    I reckon you'll need an Aussie Homeloan even to watch it from the bleachers.. Demand will be huge locally and some internationals will fly in to see it.

    Yeah its gonna be pricey to see live. PAC is one of my fave fighters. TBH I dont think it will go the distance but hopefully Jeff can pull a rabbit out and do it for Oz. If Fuenka can drop him, Pac will for sure.

    How much are we thinking a ticket in the bleachers will be?

    For such a high profile fight, in an outdoor venue, with say 40,000 capacity like the Gabba or Adelaide Oval.. I'd say cheap, like $100 in the bleachers. Halve that capacity and the cheapest get fairly pricey as the capacity is smaller and the view naturally closer.

    Watch it from the pub I say. I've seen a couple in arenas holding 10-20,000 or so and it tends to be hard to see what's going on.

    Green will run a different fight this time. Mundine spent most his time keeping away from Green last time till Green run out of puff.
    It wasn't much a fight, but a win is a win. Poor bastards that paid a truck load of money to be there.

    What time Perth time around would Mundine and green actually fight?

    If it says 4pm that means like 2 hours of undercard right ?

    Watching some of the old Mundine and Green fights free on Main Event today. I'm more interested in spotting some of the celebs in the crowd. Showed a few shots of Alex sitting next to Ed at the 2007 Mundine vs Soliman fight. She looked thrilled to be there! Don't know where Fev was?

    I expect the fight to be on around 10.30-11 AEST. Depends on how long it takes to clear this undercard

    Had $20 on mundine to win on points paying $4.50. Could say the legally smallest ring they had worked in Green's favour, but mundine wasn't busy enough and happy with the decision.

    Reckon a third fight will happen a some point. Money talks.

    Alvarez blaming Golovkin for not agreeing to a fight, citing Golovkin's refusal to accept a flat fee instead of a portion of PPV.

    Wondering if we'll ever see this fight.

    Honestly, pretty ridiculous from Canelo. This is going to be the biggest fight since Mayweather vs. Pacquiao and half the reason for that is GGG and his reputation. Just pay the guy and get on with it. Hopefully a load of people tune in to watch GGG vs. Jacobs and put the pressure on Alvarez's camp to be reasonable about the offer.

    Punch stats confirm Green threw more and landed more... though mundine was much more accurate.

    Quite a good, even looking fight for 5 rounds, but Wilder then connecting with a damaging short right hook, and that was all she wrote... Good stoppage by the ref.

    Didn't see the fight. Wilder has one of the best right hands in the business... other than that and the reach advantage he usually has over opponents... he is not a standout heavyweight.

    Apparently he will fight Joseph Parker next to unify their titles. That should be a good 50/50 fight. One I doubt will go the distance...

    Wilder will KO Parker I reckon and at 38 years old I wonder if Manny can put Khan to sleep. This year is shaping up well for boxing fans.

    Parker was lucky to get past Ruiz - who is a smallish, and out of shape Heavyweight. I scored the fight for Ruiz. I think Parker got a gift. He won't be so lucky against Hughie Fury - who will outbox him at will. The bias judges won't even be able to score this schooling for Parker. Hughie Fury beats Wilder as well, I think he outboxes him, and possibly knocks him out late.

    Washington out boxed Wilder early but he just has insane power, I don't think Hughie Fury or Parker beat Wilder, Love him or hate him, he has phenomenal power.

    Doesn't look like it. Pac has negotiated terns with Amir Khan... who is a bigger scalp and probably bigger money fight than Horn.

    After this stuff up Horn should be compensated with a high profile U.S fight though. Win that and maybe he gets a crack at Pacman.
