Guest Intro

Today’s guest … Is Australian boxing royalty.

Having carried the torch for Australian boxing in the 1970s and 1980s.

He held the IBF Super featherweight World Championship from 1985 To 1987 after beating Lester Ellis in a 15-round war dubbed the fight of the century.

He was inducted into the Australia boxing hall of fame. And he never took an eight-count in 60 Professional bouts.

Today he’s a motivator, commentator and boxing analyst, appearing on SEN and writing for the Herald Sun. His second passion is property, having anchored property development deals in the tens of millions.

He was a champion in the ring, and he is an even bigger champion out of the ring.

Give it up for boxing legend and the man who pioneered two first names, Barry Michael.
