Dont think anybody should really put any weight into this whole affair.

The drugs thing I dont excuse

In terms of being asked to throw a fight, I think a lot of this is all talk from Herbie's POV. He is neither in the position to set up such a fix at this stage of his career and the only reason he is talking about it now is because he is unable to. If somebody offers a washed up old fighter a million pounds to throw a fight that he would probably lose anyway is it any surprise he might say yes?

Its all just talk. There is a reason why The Scum have targeted an old ex fighter who has a number of previous convictions with such an offer. If you were to get a world champion talking like that, Then i might listen.

Watch the video mate, its not just a shitty article.

What you never see with these things is what goes on off camera. If I was a faded boxer and a rich looking oil sheikh offered me millions to set up a boxing tournament in the Middle East , I would say whatever I thought he wanted me to say in order to get the deal done, regardless of whether I actually intended to carry it out. Herbie is a very shady guy, but tough to call him a cheat based on this video from The Sun, who in my eyes have zero credibility when it comes to presenting facts.

A fair point.

But go onto youtube and watch the fight. The punch that "KOd" him barely (if at all) landed. He talked about going down in a particular ROUND in the video online of him offering to throw fights. Who knows, maybe he or his "sponsors" had bets that he'd lose in that particular round.

Wasn't a man murdered at Hide's house at a party.


I really detest the NOTW / Sun entrapment scams.
