it's a good fight two guys coming out to box hard”

Who is your favourite up and coming boxer?
“ Joe Goodall, he's a talent but he's one of them talents you guide him right he's going to go along way. He's a good kid, a humble kid he hasn't matured yet but the way he's going he's going really good”

He has someone good guiding him?
“ Glenn Rushton he is a good man, he is a man that has a lot of money and time to spend with kids and boxing I've always got time for people like that, he could put his money into something else but he puts it in boxing to help out the kids. He's also got Jeff Horn and a couple of other boxers”

Does Glenn work out of his gym at home?
“ Just out of the gym at his mansion, he's a really nice bloke helping kids and boxing”

What would you like other than professional boxing?
“I would love to open a gym for island people to help them lose weight, teach them about eating healthy improving their health and well being”


Always a great pleasure catching up with Noel and Alex, two gentleman that have always welcomed KMA on many occasions over the years.

Alex Leapai achieved his goal of fighting worlds No1 heavyweight going five rounds with ten time world champ Wladimir Klitschko not giving up on his chance to be a world heavyweight title holder he challenged Malik Scott sparring partner of his past victors. The fight was in Leapai’s backyard with friends, family and fans watching on, a brave fight going the distance awarding Scott a unanimous decision win. Where to from here for team Leapai...

He has suffered three losses to world worthy heavyweights who all work off their jab and point hunting offenders, now is the time to fight a fight of his liking and similar ilk. Time to get his head out of the clouds his feet on the ground and roar like the lion we frequently hear about starting with a cataract operation to fix his cloudy eyes a condition that troubled him in his fight with Malik. Let’s face it he has a head on him like a rock and no fairy point winning jabs are going to knock him out there is definitely a place for a rock solid brawler in the heavyweight division. Noel is the longest standing promoter in Australia taking Ricky, Maselino and Alex to world title fights Thornberry Promotions are rock solid with a wealth of knowledge and contacts a leader in boxing Australia.

Grange Old School Boxing 3.12.14

Two of our top middleweights Daniel Geale 30.3.0 and Jarrod Fletcher 18.2.0 are ready to end the year on a win tomorrow night at the Hordern Pavilion, Sydney. Both boxers lost their last fight by TKO in the early rounds taking on top ranked WBA middleweights Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs in New York, USA. Staying true to their colours willing to take on the best they took up the challenge testing strength and skill against gifted boxers with a genre proved hard to beat by many on the path to become world No1.

Back home they enter the ring as number one in their eyes, first time as opponents other times sparring mates and team competitors for Australia Olympic and Commonwealth games. Mates on the outside fighters on the inside the fight is sure to be full of adrenalin pumped action, the superior boxer winning and ending the year on a high.

The undercard of new and entertaining heavyweights Paul Gallen and Anthony Watts are fighting their second fight for the year entering the ring ready to secure a spot in boxing Australia heavyweight division. Grange Promotions have matched 3 heavyweight fights for the night young Willis Meehan is following in his dads footsteps cracking his knuckles at boxing, his second professional fight for the year. Adding three more fights for the night against current Australian contenders of the heavier divisions Grange are finishing the year off with the best intentions for Boxing Australia providing another superior evening for some of our finest.

Agree the Watt and Gallen fight was unfortunate, what is your opinion of the NRL guys boxing professionally? I don't think a rematch will happen, such a bummer Watts did his shoulder would've been interesting to see how it panned out.

I was a bit miffed at paying $49.95 for the comfort of watching it at home, wasn't expecting that :/ It was a good night of domestic boxing thought Geale would have nailed Fletcher in round 9 when he was wobbly.

Enjoyed watching Carr v Quinlan and Flanagan v Quinn nice match ups .. baby Meehan beat Alofa round 1KO, Alofa returned to the ring after 6 years @ 43yrs of age.


