Niether would I. To be fair this is what happens when fighters dont fight in there home towns. In Sheffield & St.Louis it does 8,000.

Shock... Alexander bottled it. I'm not surprised, he knew Kell Brook would clean his clock.

Maybe he's done it to throw Kell off his momentum.

Gutted. Was looking forward to seeing Brook win the title.

Alexander isnt a draw and the sooner he loses the title the better.

Dunno whether he's ducking but MAYBE he started paying attention to the Brook twitter pics and training videos and thought that he'd not trained hard enough for this 'kid' and wanted some extra time to get serious.

Theres only three reasons why the fight would have been delayed.

1) Alexander is genuinley injured.
2) Poor ticket sales mean there moving the fight to generate more money.
3) Alexander is in line to fight Mayweather on May 4th.

No Ducking. No Promoter conspiracy.

Devon Alexander vs. Kell Brook?

Devon Alexander UD, easy work.

Devon Alexander vs. Floyd Mayweather?

Floyd Mayweather UD, easy work.

The list of fighters that have broken there hands in easy fights and been out for 6 months is longer than the list of things you complain about.

Your hate for everything Hearn makes no sense. Your complainig about things that havent even happened yet, just making bias assumptions.

So yes you do bullshit. And when he does something good you find a way to make it negative.

Bullshit because I go against the norm and consensus?

Do we all have to bow down, think the same way and do the same?

Eddie Hearn is doing something he SHOULD be doing. Helping and making good fights. Considering the fighters he has at Matchroom, he SHOULD be making these fights? What do you want people to give him? A gold star for doing it?

I said the same about Ricky Burns, what do you want people to do? So Ricky makes a big fight at the weight, his first, doing something a fighter at that level SHOULD be doing, what do you want?

The fact is, Hearn aint made one top fight for Kell Brook, this is the first, what do you want me to do?

I don't like Eddie Hearn because of the way he comes across on camera. PR bombardment. Whether he is completely different in real life, I don't know. His Dad did his best to monopolize darts, and I don't like Sky Sports or anybody associated with it.

What do you want? Thanks.....here take more of my money Murdoch?
