Testament to how many stupid people there are in the world.

Won't be watching.

Does it really matter?

The debate and build up so far have been entertaining and the upcoming trash talk will be a treat.
Add a punchers chance at fairytale ending even the Grimm brothers couldn't think up and it's enough for me to figure I might as well enjoy the ride and hope for the best.

I don't think he has any chance but to those who do, enjoy.

Well at least enjoy how annoyed diehard boxing fans are, it's hilarious.
The biggest match since Mayweather and Pacman decided they were so far past their prime that they might as well fight, will be between a 40yr old retired boxer and someone who has never fought under boxing rules... still, it's better than watching a Klitschko bore both fighters and fans into submission.

Speaking of Pacman, I really fear for Horns health.

He does get hit often and has a bit of a brawling style which I'm not sure will bode well against Pacman, but I haven't watched Pacman fight since Floyd and I don't think he's actually stopped an opponent in some time so maybe father times effects are taking hold.
Should still be an entertaining fight and with the added bonus (for me at least) of Tim "My father is a legend" Tszyu on the undercard.

Last I heard, Junior Tszyu wasn't on the undercard.

Horndog will probably get sparked out, but I wouldn't write him off completely. He genuinely does have a puncher's chance.

I don't think the other guy does.

Bugger, I'm sure he announced in the post interview of his last fight (Joseph Parker undercard) that he was on that card, will have to look up who else is scheduled but hadn't heard anything exciting previously.

It's being billed as the biggest day in Australian boxing history.

Looking at that line-up, it's hard to see where we're going to get a win from.

All our blokes will likely get scrambled like eggs.

Horndog, though a big outsider, looks the best chance of an upset.

All the other guys look hopelessly over-matched.
