Watch heated head to head ahead of Foley vs Telford the fight that has Australia talking

There was no social distancing when Darragh Foley [18(9)-4(0)1] and Ty Telford [ [6(2)-0-1]]weighed in ahead of their clash tomorrow.

The pair went nose to nose as they traded insults a day before a clash that has captured the attention of the Australian fight fraternity.

It got so 2019 with pandemic problems seemingly put to bed Down Under as the ever colourful ‘Super’ warned the 23-year-old that he was going to make him ‘look like an idiot’.

Prior to the grandstanding Foley came in at 137.25lbs, with Telford slightly heavier at 139.75lbs.

The Australian based Dub takes on undefeated prospect Telford on the undercard of rising star Tim Tszyu’s first fight since his Jeff Horn win.

On the line when Foley fights the 23-year-old will be IBF, WBA and IBO ranking titles, meaning the Blanch native could go into 2021 back inthe world’s top 15.

It’s a progressive fight for the ever entertaining Foley on a high profile card and it’s one that has the Australian boxing community talking.
