A hotly contested rematch between Daniel Lewis and Tim
Tszyu on the
final day of the NSW Boxing State Titles for 2011 drew the crowds to Fishos in
Brighton Le Sands for a classic city versus west battle.
The rematch was a result of controversy surrounding their initial
final on Saturday, in the youth light welterweight division, when one of the
rounds was believed to have been shortened to two minutes instead of the
required three minutes.
Tim won the Saturday fight on points but the rematch was even more
ferocious with both boxers being fowled twice and having two points taken off
each. Daniel, who trains at Windsor, appeared more aggressive but Tim’s
controversial style of slipping inside kept him safe much of the time. The turning
did invite punches to the back of the head, which Daniel was eventually
penalized for, along with a low blow. Tim was fowled for holding.

Well guys what a year! We were at fights pretty much every weekend last year
and there were more events across MMA, pro and am boxing and kickboxing than
we’ve seen in a very very long time. And it looks like it’s going to be
even more hectic this year.
We put this magazine together to wrap up all the Cornerman highlights of 2010 but also to give you a bit of a preview of what’s in store for 2011.
We will continue to cover every amateur boxing event we can – via the website and videos – and we will update our list of NSW State Title and PCYC/Industrie Title holders (page 10 and 13) as challenges occur. There is plenty happening in amateur boxing as the state shapes up for Olympic selection trials. We expect to have quite a few blue singlets on the London team for 2012.
Pro boxing just gets better and better. Everyone was hoping for it but no one was really expecting a knockout of Mundine in his fight against Wood. Can Wood do it again? Read our story on page 14 for our view.
Boxing may have been our bread and butter but we also hope to be at more MMA and kickboxing events this year as these ring sports are truly going from strength to strength.
UFC might be bringing the crowds and the publicity but there are plenty of other championships and tournaments for the MMA fan. We spoke to Bernardo Trekko Magalhaes on page 28 for tips on how to survive the cage and fight announcer James White also shared his views on the sport on page 25.
For each type of fighting sport we’ve put together a list of the top ten fights or the top ten fighters. But this is just our opinion – and we know we’re not always right – so if you think we’ve forgotten something please let us know!
This, our inaugural issue, also includes some conditioning tips for every type of exercise fan, whether you’re training to fight, or just want to get fit. See page 30 for details.
And if you want a copy of a particular fight on DVD don’t miss our DVD catalogue on pages 32 to 34.
To start with Cornerman Magazine will be bi-annually but as we get larger we hope to come to you more frequently. You can check us daily at www.cornerman.com.au and don’t forget we’re always in your corner. Happy fighting!
For everyone that lives and breathes ring sports.
