I blame the Board for this. It was a Gobshite move to withdraw the license. They should have just banned him for 6 months, a year, permanently. They shouldn't just take the license away and say 'we'll see how we feel in the future'. Then they fuck about with the hearing and put the appeal back. Stupid move. I'm half glad the fight is going to happen under another governing body. It might make the BBBoC wake up a bit
Steve Cunnigham at Upton Park anyone?
