What does that b*stard have to do to have his licensed pulled?

After the McKenzie v Macc fiasco he should have been banned for life.

Gavin isn't a big puncher. You can be a really good boxer without blasting guys out of there.

I thought the performance was excellent, albeit against someone who isn't great.

I think Frankie himself would agree that he should be beyond British level and that, in part, is down to Frankie's lack of dedication. Thankfully he's seemed to pull his socks up so hopefully he kicks on from here. He's restored my confidence in him. The talent was always there but I wasn't sure he had the mentality.

But who is he fighting? Southern Area level.

Any elite level fighter would have blitzed this guy within 2 rounds in there first 10 fights.

That's just not who he is. He's a pure boxer in terms of mindset and only really sits on his shots when he sees the openings. He'll never been an early rounds banger, unless his opponent just leaves themselves open.

That was bad but forgivable, no-one wants to see Enzo get flattened again.

He shouldve been banned after nearly getting Briggs killed vs Vitali, genuinely horrific wefeweeing by IJL.

It doesn't help that he's fighting out of his division, still looks like a 10st fighter to me.

If I told you I may 'astound' you again, could you endure another 'astounding' so soon after the last?

I doubt anything could astound me more than Rob's ignorance. Unless you're one of my exes. That would freak me the **** out.
