Danny Green 

This next piece of boxing news will excite fans of Danny Green.  The Australian championship pugilist is set to take on Roy Jones Jr. in Sydney this coming fall.  The fight, to be held on an as yet unpicked date in November, will be for the cruiserweight championship.  Danny Green “The Green Machine” is a hometown boy who hails from Western Australia.  There will no doubt be tons of fans that come out to lend their support to their fellow countryman.  Bear in mind that Aussies will have to play host to the many fans of Roy Jones Jr. who are sure to show up as well.  

Women's Boxing

Ladies will especially love this bit of boxing news:  women’s boxing will be featured at the Olympics in 2012 which will be held in London.  There will be three weight classes:  flyweight, lightweight, and middleweight.  While the heaviest of the women’s boxers won’t get a chance at Olympic gold, women everywhere have to admit: this is a step in the right direction.   We’ll have to wait and see who’ll emerge as frontrunners among the Aussie women to receive the nod to represent Australia in the summer of 2012.  I told you this was boxing news women would love!

 

Ali

Whether you are an Aussie or an American, chances are if you love boxing, you also love Muhammad Ali.  The legendary boxer has been chosen as the “greatest sports star” by Alpha magazine.  That’s right, Australia’s leading sports magazine has given this coveted title to the man who could “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee” at his peak.  Heath Kelly, editor for Alpha magazine, says that Ali was a “skillful” and “clever” boxer who participated in some of the most memorable fights of the 20th century.  Amazing how much Ali is still revered in today’s boxing world.  He is an important part of the history of boxing, which makes him a continually relevant piece of boxing news.

Stay tuned for more boxing news tidbits that Australians care about and want to know.   Since the late 1800s boxing news has included Australia; and that isn’t going to change anytime soon! 

Boxing Superstar Floyd Mayweather Found Not Guilty of Harassing Two Security Guards

As a professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a perfect record of 42 wins and zero losses with 26 wins by way of knockout. While it might not go on his professional record, Mayweather has recorded another win in court as he was recently found not guilty of misdemeanor harassment charges. The charges against the boxer came from an altercation with two security guards from his local homeowner's association. The guards had placed tickets on some of Mayweather's cars, and this led to a heated encounter. According to police, the guards alleged that during the confrontation Mayweather said, "My homies have guns. If you want me to call them, they'd come over here and take care of you."

While prosecutor Lisa Luzaich tried to make the argument that the two guards, Miguel Burgos and Aaron Ryan, were afraid for their safety, defense attorney Richard Wright countered that the two men did not actually behave like they were very afraid. Wright even had the two guards admit that they would have rather not taken the case to trial while they were on the witness stand. Still, Luzaich continued by pointing to Mayweather's checkered criminal history, including allegations of battery against another security guard from the same homeowner association in a different incident involving parking tickets.

Justice of the Peace Diana Sullivan found Floyd Mayweather Jr. not guilty since she believed the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Burgos and Ryan were afraid for their safety. A key piece of the story that swayed her decision was that the two security guards were sitting inside of a vehicle during the entire duration of the encounter and that they could have driven away at any time if they were truly afraid.

This isn't the first time Mayweather has been in the news for criminal charges. The boxer has a trial scheduled for November 4 concerning a misdemeanor battery charge for supposedly poking a different homeowner's association security guard in the face during a conflict over parking tickets. Additionally, Mayweather Jr. has an evidence hearing scheduled on December 21 for felony charges that came up as a result of a confrontation he had with an ex-girlfriend at her home. While his lawyers have maintained that he is innocent of these charges, being one of boxing's finest won't keep him from facing up to 34 years in prison if convicted on the felony charges from his ex-girlfriend

Australian Boxing Takes a New Twist in Hollywood

When people are asked about Australian boxing, the may ponder a bit trying to think of a famous boxer from the land down under. They don't necessary get an immediate vision of Hugh Jackman. However, with the release of the futuristic sci-fi movie, Real Steel, Jackman will yet again make an impression in another genre.

In Real Steel's storyline Jackman plays a down-on-his-luck robot manager working in the futuristic sport of automated robot boxing (http://www.thesundaily.my/news/177807). He's at the bottom of the circuit scrounging from fight to fight event. However, Jackman's character was a human boxer who was on the verge of gaining his own best title right before the robots took over the sport. So now as a manager guiding a robot to new heights, he blends the savvy of a real fighter with that of a technology controller in a familiar environment, the ring. The buildup to the finale fight carries the movie as the viewer wants to root for Jackman's character and his comeback.

With the scrappy nature of his accurate portrayal of Wolverine in the X-men movie franchise, Jackman made his mark as an actor well-suited for fight scenes and action movies. Real Steel takes the Australian into a different realm where there is far more attention on his knowledge of body acting, portraying more messages in the movie than the script itself. Why? The robot emulates it's controller when in the boxing ring. Thus the acting has to go a step further, like a three-level Star Trek chess game, anticipating both the view of the robot in the ring as well as the controller on the ring-side who was a former boxer himself.

Real life boxing is near and dear to Hugh Jackman, his father having been a past winning boxer in the country's military. As a bit of homage to the sport of his father as well as his family, Hugh Jackman installed a bit of his soul possibly to make the movie's character a success. Australians can be proud of their actor son; he's entered the ring yet again to win another title in Hollywood
