    Seen him on twitter offering to meet guys who are struggling with depression etc for a coffee.

    He is a very exciting fighter, I don't get why he gets a hard time and some dislike him?

    Probably his selling of CBD oil on twitter...ha
    In fairness probably a lot to do with how he came across pre the Fitz fight and maybe cause hes a scouser. I don't mind him - think he will have a decent career.

    Because he’s insecure, cares too much about what people think and is forever sucking up to people. He’s a bit like Bellew.

    He does come across a bit cheesy don't he and everywhere you look on social media, he's ****ing there!

    Neither like or dislike Fowler but can see why people want to throw pelters at him.

    The Matchroom hype has been a bit of a double edged sword for him. He's probably an alright bloke, the trouble is that these days, with social media at your fingertips 24/7, it's too easy for people to release their inner t**t out into the open. It would be very interesting to see how the likes of Ali would look to us all if they were living in such an age.

    Entertaining fighter who’s been humbled a bit. The rest of the country hates us do no surprise the **** he gets. It’s unwarranted even if he is slightly annoying.

    He's probably one of the most unlikeable, insecure, cringe boxers out there today. Previously only matched by Tony Bellend Bellew. Never have I seen someone love the sound of their own voice as much as Anthony Fowler. Just listening to him speak, is enough to drive anyone up the wall. You cannot understand a word the dopey facker is saying.

    Like said above, he's forever sucking up to Eddie to the point of embarrassment, he keeps bleating on about how he doesn't care about haters and social media hate yet he's active on it 24/7 responding to anything and everything. His coach Dave Coldwell, an equally repulsive character, has said many times. reading between the lines that Fowler thinks he's better than he actually is and that he doesn't listen when in camp.

    Apart from that he's an alright fella.

    Even that I find dislikeable. I saw the tweet you are referring to, why not just DM the guy quietly? No need to make a big song and dance about it so that YOU look like a good person.

    Mate everyone who talks about mental health doesn't really give two hoots about it. It's just the latest bandwagon for everyone to jump on at the moment to gain popularity. Just look how Tyson Fury used it

    You know what, I really believe he doesn't care what the "haters" say. He hasn't altered his social media persona one bit. He's ****ing relentless on twitter ha.

    I don't like or dislike him. He seems sound enough if a bit cheesy. Gotta respect the work he puts in day in day out.

    I'm still waiting to hear a real life account of him being "arrogant" or "cocky" or just a bit of a bellend. Everyone who's met him, to a man, has said how nice he is. Work that one out.

    Would watch him and Fitz again in a heartbeat and I think the fowler ride is going to be a fun one.

    Is it simply because his name's Anthony?
