I'm not for or against any promoter for the sake of it. I used to be extremely critical of Hennessy a while ago, and I think those criticisms were fair at the time, but now I am happy to say he's turned things round and is doing an excellent job. I don't have any personal bias, I just want what is best for the sport and for the fighters. The promoters who are delivering right now are Hearn and Hennessy, and all the others aren't delivering for us fans.

I'll continue to support promoters who do the right thing for the fans and fighters. I'm not going to support those who ruin careers, refuse to pay the fighters and rip fighters off, just for the sake of being unbiased. I am biased - but only towards those promoters who make the sport better.
Spot on pal. While boxnation has been quality for the cards around the world that sky have no interest in, domestically the F.****** cards are absolutely atrocious.

His latest one has a surprisingly good main event but once again a terrible undercard. Groves and Cleverley fighting nobodies. Disappointed.

Hearn while new to this game has his fighters on sky in hd fighting regularly against decent opposition. Its only a matter of time before he ends up with the vast majority of names from the other promoters too.
