That right there is enough to view him as a scumbag.
He also loves to dish it out, but has super thin skin himself and can't take any criticism.
He also is biased, like when he says as he did on Friday that David Haye "doesn't deserve the shot or the payday" against Vitali. This even though Haye did what they asked of him and beat Chisora. So Charr and Briggs did deserve the title shot?
He may get some inside info, though he has grown lazy and gets less of that then he used to. But overall, Rafael is a scumbag.
This. Fat Dan knows his stuff which is probably the only reason he's a journalist as his spelling and writing is shite. Always complaining about things but when someone calls him fat on twitter they get blocked!
