Are you mad? He delivered Paul the British title shot, the European title, a World title fight, a world title eliminator, Hearn did a stellar job with Mccloskey.

Seated and defeated

Have to agree that no way did Hearn hold mckloskey back. Got a very average fighter a world title shot.

He needs to give it up. Needed a gift against Prescott and got done over at the weekend. He just isn't world level. Never has been and never will be.

McCloskeys only real quality was making his opponent look bad and generally serving up absolute stinking contests. Once he came up against someone who was as much of a slippery operator as he is he was taken apart. He never even looks like hes in decent shape and his theory that he would have somehow beaten Khan is now even more laughable. Hearn did a good job getting him some big fights but British/Euro is his level.

I was fooled into betting on him v Prescott and got lucky, I had Corley on points the other night (20/1)

He should go for the European title again no shame in coming up short at world level at least he tried.

Adil Anwar vs Mccloskey for vacant british title after Theophane vacates. Easy work for Anwar.

he looks ancient, his reflexes are gone and he really didnt seem like his heart was in it during that post fight interview, defence was ****ing woeful, shots were slow and telegraphed, head static. its over for paul

so what youre saying is all domestic / european fighters should give up? and professional fighters who get above that level but arent world class shouldnt try to make some money?
