Tilley takes one for the team

Staff Writer

Matt Tilley is one of the longest serving Breakfast Announcers in Australian radio, and a key reason for that is his ability to put himself 'out there' and create water-cooler talk.

Tomorrow, the Fox FM Breakfast host will take part in a 'Champ vs Chump' boxing bout, when he lines up against champion women's boxer Lauryn Eagle.

Fox FM will stream the fight live at their website tomorrow morning at 8.10, and the fight is planned to last three rounds. Optimistic perhaps.

Matt Tilley said, “I’m calling this Thursday “Boxing Day” – hopefully being a woman Lauryn is confused by this and lines up out the front of Myer. I’ve never been confronted with so much innuendo in my life – she’s calling me a jabber and I’m calling her a hooker. Working in brekky radio has only one thing in common with boxing – you get to wear your dressing gown to work”.

Breakfast co-host Jo Stanley will commentate the bout.
