    Just curious. Anyone even slightly interested in this bout?

    Me, I'm very much looking forwards to seeing Green pummel the bollocks from Mundine's forehead.

    I've always thought boxing was a stupid sport, just like wrestling, hunting, marbles, and thumb wars. The fact that, as professional boxers, they have the ability to take another stupid person out of this world, however, seems to be an added advantage. Sadly, however, you don't see too much of the old knock-out-suicide anymore... [face_plain]

    I'd probably watch it out of curiosity, but I don't have foxtel.

    Well Green LOST by points.
    Noy because I'm biases, but I really, honestly, disagree with the judges scoring on this bout.
    Mundine spent 60% of his fight against the ropes and got hardly any punches in...but a lot of punches that LOOKED like he got in, IF you see them in reply.

    Can't wait for the re-match. I was actually suprised to see the sportmanship between the two fighters after the bout.

    Yeah - he died late yesterday afternoon! Crazy! It's a shame that something as unimportant as two neanderthals beating the crap out of each other can lead to someone's death.

    It's like getting into fisticuffs over a game of Monopoly

    Ender, my post was made many hours before I knew how bad the brawls were. I was simply thinking of the brawls that happened here in Fremantle. I hadn't even heard of the ones where so many people were badly hurt, let alone killed.
    I'd only heard/seen the ones involving druken yobos at the time of my post.

    Fixed. That's all that needs to be said to sum up why so many people condemn such uncivilised rubbish.

    Ahwell, we're in a country that has meatheads slugging each other out on the green instead of going for the football.
    But that's just part of AFL right?

    Boxing is not less civilised than Aussie Football at times.

    I'd figure after a 2 week ban for derogatory comments towards homosexuals you'd avoid using the word gay as a negative. o_O
