Amber fluid won’t be flowing but a number of pubs and clubs will open their doors early on Sunday morning to air Alex Leapai’s historic underdog battle against heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Venues in Toowoomba, Brisbane and the Gold Coast will be opening from 6am to air the bout, which is exclusively shown on Foxtel’s Main Event channel.

Due to Leapai’s ties to the area, the Logan Brothers Leagues Club has been given special licence from Foxtel to air the pay per view event. Club president Matt Mead said the community would turn up in droves to cheer the local hero.

‘‘There’ll be a breakfast on and an old boys reunion because Alex himself is a Logan Brothers old boy, playing for the club from when he was young to seniors,’’ he said.

‘‘There’s a lot of people who aren’t really boxing fans but they’re getting involved just to support Alex and his family.’’

The interest is just as strong in Brisbane, with city venue Pig ‘n’ Whistle Riverside opening from 5.45am to accommodate interest, according to manager Jack Nicholson.

‘‘We’ve had loads of inquiries, the phones have been ringing off the hook for the last week and a half,’’ he said.

Soft drink will be served until 9am, when punters will hopefully be able to celebrate an unlikely Leapai victory with a harder beverage.
