Chris Smedley, one of Cameron’s trainers, was on the end of the remarks made by Barry Michael, a former world champion and current Promoter/ Matchmaker living in Melbourne. Michael said: “They think they are taking the Commonwealth title back to England. Are we going to let these mother******* Poms win?” Then he added: “I reckon Zack Dunn is going to tear Liam Cameron a new *******.”

Michael was doubtless talking tongue in cheek. The 61-year-old can’t dislike Poms too much - he was born in Watford.

Brian Amatruda, owner of The Melbourne Pavilion posted a clip of his remarks on Facebook, with the message “Bit of feeling here.”

But it clearly didn’t upset Smedley and super middleweight Cameron later ‘liked’ the clip on Facebook.
