Boxing in Australia is a minority sport aside from the storylines. To sell fights in Australia you really need some drama to attach yourself to. Obviously Mundine has his personality and his conversion from League and Danny basically has, well, Mundine.
People's interest in boxing in this country is really very limited. It is already a highly competitive sports market and the sport doesn't help itself either. That is pretty much the reason why our best fighters like Kats and Vic just don't get the exposure and subsequently support that their achievements warrant.
