You're slagging off Khan for how many tickets he sells but compared to Tim, he's a monster draw. The Echo arena would live up to its name if he fought there....

I'm.not sure the point you're making. Bradley doesn't constantly harp on about his popularity the team.khan do. Is khan a bigger star? Yeah. Is he fighting in a superfight? No.

I got in touch with Dunkin originally to interview Bradley when we had our Boxing Site experiment. That all fell apart but he'd emailed me back and I had been doing some other writing about UFC's business model. So I asked him about that, he answered and we swapped him esmails where he laid out, as an example, Tim's situation.

It was a good illustration of how contracts are used to exploit sportsmen. I wasn't writing a book about Bradley or Shaw. It was originally an article, but I've got some good pieces that would make a solid book down the line. We'll see. I've got enough projects as is.
why have u edited this post 3 times? and taken out the part where u said nobody gives a shit about bradley?

My point is you're saying that Khan can't draw for shit in the US yet his attendances and HBO figures say otherwise. I want to see some evidence to back up your claim

Well no one gives a shiot about Bradley as a topic. A book about Floyd, Manny etc might work, but they're hard to contact.

I edited because I didn't really explain what I was doing and I don't like to be vague over what was a fair question.

Aye but when Bradley is in his hometown, he still cannot shift 1000 tickets.
