Julius is a dam fine dude and i used to train with him at the Pea****s but his nothing more than a shell of the fighter he was capable of being.Its just a shame to see him turn up the way he does just to cash a chip.
Believe or not fighters box for money.... You would mad to enter just a dangerous sport for anything else.
Francis has done his job. He was a solid contender for the British crown for a number years, and then he was a fair test for any up and comming prospect in Britain or Europe. You had to be world top 10 material to take him out early.
Francis has had a fine career.
