    Jones is not the fighter he used to be...

    Did you rectify the situation by licking it off the bar?

    Just a quick aside, has anyone noticed an increase in mainstream exposure of boxing over here in Australia?

    My conspiracy theorist has surfaced telling me all manner of possible reasons. One of which is there has been a need to soften up the general public in regards to fight sports and boxing is an already accepted sport, thus increase its exposure and the public becomes accustomed to seeing grown men bash each other, giving specifically the UFC an in as is evident in it coming to Australia next year (**** yeahhhhhh). A seemingly contradictory theory is that boxing is experiencing its death knell and is screaming loud in a place that hasn't had the mainstream exposure of MMA as other countries such as the US and UK.

    They are just theories. Conspiracy theories.

    dad says that when he was a pro fighter in the 70's boxing was huge in australia. probably the most popular sport after rugby and cricket. there were fights on TV a couple of times a week.

    Was lucky enough to be at the fight with two friends.......Undercard fights were okay, Will Tomlinson and Verquan Kimbrough probably the best with Will scoring a great knockout...

    Place erupted when Jones Jr came out, we all waited patiently for about 40 minutes for the main event as the last undercard finished at about 9:15...

    Green made us wait for almost a whole song of "Land Down Under", not that anyone really looked like they were complaining!

    Fight itself was crazy for lack of a better word, Jones hits the deck at around 1.20, and was stopped at 2.02 or there abouts.....Thought the roof was going to literaly collapse when Jones hit the deck, all 16,000 went BALLISTIC!

    Great job Danny....For the record, Jones Jr looked AMAZING, he is one in shape dude!

    I have to say Jones may still look good but he's far from the fighter he once was. (he should have retired years ago)

    Its good to see that boxing is enjoying a resurgence down under. Strangley, Boxing has really started to take off over here in the UK again too.

    With David Haye holding a heavyweight title and soon to be fighting both Klitchkos, Amir Kahn holding a light Welterweight title and being tipped by Roach to be the next P4P king coupled with the fact we have whole host of real quality young fighters coming through like Kell Brook, Kevin Mitchell, James De Gale ,Frankie Gavin etc.. the future of british boxing suddernly looks really bright.
