They had zero interest in pushing Carl Frampton either despite his drawing power in Belfast.
And yet Sky are putting Tyson Fury on a Box Office show?

Sky have been covering Irish teams for years. The Frampton theories are laughable.

Utter, utter bollocks. Conspiratorial delusions, quite frankly.

It was not a level playing field. A thinly-disguised PR spin job to boost up Lee and in particular Murray. Barker and more so Macklin was frozen out ( I think the sound was doctored so we couldnt hear half of what Matt said but every word from Murray was loud and clear).

Loved the way the camera would pan to Mack when Murray was guffing. Mack looked like a serial killer weighing up his next victim!

Macklin and Lee are far, far more intelligent and articulate than Murray and Barker, but you wouldnt think so from that load of rubbish.

A very unbalanced show - naked bias.
Naked bias? Did not pick up on that at all. All in your head I think.

Barker seems to be slurring his words a fair bit - I don't think it used to be that bad?

Nah, he always talks like that.

Think people read too much into fighter's speech.

In fairness I watched it on a link provided by someone on here, not on TV, but it dis sound to me that Macklin was too far from the mike, or the sound was corrupted only when he spoke???
Technical gremlins?

Credit it Johnny Nelson he seemed to do a good job.
But Murray was allowed dominate it I felt? just saying.

Normally, having seen them before I know that Mack and Andy and intelligent and articulate men with a lot to say that is worth hearing.
Barker, and particularly Murray is a dull boring speaker with nothing worthwhile to say except go on about his sulky attitude towards Mack.

All immaterial anyway...the lads are now in their thirties and none have fought each other.....kind of a shame isn't it?

The sound was poor anyway on the recording - but it's a bit of a stretch to suggest there was a concerted effort to prejudice the viewer one way or another.

Murray dominated because he clearly has the most assertive personality around the table - I'm sure we all know people like that.

It was shit, Nelson was asking the right question but let them all back out of answering them. The only one who would answer everything straight was Andy Lee, the rest still have splinters from the fence they were sat on.

The only difference between all 4 of them is one (Barker) has a promotor whos pretty good at his job and gives a **** about him.

Lou DiBella is a good promotor but he only gives a shit about Martinez and Rodriguez plus gets limited HBO dates. Hatton is the worst promotor in Britain.
