Sports Nut

Australia’s greatest fight trainer Johnny Lewis says his light-heavyweight destroyer Paul Briggs has regained the hunger of his early career and is ready to finally win a world title.

On his night Briggs can beat Chad Dawson and Tarver.

Just a question here, but do you post anything that is NOT related to Australia?

Yea there is. He posts Aussie news and then disappears. You don't have to be the Good Shepherd here Tommy. I'm not being rude to the guy just asking. If the dude would hop in some of our non Aussie conversations it would be awesome!

I havent disapperaed. Paul Briggs is a hot fighter. He tore apart Stipe Drews in Australia three years ago and he has a great chance against any light-heavy in the world. His life story is inspiring and his book ``heart, soul, fire'' one of the best sports books of the decade.
Not many people have overcome the things he has.

Hey Leeds Lad , Obviously you havent been looking at Aussie boxers too closely . Michael Katsidis ?? do you know that name ?? , Daniel Dawson ...??? , Danny Green ..( now Light Heavy weight)... ?? ... and Paul Briggs is definately world class ... I am not going to comment any further on this ... but just watch and see what happens . If Mundine was your pick of Aussies you obviously dont know the rest ...OK , I am an Aussie fair enough , and I do comment alot on Aussie boxers as does Big Jack but at least we know what we are commenting about . Open your eyes before your mouth mate ... Wait and see what the future holds fr these boxers ...well , if they are able to get the fights they deserve...
Knowing world boxing , they wont .

I said atm.. AT THE MOMENT.. and i stand by it. Those guys may turn out to be great n all but there not world class at the moment. Katsidis is a good fighter and hes very entertaining, but il hold judgement as to wether he is world class or not after hes fought a real top guy at 135lbs.

when u say the top 2 r u meaning kessler and calzache, because when mundine fought kessler yeah mundine lost but he fought a very good fight and proved he was up there with kessler
and also dont count out darchinian , i think he is definately a world class fighter

I did forget about Darchinyan, i would have put him in that category back then and will again if he avenges his defeat to Donaire.

Thats what i think, i hated the comparison's to Prince Naseem.. he was never as good as the Prince IMO he should try and avenge his defeat to Donaire, but he'll probably lose again.

i thought he was better than prince because he had just as good ability but his strength was the best ive seen in ratio to weight