Tonight

Blake Caparello 19.1.1 hits the ring at Melbourne Pavillion returning to boxing Australia after challenging world light heavyweight champ Sergey Kovalev, New Jersey USA in August suffering his first professional loss by Round 2 TKO ... going from strength to strength he is sure to nail Argentinian opponent Maximiliano Gomez 15.3.0

Benny Edwards v Hunter Sam - Canberra, Australia 27.02.15

Glory heavyweight champion Ben Edwards takes on Hunter Sam for the Australia heavyweight title at the Hellenic Club, Canberra. Edwards has stepped back in to the boxing ring focused on bringing the bang back in to the heavyweight division, head strong with a purpose to get the job done will make for a great fight between two talented boxers.
Hunter Sam is a respected boxer with eleven wins under his belt holding the Australian heavyweight title he looks set to make a great first defense of the title he won from David Levi by unanimous decision. Turning professional in 2008 with 12 more fights to his boxing career than Edwards will favour him on the night, a solid boxer taking up the challenge fighting Kali Meehan last year prepared to take on the hard fights to make it in the tough world of Boxing Australia.

Edwards has extensive knowledge and skill from kickboxing since turning professional in 2003, turning his attention to boxing in 2007 he took up the challenge against John Hopoate successfully winning by a round one knockout. Swapping between kickboxing and boxing has seen Edwards focus more on his kickboxing career only having five fights in Boxing Australia in eight years, four wins by round one knockout. His KO style is favoured by the fans, a welcomed exciting style he would love to test against other NRL players in the near future.

The fights tonight consist of three boxing events, six kickboxing and one Mixed Martial Arts a crowd pleasure for Canberra crew and people with an interest in a good night of boxing entertainment. May the best man win the glory of the Australian Heavyweight title.

Boxing Bar Cafe & Restaurant KMA visit 2007. 

By Melissa Green

During my visit to Melbourne, Victoria I stumbled across the Don Camillo Bar Cafe & Restaurant with lots of character. It is a sweet drive from Melbourne’s famous House of Stoush, Festival Hall at 215 Victoria Street, West Melbourne. You will find Sam Greco there most days who takes pride in welcoming his guest into a friendly and warm atmosphere.

Sam is a well known Australian sporting representative kicking off his journey into combative sports at the age of nineteen with an impressive career debuting in the K1 in 1994 fighting the best of the best, winning the world crowning super heavyweight kickboxing championships in 1995 at the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Centre.  Retiring at the grand age of 38 in 2005 with 147 fights in full contact kerate, kickboxing K1 and MMA following up on his acting career and training world fighting contenders.

Don Camillo café has been open since 1955 visited by AFL members, lawyers, boxers, political personalities and many more of Melbourne’s well known identities. The café walls are plentiful with boxing and AFL memorabilia a Melbourne cafe retreat to relax and enjoy  morning tea, midday lunch or dine in on Friday evening.

Commonwealth Heavyweight champion Lucas Browne signed to Hatton Promotions is waiting on confirmation to fight WBA Heavyweight title holder Ruslan Chagaev. The WBA has ordered Chagaev a mandatory fight for one of the top contenders enforcing the rules of  180 day defence of the vacant title he won from US based Fres Oquendo last year. Chagaev 33.02.01 aged 36 boxing professionally since 1997 is experienced on the world stage boxing heavyweight giant Nikolai Valuev in Germany 2007 coming out the victor of a twelve round point decision he then went on to box undisputed heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2009 retiring in round nine and top ranked heavyweight Alexander Povetkin losing on points in a majority decision 2011.

Browne is ready to take the next step in his boxing journey welcoming the challenge to fight the mandatory position of WBA world heavyweight title training hard with Jeff Fenech beefing up his quality of punches along with focusing on his balance and technique in prep for the biggest fight of his career. Since turning professional in 2009 after a courageous stint in MMA he’s tuned into the serious side of boxing Australia stepping up in fights over the last two years against US men James Toney, Travis Walker, Clarence Tillman and Chauncy Welliver collecting international belts along the way winning the British Commonwealth Heavyweight title in the UK April last year.

Browne is undefeated in twenty two fights nineteen knockouts all within round five, moving from WBA 15 to top four in a year has given Team Browne the grand opportunity for a mandatory challenge at a world heavyweight title. A great representative for Boxing Australia through hard work and determination his journey may just provide Australia with its first heavyweight world title in over 100 years and equally as deserving a first world title win for Hatton Promotions.

Blake Caparello v Affif Belghecham – Melbourne Pavillion, Victoria Australia 22.05.15

Light Heavyweight Blake Caparello 28 of Melbourne, Victoria turned to professional boxing in 2009 after a short impressive amateur start winning the light heavyweight state, national and Asia pacific titles within the first three years. Currently sitting on twenty two fights, one loss and a draw early in his career working his way to a shot at a world title in 2013 he took up the challenge to fight former world title challenger Allen Green of Oklahoma winning all twelve rounds by unanimous decision for the IBO Light Heavyweight title.

