Default Why is Don Charles referred to as Charles by Chisora, Ali Adams, Audley et al?

Is it not a little rude to refer to a 50 year old by his surname only?

Yes, how dare grown men call each other whatever they want? I'm sure if it was an issue, he'd have said.

Why are we reminded every day that Don Charles is 50 years old?

I apoligise, I wasn't clear enough.

These guys refer to him as 'Charles' as though that is his first name and the correct themselves occasionally and call him 'Don Charles'.

Is 'Don Charles' his real name or is it Charles and the 'Don' part is a nickname?

Don Charles (50) probably just prefers to be called that

Just got round to watching the Theopane fight and startedto think, how good is Don Charles as a trainer?

Seems to be a lot of love for him on the forum. Not trolling just interested.
