When I was living in the UAE and UK, boxing stories featured quite heavily in daily newspapers.

Many lead stories were fight reports or breakdowns of upcoming fights.

Even fighters who were from outside those countries would have stories written about them.

In Australia a lot of people don’t know fighters from outside Australia, which I think is strange as I know many people are interested in the sport.

We have the never ending drama around Mundine and Green, neither of who are world class fighters (anymore).

All this leads me to wonder about why there is a lack of interest from journalists around boxing in Australia.

Australia and the UK share a lot of the same interests, yet this one is missing.

Any ideas?