Lou DiBella from DiBella Entertainment impressed with Caparello’s performance signed up to promote him after the Green fight in the promise of a world title shot, three months later in Atlantic City, New Jersey DiBella secured a fight with world rated Light Heavyweight Elvir Muriqi 40.05.0 Caparello used his cagey style and skill to adapt to the fight on the night granting the southpaw an opportunity to test his skills against three time world champion Sergey Kovalev in New York for the WBO title on August 2014. It was a short fight between two A listers, Kovalev was knocked down in round one, proving too powerful in round two he knocked Caparello down twice before the ref waved it for a TKO win to Kovalev retaining his WBO Light Heavyweight title.

The fight was a welcomed challenge for team Caparello gaining vital experience in the game of world boxing taking it back home to Australia in a follow up fight against Argentinian Super Middleweight Maximilliano Gomez ending the year on a high. French man Affif Belghecham is next on Caparello’s list in Melbourne, Victoria Affif is a sharp southpaw that’s gone twelve rounds with Darren Barker the man that beat our very own former IBF World Middleweight champion Daniel Geale not to be taken lightly Caparello and his team are sure to tackle what is put before them come fight night May 22.

Jeff Horn v Richmond Djarbeng – New Zealand 13.6.15

Australia’s number one welterweight Jeff Horn 9.0.1. 7KO hits the ring with two Australasian titles under his belt chasing a third against former West African welterweight champion Richmond Djarbeng 19.2.1. 15KO promoted by Duco Boxing of New Zealand.
 
Undefeated in ten fights Horn puts his PABA and WBO Oriental welterweight titles on the line looking to seal the deal with another win over Djarbeng gaining the champions WBA Pan Pacific title at Arena Manawatu, New Zealand. Adding some sting to the welterweight division Horn’s a solid world contender armed with the tools to compete with the top ten, WBA ranked Ghanaian born Djarbeng sits at number eleven Horn at fifteen not bad for a young professional welterweight champion on the rise something that Djarbeng says he will put a stop to come Saturday night.

Confident of the win to take back home to Ghana this is Djarbengs first fight away from his homeland claiming that he will return to Ghana a victorious man proudly representing his people in the world of boxing, the amount of rounds fought between the two Djarbeng wins hands down 143 v 42 with nine years more experience in professional boxing.

I see Horn won on points. Reading about it, looks like he was doing good until the fight was stopped in the seventh because of a cut above an eye.
Joseph Parker had a first round knockout. Reckon he may have the goods to go further.

There is talk of Green taking another fight before Mundine next year.

Hatton Promotions has teamed up with Brian Amatruda and Tony Mundine for the WBC Silver super welterweight title fight between Anthony Mundine 47.6.0 and Charles Hatley 25.1.1 on Main Event FOX TV tonight.  Mundine is ranked WBC top four holding the WBC Silver title putting him in a good position to fight higher ranked Canelo or Cotto but to get the opportunity to fight the world’s best he first needs to get a win over hungry US Texan Charles Hatley.

Big Time Boxing Blake Caparello 21.1.1 steps in the ring for a second time at super middleweight after a successful debut against Frenchman Affif Belghecham at the Melbourne Pavilion in June. Young gun Luke Sharp 13.2.3 is prepped for the opportunity to fight International title holder and Australia number one super middleweight champion Caparello, bringing his best from the West Coast of Australia and chasing a win in his quest to fight his way to the top in Boxing Australia.

Caparello is no stranger to the world of boxing he’s a cagey southpaw willing to take risks stepping up to the challenge of IBF WBO WBA Light Heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev in New Jersey last year. He’s sparred in USA with WBC champion Adonis Steveson and other top ranked boxers gaining imperative experience along the way. Team Caparello made the choice to drop down in weight chasing more competitive fights opening doors for Caparello to put his experience and skills to the test hunting down another shot at world title.

Expect to see a battle of two Aussie Titan’s tomorrow night, one young and hungry the other an experienced boxing veteran starved from a ten year drought for retribution. Kane Watts is the man standing between Danny Green and Anthony Mundine’s highly anticipated rematch, ranked four in the cruiserweight division Watts has everything to gain with a win over Boxing Australia’s former triple world champion Danny Green.

