He's left Australia, pulled out of the fight with Anthony Mundine. Does anybody know what happened to cause this. Pretty disappointing for boxing fans in Australia Phone Post 3.0

Nobody cared about that fight. No tickets were being sold, and Australia is always shady with big name boxers coming over.

He wanted upfront money because Australia is known for shadiness and ALL big name fighters going there demand up-front money. They couldnt give it to Shane because they werent selling tickets.

Damn I was actually looking forward to that lol. He can fight over here for more and on Showtime or HBO. Fighting Mundine doesn't make a lot of sense IMO Phone Post 3.0

What happens with mundines career now, I hope he retires because he seems like the biggest dreamer with the way he thinks he could fight Floyd Mayweather Phone Post 3.0

Ten eight round - I'm in Sydney, no one gives a fuck about this fight. People care more now that it is off, no more Mundine wasting our time.

Tickets start at $50, then $100 for a decent view before you get to the La-di-da $300-$500 ringside packages.

Mosley recieved only 300K (three weeks ago) of promised $1M total. He was supposed to receive 700K by fight time.

Only 1500 tickets sold as of this morning.
He checked out of hotel last night and confirmed he's withdrawn.

A shady promoter named Kodar Nasser is planning to take over promotion and reschedule for 6 weeks time.

This man (Nasser) has been involved in Dodgey Mundine fights in the past and was apart of the recent Sonny Bill Williams vs Francis Botha* debacle, that resulted in a 10 round world title fight.. Phone Post
Apparently Jeff Fenech put up $500,000 to keep Moskey in Australia, do you know if that's true ???? Phone Post 3.0

Why is Shane even taking fights like this to begin with? If he needs the money that bad, just sell that badass cabin in Big Bear. Phone Post

Ten eight round - They had mentioned this fight as 'a gateway to Mayweather.' Phone Post
Really? Shane's window to beat Floyd came and has passed long ago. I wish they would've met a few years earlier and Shane might have finished him. Since their first fight, Shane was decisioned by Canelo who just..well you know. Phone Post

Wow I didn't even hear about this fight. This Australian fighter must not be very popular or known cause I would assume their combined names could sell at least 5k tickets. Mia vs shields sold out a medium sized venue but Mosley can't crack 2k ticket buys epic fail all around for this event. Phone Post 3.0

I guess the people that originally used to go to mundine fights or watch with the hope of seeing him get k.o'd don't even care anymore! It's a shame cos he does have great talent but his mouth n constant chip on his shoulder Muhhamed Ali wanna be act is a joke. I think Australia has finally gotten sick of him Phone Post 3.0

If you lived in a shittier part of Australia you'd have heard about it because an NRL player was fighting on that card too.

As an Aussie I was really looking forward to seeing Mosley ko Mundine. Worthless bit of human shit that he is. That Leb Nasser is the biggest grub in sports over here too. Fuck em both. Phone Post 3.0
