Yep, I hope Hennessy can add a few more names to his stable, maybe he can sign one or two of the Olympians.

this is a good move for chunky. hopefully he'll get his career back on track and go on to achieve what a lot of people think he's capable of. being with ****** has been bad for him the last couple of years. he can only go up now, not down.

should be good.

Regardless who promoting degale needs more fights, two fights since he lost is shocking stuff

A lot of people are very misguided.

I disagree with you, a lot of people think he may well achieve and recapture the British title one day, I certainly do.

I refer back to my previous point.

Tyson Fury
James Degale
Chris Eubank Jr
Kid Galahad

Channel 5

This is good for UK boxing.

I think this is a great opportunity for both Degale and Mick

Glad Degale didnt wait until his contract expired to fight just to spite ******. 75% of a purse is better than 100% of no purse.

Really can't see why anyone has an issue with this the more fights on the more channels the better.I've given Hennessy a lot of shit about the way he handled Froch's career but think he's playing a blinder here.

Channel 5's coverage is half hearted, tacky and rushed.

Great news I think Degales had a good last 3 fights matchmaking wise but the problem is he isn't getting enough fights with ****** so its a really good move IMO especially considering he'll be on Channel 5. Fury and Degale will do real good numbers, regardless of what you think of each of them they are two of the bigger names in British boxing to the general public.

Degale will do well to get a million viewers. Fury's figures have started to drop steadily with his last few fights.
