I enjoy the back and forth we have, it's entertaining at times.
Mate I can assure you I don't dislike you how can I? I've not got a clue who you are.
I simply don't agree with some things you say, do remember I see thing involving fighters from the inside you don't, yet you pass comments on things your not privy too

I saw this and was about to rant about Jonny 'the entertainer' Nelson.

Billy is a good poster but can be embarrassingly one eye about his own fighters. The last burns fight was a robbery and we all know it. It's not their fault that there hasn't been an automatic rematch that's the Bobfather's call but it was a blatant robbery none the less.

Billy is a good guy.

A lot of folk won't realise that Billy is also a care worker. Boxing isn't his full time job so I think he's done alright for himself don't you think.

And he's a huge asset to the forum.

Fair enough, when i say 'hate' i maybe used it in the wrong context, what i meant was that when i come on here, which i admit isnt as often as i did years ago before the place crashed and everyones accounts got wiped, it does seem like you take a fair bit of abuse, a lot of it is banter which is fair enough as you do give it back.

Banter is one thing, but ive seen a lot of stuff which is just shit to be honest, personal abuse, posters questioning your credentials as a trainer, talking about your own past as a boxer etc as well as a lot of unwarranted digs at Ricky.

As a fan of Burns i admit in his last two fights he hasnt looked his best but there were reasons for that, bot guys were tricky opponents, one he made quit after showing great heart and the othe other he got a shocking injury early doors which obviously had an impact on the performance. I do think he was lucky to get the draw to be honest before anyone calls out nuthugger etc but he did and now moves on to what looks to be an even tougher fight against Crawford, who once Ricky beats will no doubt be called a hyped up bum.

Didnt like Johnny Nelson as a fighter, one of the most boring boxers ive seen yet called himself the entertainer lol but he seems a decent bloke and has grew on me over the years.

Its great that guys in the sport take time to come on here. I remember years ago Darnell 'Ding a Ling' Wilson used to post in the general and have to say he was sound as **** and very down to earth, this was at the time he was seen as a top contender and had some great highlight reel KO's.

I enjoy coming on and reading peoples thoughts on the sport but find it difficult to take at times when someone blatently has a pop at one of my fighters for no apparent reason. ie Ricky getting a broken jaw and folk expecting him to put a lifetime performance in, my fighters are superbly fit and work very hard in and out the gym and deserve any sucess that comes there way. i cant think of any other fighter in the UK who would have shown the courage Ricky did that night.
And i did come on here to say we got lucky with the decision.
But hate! lol
