  • Mitchell was woeful, doubt he will ever get a title shot. Liam Wilson looked great he will deff be up for a title fight soon.

  • Jayde Mitchell lost against a man rated 161 in the world. He is over hyped and hasn’t fought anyone of note. Kashnstov was a nobody who has fought nobody. Jayde – you have been found out and your excuses were terrible “less than 50%”. If you actually were that cooked why the hell would you fight in the first place? No one would!!!! Aus Boxing stop hyping this guy, focus on talented boxers who are actually going somewhere. Jayde – focus on commentating – you are no where near a top 20 prospect and now your career is done. Cya pal

  • Laughable this guy tried to fight Zac Dunn. Why would a fighter with Champion material go backwards to fight a bum? As per last night – too many people caught up in local fighters – we need to focus on the bigger stage and support those who are a chance – Zac, Kambosis, Akkaway etc.

    • Agreed – it’s bizarre the publicity that Jayde has got over genuine good boxers we have. Jayde should fight Mundine, take a pay day then retire and focus on commentating. He has been very disrespectful and last night proves to the world where he is at
