    He earnt the money, what’s the issue?

    Yeah he might not be PPV, but he turns up to fight and at least works hard to improve in the gym.

    I couldn’t care less if he drives that or a Nissan Micra, I’ll judge him on his performances in the ring.

    I think people need to realise that seeing someone on TV and seeing them in interviews where they are trying to sell fights, build a fan base, not give too much away, appear confident etc. etc. doesn't mean you know them.

    Also I would never begrudge a boxer having nice things or earning good money. It is unbelievable how much determination, dedication and hard work they put in to be at that level. Not to forget, risking their health and well-being for our entertainment.

    I’m not stupid and agree on everything you say. He’s not building a fight at the moment he’s just showing off. I can’t stand Mayweather for the same reason. I don’t care what he’s driving. My main problem with him is just that he’s living off a name and cherry picked opponents. There’s people putting their health on the line as you say, without a name and probably same talent who aren’t getting the opportunities of PPV against no hopers. Then he gets schooled and instead of having to drop down is straight back in a PPV pointless fight conning people and then rubs the proceeds in people’s faces.

    Any elite/fringe world level boxer/fighter I am proud to see flaunt their wealth.

    These men who are at the top end of the sport put their lives on the line and train as hard as any soldier.

    I get more aggrieved seeing silver spooned mouth promoters talking a big game and showing off their Bentleys off the blood and sweat of others.

    Kid needs to pipe down and drive a 12plate fiesta so he doesn’t upset some no mark on a forum.

    By all accounts James Degale is a lovely guy in real life. But from the way he portrays himself he's second only to Bellew in the **** personality stakes.

    He does this stuff on purpose to troll his haters and people still fall for it.

    Who else feels the need to post a video on YouTube when they buy a nice car?

    I think it's great that he can afford to buy such a car and then film himself receiving it, it's what everyone wants to see. He works really hard, 3-4 fights a year, never shirking anyone, always fighting the best to get on the PPV gravy train, the Quinlan fight was one for the ages.

    People love this idiot but slate Khan who for all his floors has actually deservedly achieved stuff and has proved he has balls to fight the best.

    Yeah one of my pals was at a wedding a few years ago where he didn't know anyone and got chatting to Degale, ended up drinking with him all night and they still speak now. Apparently he is a top bloke.

    Don't understand anyone begrudging this to Eubank. He has worked hard and no one can deny that - he trains his arse off and always puts on a good show.

    Don't agree with the cherry picking criticisms either. Fought BJS when he didn't have to, and ran him very close. Chudinov was a decent win. Spike Sullivan & Blackwell back to back were tough fights to take too. Then entered the WBSS - huge win over Yildrim who has since proved he is no slouch and fringe world class.

    Eubank gives his all and deserves everything he gets. Even if he hadn't achieved anything, his father before him worked his backside off so that his family could have what they wanted.

    Never understood people who dislike others because they are successful and have made good money honestly.
