Not hatred, its fear

Who pays the wages?

Thank you. Come again.

I sympathize with Audley, because I to feel the same on here. Hated and misunderstood. But just like Audley, deep down, we know we're right, its this belief, hope, will, that keeps us smiling in the face of adversity and ridicule.

We are the real warriors!

He who laughs last, laughs loudest!

I don't understand the cunts who hate Audley for the fact that they bought the Haye fight.
Some of them are even David Haye's biggest defenders, and are putting the blame on Audley.
Anybody who didn't realise Audley was shit years before that doesn't have a clue about boxing. Well, that doesn't quite explain it. Even people who don't have a clue about boxing knew that it was a pointless match in a sporting sense.

Haye and Audley are two of a kind.
There's no point hating them. But they are rarely worth watching.

Both of them are rich and most of us are not. So they must be doing something right.

It's the most bullshit excuse, he didn't pay himself that. The goons at BBC did....and those goons are still there now doing it!!!

I know say every single one of you would take it if it was offered on a plate.
A million quid for ten fights back in the day was pretty good value-IF they were relatively stellar fights.

Can anyone remember Nigel Benn having at Audley for about five minutes when he was on the BBC? Saying that he wasn't busy enough and that he was fighting bums? Benn was swiftly let go after that!

And some of the vile sick abuse he receives on here and in the mainstream I find disgusting and a form of bullying. He aint done f*ck all to any of you personally. And it seems like the "lets all laugh at Emile Heskey" bandwagon, because its the "in" thing to do. "Lets all point the finger and laugh at the scapegoat"

Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves!!!!

The BBC excuse is bullshit and you know it! He didn't pay himself that money, BBC paid it! And if you think thats bad, then I suggest you have a good hard long look at the BBC NOW and what they spend money on. Bare in mind, not all of it is being spent, and some prick on top gear who gets paid to act a middle aged idiot for a living, is earning millions a year.

Nobody has a say on where that money gets spent, they take it and blow it up the wall on phone in vote competitions on a weekend.

And considering the byas shite BBC throw out, brainwash, and waste money on still to this day, AND employed a compulsive paedophile for years, I give Audley a thumbs up for raping them on that contract.....a modern day Robin Hood!

You may be laughing at Audley, but guess what, Audley is laughing at you.....because he made it and milked it.
When I am spending my hard earned wages on paying to see him "fight" that gives me justification in my eyes to cast an opinion on him.

I don't mind Audley, likeable guy who just never fulfilled his promise.

A lot of amateurs coming through in Britain should be especially thankful to him

Unfortunately widdy waddy, some of us haven't been brainwashed down to zombies on twatter. And some of us still have the ability to express an opinion articulately, and also back it up. If that means a paragraph or two, then so be it. If pricks like you who don't want to read it, because its a bit long for you, then carry on, browse straight over without saying anything......

But no, widdy waddy can't keep his mouth shut. And the fact that your complaining and forming an opinion, tells me, you did read it, you read it all.....and now your just here to argue.



And you won't win. Bud. Ever. Trust me.

I'm on another level.

I read comment after comment and was just confused. I just could not work out what he had done to deserve so much hate. I finally concluded that most people are just sheep and have no idea why they hate him or if they even hate him at all and are just repeating what everybody else is saying.

I understand he promised he was going to be world champion. But that is called Hype, and without it boxing would be DEAD. I know if Haye debacle. But maybe, just maybe, he was injured like he said he was. He did get injured the Sprott fight, and it is possible he was still suffering from this issue. And considering how much cash he got for this fight he would have been stupid to turn it down.

Also, it is amazing how people can call him a coward or similar yet have never even been in a ring. I have never been in a ring either and so no it is ridiculous to call a man who takes punches for a living a coward.

Plus, given how much money Audley is paid to fight, who can blame him if he decides to postpone his retirement. He has got to earn a living.

I don't know why people hate him. He does leave himself open to ridicule sometimes by saying silly things but I find him quite likeable as a bloke. His career wasn't a total disaster,it just wasn't perhaps as good as people had hoped.
Olympic gold medallist and world title challenger as a pro isn't bad going. He lost a few he should have won and the Haye fight wasn't good at all but I don't think the hate is justified.

His bank account and talent as a boxer don't match. He should have five bob in his account, or a serious overdraft. Alas...

You cannot handle my intellect.

People cannot handle me at full tilt that's why i hold back like superman, always concentrating not to spit something too deep and intellectually controversial.
