Default Spencer Fearon post on Facebook?

Just heard the Buncey podcast and he asked Fearon to explain a controversial Facebook comment on Groves vs DeGale. Fearon dodged the question and said he want to spread love not hate, doesnt want to create a fuss etc.

Have googled it and checked on the forum but found nothing. Anyone know? Sounds like it was racial, like maybe saying 'people want Groves to win cos he's white'.

"Spencer Fearon
Was racial tention the cause of the bad performance that on the mind of James Degale? Here we had a fighter that won a Gold medal for Britain on his own show get boo'd by nearly everyone in attendance. George Groves fought his heart out but in many of the rounds he would miss with shots but the crowd would go nuts but silence when Degale would work?"

Because he didn't know what Fearon said and wanted to.

Fearon what a knob jockey, I hope he is reading too. No Spencer people dislike Degale because he is a loud mouth ****y cunt and has been from day one, nothing to do with him being ****ing black. Only a narrow minded **** would come to that conclusion.

If a white person said what Spencer did there'd be uproar, apology or not.

I don't see why that stupid cunt should get a free pass.

It's irrelevant, it must have been in his mind for him to even mention it.

He's a narrow minded racist.... despite that he's actually quite a funny bloke.

Not my cup of tea though, I must say.

Spencer is a huge promoter of racial unity - he has described the crowds at his shows as the 'United colours of Benetton'. There is not a racist bone in his body.

This is proved by the fact that he promotes Joe Catchpole - possibly the whitest fighter ever

Chill out.
to call Spencer a racist just shows what a far clueless northen cunt you are.

what have you done in the last 5 years to promote equality and anti racism in your area. because spender could come on here and name 100 different things trust me.
