The Mount Isa Rodeo was just held on the weekend and is the largest in the southern hemisphere.

The event is supported by Brophys Boxing Troupe which is one of last travelling boxing tents in the world.

On Friday night we went to the boxing and despite the lighting challenges was lucky to get a few good ones in…

Boxing at the rodeo? That's new to me... :)

How dark was the tent? Looks like you used flash.

Some context would have been useful for you. Mount Isa is in a fairly remote part of Australia. This is what the cowboys/rednecks(what we call bogans) consider to be a great night out. When the rodeo comes to town they bring with it a boxing troupe and anything else that drunk people consider fun. Get a belly full of liquor and stand toe to toe with a professional fighter.
These boxing troupes have been travelling the remote parts of the country for the best part of a hundred years.

Thanks for the info, never heard of it till this thread.

I've actually been to Mount Isa but only for a few days at a mine site.

Any chance Mundine might show up at one of these? ;)

Mundine did come out here and made an ass of himself. :confused:

If he came out again they'd be lining up to knock him out.
