Live coverage as Garth Wood takes on Daniel Geale at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion for the IBF Middleweight Pan Pacific title.
You are live here at the Hordern Pavilion with Michael Carayannis for the Geale versus Wood fight.
Plenty of Paul Gallen’s teammates in the crowd already. The likes of Michael Gordon, Eric Grothe Jr, Daniel Holdsworth and Nathan Gardner are here to watch their captain in his professoinal boxing debut.
Lauryn Eagle has lost her fight against the inexperienced Shari Ranger. She went down 58-56 on all three judges cards
Eagle’s ex-boyfriend Todd Carney was watching on as he waits for Cronulla skipper Paul Gallen to step into the ring.
Small crowd in at the moment – I haven’t been at the Hordern Pavilion since 2000 when Anthony Mundine, in his second fight beat Kiwi Nik Taumafai.
A little trivia on Taumafai – he went on to fight two more times after his loss to Mundine….without a win.
The next fight will be a crusierweight bout between Brad Pitt and Emosi Solitua. The fighters are preparing to enter the ring now
Thoughts on Brad Pitt’s nickname being “Hollywood?”
Wow! Massive KO victory to Brad Pitt in the first round
Plenty of concern being shown for Solitua. He is very very groggy
Solitua still being attended to in the ring. He is now sitting up but is not in a good way.
Wow that was a massive, massive shot by Mr Hollywood
Solitua has been helped to his feet but still seems dazed. Plenty of concern being shown for him by his corner
The win is Pitt’s 15th and he remains undefeated. For Solitua it was his first loss in his five fight career.
Aside from the main event and Gallen stepping into the ring, I’m looking forward to the Kerry Foley and Robert Berridge fight for the PABA light heavyweight title
Foley hasn’t fought since the two had a draw in 2011. Since then Berridge has gone on to beat the highly rated Serge Yannick and Daniel McKinnon
Before that though, we have Jake Revill fighting Shane Quinn. Both fighters are in the ring now null
Revill, from NZ, is undefeated from his seven fights while Quinn has one loss from eight bouts. This is listed to go six rounds
