    Has anyone in history ever admitted to cheating and took responsibility for their actions? He should of played the mental elf card and put 10 stone on ready for his comeback

    Hearn will be gathering his troops as we speak ready to try and bend the truth. Frank Smith, Bellew, Parsons, Sam Jones and Koogz.

    This has always been a huge part of the issue, the board have acted correctly and not spoke to the media etc. But it has allowed Hearn and Benn to run their gobs off, making it look like the board were being lazy.

    This is a huge W for the board.

    I honestly believe Hearn has done this in the past but previously there has never been a leak meaning the board had to suck it up in silence knowing they didn't have the cash to challenge hearn.

    The leek (Cheers SNR) has given the board the licence to fight this. Fair play to them, even if Benn fights at the end of the year, they will have truly proven their point.

    I see Benn has done a podcast with James English. Should come in useful if anyone needs to be sick. English is like a budget 2007 Danny Dyer sucking up to so-called hard men and Benn will be playing the mental health card.

    Conor Benn risks ending up with a huge debt to Eddie Hearn for the rest of his life.

    I hope so. I normally don´t ill will to anyone but Conor´s behaviour has been deplorable and the potential for injuring a pro boxer while drugged up hasn´t been really touched on. Boxing is not a game, fighters can die, suffer damage later in life or have the careers ruined by a power punching juiced egglomaniac who normally couldn´t break an egg with his punches.

    English is an odd lad but he's had his own demons too. He was in a Scottish version of "Only Way is Essex" based in Glasgow, online only, which completely bombed. Most of the people in it remain nonentities, English developed various habits peaking with gambling, but managed to turn himself around so fair play. Some of that turnaround was boxing training so for once I think he 'gets' the fighters even if his chat is pretty lowbrow. The niche with gangsters and porn stars is just a way to guarantee adult views that pay well enough on YouTube.

    It really isn't that simple.

    I'm no fan of the Mail either, but a scoop is a scoop. Any proper reporter credits a source, which is why Benson is such a leech.

    Without Riath and the Mail, the Eubank-Benn fight might still have gone ahead. Think about that.

    The news, opinion and sports teams in newspapers are all separate. One of my pals works for the Sun, a good honest football journalist who gets genuine exclusives on his turf - but he's plagued with people going on about the infamous Hillsborough front cover (which was done by the news desk in London) and says how the sports desk never gets any say in stories like that if they come up.

    When the journalists are left alone to do their job properly it should be applauded, regardless of who they work for.

    Benson just sits on twitter clicking refresh, copy and paste whilst people put in all the work travelling up and down the country for not alot of money. Benson is a scumbag
