I'm out my depth arguing with you.

Fighters who receive $5 million paydays & who have extended families to support always hang on to their money & don't need to worry about earning a dollar in later life.

I should have realised that before posting.

Thanks for correcting me.

Come off it, Whipman.


You're not going to pretend King Kostya is giving his kids the brush off completely are you?


I'm calling bs if that's the insinuation.

The best thing for kids is if their father is being a father to them with them not in another country.
You wouldn't have a clue what his financial situation is or that of his family.

He certainly seems well off. Here's hoping his current endeavours keep him that way.

There is nothing else. Oh maybe the romance is out of the relationship too. But honestly, there's nothing to see here.
They're a bunch of old women with nothing better to gossip about.

i don't see the huge deal, every family dynamic is different and as has already been stated there doesn't seem to be any bitterness from this side of the pond about the situation, maybe the relationship works better seeing each other at intervals rather than 24/7. Although i do know most of the people on here have no skeletons in their closet and no secrets to hide, perfection is commonplace around these parts right guys

You yourself are passing judgement on others who are merely discussing a news article that went public across the country.

ESB Aussie members accept your apology

Fair call mate

Who do you think paid for the lifestyle his wife, kids, sister, her family and parents get to enjoy in this country?
The question is, does he live here earning a modest income like most of us (while living off millions of investments which very few have), or does he live in a country where the conditions are much worse for everyone else, but he may have greater benefits in terms of money and fame.

Given his kids grew up here, they're settled and it's all they know, I reckon it's a no brainer.

What no ones mentioned yet is that this is very consistent with Kostya's
personality he demonstrated in the ring, which also came across in his book.

He's focused, extremely dedicated and will not compromise.
These attributes made him a great champion but aren't so great for being a Dad or Husband.

Let's stop all this "sitting on his ass" crap too.
While he may not box anymore, he's more than capable of working many jobs, just because he was rich once (and likely still is) it doesn't give him a free ticket to not work if he has obligations.

Good. Now stop behaving like an old woman.

It's not Kostya's fault Benji Marshmellow & the crew lap milk from a saucer.

Ffs. This one's so silly it's not worth responding to.

Sorry bro. Someone else is going to have to do it.

i think he basically conned everyone that he is" an aussie now and loves it" yada yada yada , and now he is showing his true colours , that is my honest opinion .

it seems to me he took as much as possible from his residence and association with this country and then ****ed off home afterwards.

that is how it looks , and that is my opinion .

i mean come on if he is such an "aussie" then wtf is this shit leaving australia to go back and live in russia whether or not his kids come or not???

yes he can do as he likes , but i feel as though the whole time he "played" australian .
