Although it could be a lot better too, Frank needs to get Ricky his big fights sooner rather than later. Who would have thought that Nicky Cook would be Ricky Burns very own Kebede, Frank has to deliver fast now, & im sure the unfair stick hes getting could be a blessing in disguise for Burns, cos a wounded ****** is a dangerous animal indeed, & no doubt he looked like an cornered tiger when he was questioned ringside...

Ayes true Mr Bru.

Was a bit pissed with it and tbh its like it never happened...yet he was taken well (away from home)......which i liked.


Murray/Mitchell........a look at ma posts will probably show ma reasoning/outcome.


Am not questioning anyone either btw, dunno why but i like the Mitch......he pretty honest in himself and did some good work tonight, very adaptable, outshined one dimensional Murray ten fold.......THATS what i liked.


Start to end he led with or used a left uppercut......not rare...........hardly standard though...........yet 9/10 it came through (Tibbs)

It's money in the bank .

There is no chance Burns was involved in this . My assumption would be Cook either had a bad training camp or some sort of an injury , something bothering him but that could still get him cleared for the fight . He was already a HUGE underdog , now he could possibly be also bothered by some health problems . Why wouldn't you want to make some quick extra cash if you weren't going to win anyway .

The bottom line is nobody would have placed that much money on a guy who had 8 finished out of 31 fights . He was backed as low as 1/2 to finish Cook , thats unexplainable and there is no logic behind it at all .
Burns has nothing to do with this at all , Nicky Cook and somebody around him most likely involved sadly .
Couldn't have been said any better. Burns I believe had nothing to do with it but Cook knew he was finished before the bell.

Just a real shame for Burns.

so shut the **** up.

shall I provide you with proof of the report?
The thread title is was the fix in? Its a question. I think its suspicious as far as the betting action goes. How could you not?

All that money went on a 3rd round stoppage for a reason, dont you think?

Do you seriously think a bunch of people started making max limit bets on a 3 rd stoppage on a hunch?

Then the fight goes off with an inconclusive finish to it. Still that is not suspicious?

I cant see what reason you d have to defend it really. You have to consider all posibilities, dont you?

So in conclusion, shut the **** up. Fake godfather.

Cook knew he was injured before he even got into the ring and so did plenty of others. Its the only explanation.
Sorry for quoting myself but that 5/1 in the 1st was backed in from 12's about 90 minutes before the fight.

Its ****ing ridiculous.

Exactly. To not even consider this is complete stupidity

3rd round was 3/1 a few hours before the fight, 1st round was 17/1, must have been pounded just before the fight.

Disgusting. Another black eye for boxing. What makes it worse is the sport got a ****ing bat round its head last weekend with Williams/Lara.

As far as I remember 1st and 3rd round stoppage was way lower than 2nd and the 4th . 4th round was 13/1 and there was some money coming in on the first round around 60 minutes before the fight .

2nd round - 14/1

3rd round - 3/1

4th round 13/1

if his back was that bad and the word was out then surely they would have put that massive wedge on a 1st round stoppage

True Mr Bru but Cooks probs already bouncing down the town.....dosent sit well with me.

I wanted to see him smashed...........the same man that reckoned and SAID Harrison was scared to fight him yada yada......and if i remember right......Harrison via phone had Cook pressing the hold button.



Anyways, not good.

Money was coming in rapidly on the first round an hour prior to the fight. What ****ing else do you need to know? Everything is set in stone. The bookies clearly knew what the **** was going down hence most bookies suspending round betting.
