Looks like Burns will escape the embarrassment before his home crowd. God is kind to him.

She never returned any of the contracts I sent to her agent.
That's probably because you always requested home advantage Shaunster, I'm willing to travel to her own back yard to **** her up......... the ass.

But seriously, ****** is a sneaky little cunt. To not even offer a full refund for fight tickets just shows how he don't give a shit about the fans.

In all honestly I've sat here for the last fifteen minutes trying to think up an argument so I can give Burns the benefit of the doubt but I simply dont know enough about him or the way his camp does business to do so. I'm still inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt however and say he wanted the fight and the problems have come from promoters not reaching an agreement but, as implied earlier, I'm not informed enough on the situation to defend that position.

Burns has spent about 12k of his own money paying for two training camps for fights that have not happened. He's getting screwed here.

- Burns - Vazquez is announced and tickets go on sale, with no press conference featuring the opponent.

- Vazquez appears on camera in February saying there is no agreement for the fight with Burns.

BORKED


- Frank issues a statement saying that the reports on forums saying the fight won't happen are false, threads on these issues where closed and the fight continues to be advertised.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

- A boxing news journo confirms that on Feb 18th Vazquez told him that he is not coming over for the Burns fight as they have not agreed terms.

- On 2nd March Vazquez was in the gym sparring with Ponce De Leon.

- On 4th March the fight is confirmed as not happening, with illness cited as the reason. A doctors note dated 25th February is provided.

So if Broner signs to fight one of the these fighters, how long will it be before threads are made saying that Broner DUCKED the fighter he didn't pick.

SMH!!!

I had to pay another 140 for new flights today because Easyjet wanted 160 to transfer us mate.
Add to that my grandaughter's birthday party is on the 20th and we're both copping a whole load of shit for this now.
It's a nightmare I could really have done without.All I wanted to do was see a guy I used to see in the gym as a nobody fight the biggest fight of his life with my boy.
It's really getting me down today.Could've done without it.

Am I a dick for being selfishly over the moon about this?

(I was actually looking forward to Burns vs. Vazquez, but that weekend is the wife's b-day so it's for the best I'm not tied up watching boxing all day for once...this way I get to do the right thing and not miss out on anything...)

If you take into account how much trouble and money it's causing me (an internet acquaintance who contributes nothing to the enrichment of your life) then yes.
A little bit.

Dude's night invincible. You can't even verbally assassinate him on here, such are the heights of his paranoia and preemptive security measures.

Our only hope is that Del Boy is a sleeper agent, the asset of a rival promoter, able to get close to him and then strangle him in the sauna like...

I smell a class-action lawsuit

EDIT: Nevermind, the card is always "subject to change".
