hopefully glenn foot can work his way towards a british title fight and have it in north east
Would rather pay £35 for that card than the £39 14 miles north. Was watching Frampton last night and the quality atmosphere and was thinking again how it would be class if we had a geniune north east star who could sell out the arena no bother. Wouldn't be a bad idea for someone half decent from cities like liverpool, shefield etc where there is a lot of talent to magically discover some sort of 'Geordie roots' and base himself up here for his fights, since there has been no card of note since 2009, and no boxers of note for decades.