Green has a solid challenge ahead of him if his last fight is anything to go by, after a year’s absence from the ring his fight against Argentinian Roberto Bolonti last year was bitter sweet for his team and fans, lacking power and dominance on the night Green boxed safe, a different level of boxing compared to his world title fights of the past. Green has stepped in to the ring with some of the best of his division, Antonio Tarver knocked Green off his winning streak in Sydney 2011 claiming the IBO cruiserweight title, challenging Poland’s WBC champion Krysztof Wlodarczyk four months after the loss on Green’s home turf of Perth took him into deeper waters over eleven rounds defiant he came...

Michael Katsidis v Josh King 11.03.17



World renown Lightweight boxer and former two time WBO Interim title holder Michael Katsidis returns to Boxing Australia on March 11 headlining TGW Smithy’s Promotion in Brisbane, Australia. Teamed up with long time trainer Brendan Smith has proved great success for Katsidis boxing career, always ready to take on the best earned them the grand opportunity of fighting Juan Manuel Marquez for the WBO and WBA Super Lightweight titles at the MGM Grand Las Vegas USA, November 2010.

Katsidis has been busted up, locked up and left broken hearted chasing world titles, one fight from eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, Katsidis was rocked by the sudden death of his brother Brisbane jockey Stathi Katsidis, one month before the biggest fight of his boxing career choosing to box on he dropped boxing icon Marquez in round three delivering the Mexican champion a shock knockdown. Not one to back down from a challenge Katsidis once again gave the fans a fight worth watching, trading heavy handed blows over nine rounds Marquez winning by a technical knockout retaining the WBO WBA titles and the right to a second bout against Manny Pacquiao in 2011.

Katsidis The Great’ 31.7.0 is a great representation of boxing in Australia, a tough pressure fighter he’s been in many bloodied world title battles, fighting his way through the lightweight division winning the Interim WBO World Lightweight title at the Wembley Arena London in Feb 2007 going on to defend the title in Nevada USA against Czar Amonsot. The fight critiqued for fight of the year, Katsidis winning a unanimous decision over twelve explosive rounds, two warriors testing their strength and skills in a jaw dropping battle with heavy fisted blows bringing the history of hard knocks back to boxing.

After a two year absence from the ring and speculation surrounding his health our title tooting world boomerang returns to Toowoomba, Queensland proudly representing TGW Smithy’s Promotions in a fight close to home honouring brother Brayd  ‘The Great White’ Smith and offering fellow state challenger Josh King 20.4.0 the opportunity to fight at top of the Australia Super Lightweight division. King returns after a fifteen month layoff, his last fight against Katsidis UK foe Ricky Burns in Nov 2015 suffering his second knockout loss in round eleven gaining risky boxing experience needed when chasing the world titles.

Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn, Brisbane Promotion 26.04.17



Manny Pacquiao is in Australia meeting the man Bob Arum from Top Rank Promotions chose for his next fight, no it’s not Amir Khan in Dubai, it’s undefeated Australian Welterweight Campion and World Boxing Organisation number two Jeff Horn in Queensland, Australia at Brisbane Suncorp Stadium July 2.

After months of negotiations Duco Events in conjunction with the Queensland government secured a fight with Philippines senator and eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao in one of the biggest stadiums Pacquiao has boxed at seating up to 55,000 people. Pacquiao has mentioned in his many interviews he wants the fans to be happy with the fight, styles make fights Horn being the perfect choice for Pacquiao at this stage of his boxing career.

Manny Pacquiao’s record reads like a bible, full of scripture and a journey taken by a holy man on a mission, an intimidating record of fifty-nine wins, eleven world titles in eight divisions, once a diamond in the rough fighting his way out of poverty today boxing royalty and elite world boxing entity. Promoted by Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, Muhammad Ali’s long-time promoter, a historian of 51 years in the business with a selective eye for fresh boxing prowess, something trainer and manager Glen Rushton has gauged since Horn walked in to his gym.

