    Anyone smell an upset?

    I've got 20 bucks on Briggs to win 145

    Unfortunately, I don't see an upset happening... Would be great, as I hate Green, but I don't think Briggs is in good enough shape. I wish I could watch this fight, looking for streams at the moment, haha, but I think it's best I miss it anyway because I don't wanna see a former great fighter in Briggs suffer a KO.

    Considering that Tua was -2800 in his fight and he almost lost...I'm hoping for the upset here...
    like yourself, I don't see it happening but anything is possible in MMA and boxing.

    He's been really inactive but it's definetly worth a small wager. A JMM/Daniel Jacobs parlay would be better.

    3 years ago this would have been the biggest fight in Australian boxing history.

    Whilst I'm hoping Briggs comes in sharp it's rare that kind of layoff benefits a boxer.

    Always been a Briggs fan, I'll get on him, Danny may go head hunting early on and slip up.

    No he didn't, he made the cruiserweight limit. It's at cruiserweight, not "Greenweight", as long as he's just under 91kg, he's under the limit.

    That was shocking. Lost a bit of respect for Briggs.

    Glad I didn't even make the effort of walking down to the pub.

    Yes and I'm even a fan of Briggs but that was a Rip.

    Now it's making sense why the event didn't get licensed in Sydney. I guess Briggs rumoured health problems were probably true after all.

    Sad night for Australian boxing.

    Briggs' nervous system is shot. They wouldn't license him to fight in the original location. Sad to see him go down like that, but to say Briggs took a dive is pushing it.
