considering some of the talent hennessey has, this is unforgiveably shocking. he knows people will tune in (if there is anything to tune in to) just for froch.

What a swag looking bill.

He's being stupid here this would be a great chance for his young prospects to showcase themselves. O'Donnell-Glover should be on this card it makes much more sense.

Saying that i think there's a rota for his 'top fighters'' and it goes round who headlines a bill. I think Dominic Ingle mentioned it once before on a itv 4 show.

There is no way they can insist on 11.30 last entry if the only decent fight on the bill is 2am. I'm taking a few pals who don't care about boxing and that would bore them stiff.

We need to petition Hennesey to put the AA-Taylor fight on a big screen or something

Exactly. I'm going with both my brothers, the eldest will be bored shitless and will be struggling not to go to a bar before and aftert froch.

11.30 my ass.

Yeah 'Team Hennessy' does seem to be a bit like 'Jobs For The Boys' - Froch and Fury excepted.

Everyone else seems to be on rations, when some ought to be on the three course meal and others ought to be canned.

I don't hold anything against any fighter and their attempts to earn a living, but how often have we seen Lenny Daws or Wayne El**** get ten rounds of coverage on telly when we could see Darren Barker, John Murray or whoever - unless they are completely blind they will notice that plenty of people have been saying that both of them are inactive - why not get them active and get them coverage - give them an identity - make people know who the **** they are!

It takes as much time to look after a good fighter as it does an average one, and a bad one - so spend your time sorting out the good ones from the bad ones, get rid of the bad ones and give us what we want.

We are paying your wages - too much it seems judging by your waistline!

People going to get a bit boisterous if this is the level we are shelling out to see. My kid brother's coming with me who likes Froch but ain't a big boxing fan - if we ain't got Tyson Fury perhaps we can have Nathan Tyson and a few Derby County fans instead

Poor card indeed.. With a 2am start too...

I wonder how much longer Froch will stay with Hennesey...

Glad i only bought 50's for this fight. How is Tom Glover got a fight planned? Does it not matter what happens in the John O'Donnel fight?

I'm taking a few mates who don't know too much, so we're gonna have to get drunk.

This is a risky strategy by Fat Mick. A shit card is gonna leave the Nottingham mob in the pubs until the early hours, and if Froch were to lose?

My God, Nottingham will be burned to the ground.

Best thing they could do - scrap most of the card, show Abraham on a big screen in the arena, then put on a couple of fights until Froch.
