No problem whatsoever mate. I expect that. Promoters and trainers should!
But its when its blind backing. Eddie Hearn asked serious questions of Kell Brook after the Carson Jones fight. Questioning his own fighter whether he (in his own words) "Wants it or not?"
Apparently, according to my best pal Eddie, he went round to Kell's "arse" and asked him there and then. "Do you want it or not?"
Kell said he wanted it more than anything.
And now Kell Brook is supposedly the best thing since sliced bread, "The Special One" and all that....