The name Jeff Horn is starting to turn heads in the world of boxing, how some may ask, through hard work, determination, guts and glory leaving no stone unturned in his preparation for the biggest fight of his career the WBO World Welterweight title against a man people give him little chance of beating. With fifteen professional wins on his record, the London Olympic athlete believes he has the skills to cause an upset against the experienced aggressive southpaw. 
 
Brisbane boxer Jeff Horn caught the attention of USA promoter Bob Arum Dec 2016 on the undercard of Joseph Parker and Andy Ruiz for the vacant WBO World Heavyweight title. Dean Lonergan of Duco Events, New Zealand set the platform and Horn delivered an astonishing round six knockout over two-time former welterweight champion Ali Funeka, a convincing win landing him the opportunity to fight world boxing legend Manny Pacquiao on home soil.

Shannon O'Connell v Marcela Acuna 17.06.17

Australia WBC Silver Super Bantamweight champion Shannon O'Connell lands in Argentina, fist ready, for the fight of a life time challenging Argentines number one and reigning Super Bantamweight champion Marcela Acuna at Caseros, Buerios Aires for the IBF World Super Bantamweight title on June 17. This is a fight not to be missed, International boxing queens Marcela Eliana Acuna and Shannon 'Shotgun' O'Connell two female boxers combative in their quest to fight the best, great ambassadors for women's boxing worldwide, professional athletes in one of the toughest sports fathered by the one and only, greatest of all time.

Argentine national boxing icon Marcela Acuna has a big following, veteran of the ring at forty years of age with an impressive record of forty-five wins, nineteen by knockout and current IBF Super Bantamweight champion. Confident with 20 years experience, dominating the division a well groomed fighter born to fight from a young age, Acuna is a black belt Tigress of Martial Arts putting her stamp on professional boxing in 1997 achievimg six world titles in two weight divisions, she's the pride of Argentina's boxing, proving age is only a number when it comes to a sport you are born to compete in. 

Australian Shannon O'Connell has a stamp of her own, signing to fight on foreign ground against a seasoned skilled opponent, a young gun boxer thats been tearing her way through the division hunting down world titles landing in Acunas backyard ready to rumble. O'Connell made the hard decision of missing out on fighting in one of Australia's biggest boxing events Battle of Brisbane WBO Welterweight title between Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn, estimated to be a crowd of 60,000, trading it in for her shot at the IBF super bantamweight title eyes firmly set on prying the prestigious title from the clutches of crowd favourite Marcela Eliana Acuna.

Shannon O'Connell is a great representation and inspiration fighting all that's been put before her, taking risks and making important decisions, twenty fights into her professional career with fifteen wins letting everyone know she is here and here to stay. Fighting the majority of her bouts away from home O'Connell stepped up in weight, two years after her professional debut in 2011 heading to South Korea for the WBA featherweight title. Unsuccessful and hungry it didn't take long for her to agree to the next opportunity to fight for the WBF featherweight title in South Africa, this time successful winning by knockout in the seventh round, both contests against undefeated opponents. Not one to shy away from the odds stacked up against her she accepted a fight with USA based fellow Australian champion and former WIBA world super featherweight champion Diana Prazak in 2014 suffering a techniacal knockout in round five.

"Shannon is one of the best fighters I've ever trained and probably one of the best fighters I ever will train. She's the complete package. She's got the mongrel, she's got the determination, she's got the toughness and she's got the skill to go with it to hit the top"

Words from the man by her side trainer Luke Meldon the man O'Connell trusts with her life inside the ring, a bond and trust essential when you have hit the top. Preparation for the fight has been disruptive with the passing of Shannon's grandfather two weeks before taking flight to Argentina, a fight that was originally penned for July 2 on the Pacquiao v Horn card but due to Acuna's reluctance to fight away from home and come Down Under, O'Connell is forced to fight the champion in the one sided fan based stadium, forever proud to represent her grass roots is sure to inspire the fire inside one of the most primed dedicated boxers of Australia.

Team O'Connell have a strong home base supported by Hosking Promotions, Fortitude Boxing and Duco Events a close team she calls family, a pure devoted boxer with superior resilience to be admired by all who know her work ethic and dedication to a sport she bleeds and lives for. Punching her way through battles in life and in the ring, never giving up led her to the shores of New Zealand winning a critical fight impressing Top Rank CEO and Manny Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum landing her in the position she's in today, guaranteed a crowd pleasing fight ready to give it her all and do what she takes great pride in.
