    You're a strange man, Tony. Warren takes a risk with his top prospect, throws him in with another unbeaten prospect and the stable favourite passes with flying colours in a punch perfect performance that climaxed with an exciting KO. Yet you're on here giving out about the promotion?

    For anyone who was paying attention, BT promoted this fight very well with no filter episodes, hourly advertisements, umpteen social media posts and a gloves are off special. What else are they supposed to do? We've established they don't have a sky sports news - get over it.

    If you don't have BT or don't follow any of their social media outlets, how are you supposed to see the promotional stuff? You literally avoid the promotional stuff and then give out about the lack of it.

    The crowd looked fairly full to me last night - 10,000 was it? Not bad at all for a 21 year old kid starting his career.

    You sound like Naz when he done his bollox betting on Eubanks Jnr to beat Groves then had a meltdown post fight stating that he should retire.

    Fights are very rarely 50/50 fights and 60/40 either way is as close as it gets 99% of the time.

    Check my comments pre fight, I did not know who would win and stated that Daniel should unleash the power early as I could not see him winning on points.

    I guarantee that if you had to sell all your assets and stick them on that fight last night, regardless of fighter selected, you would be very nervous as soon as the bet was placed.

    Great to see 2 young fighters with ambition getting it on and not persisting with 30 fights down the pudding route.

    You answer your own point. Unless you're tied up with BT you won't see any of it. Where is Warren in terms of social media? Is he making sure Dubois is getting his name out there on those sort of platforms? Did he put any foresight into the idea that this weekend was possibly the biggest sporting clash that could be arranged, ensuring that his big fight was totally overlooked?

    I'm merely agreeing with a previous post that Warren needs to start building Dubois into a guy who is getting known by your casual audience. As a fight this was great for the fans. As a promotion it was, again, somewhat lacking from Frank to put it mildly.

    Talksport were all over this fight for the previous 2 weeks as well.

    Sounds like Frank done Tony's mother in the past

    The fight was well promoted Tony, end of story. The fact you refuse to watch BT sport doesn't make a difference to that fact. Hearn promotes his fights on sky, Warren promotes his fights on BT - thats kind of how it works. The attendance was healthy so the other sports on clearly didn't make much of a difference.

    You sound like a bloke who could ride a cracker but give out about the ride afterwards because her little brother pulled your hair in primary school.

    Live a little, mate.

    Great fight!

    I put a sly tenner on Gorman as a live underdog but was very impressed with Dubois. He simply walked through Gorman and punched his head off. He looked like he could have flung him into the crowd Thunder Lips style had he wished.

    Credit to both and Frank for putting that one on. Gorman can come again though he’ll never be near Dubois.

    Who was at the fight? There looked like there was a bit row kicking off half way through.

    At this stage of DDD's development it wouldn't be right for Warren to be aggressively pushing him out there doing so much promotional work

    He is doing the right thing by allowing Dubios to focos on his boxing and not rushing him forward and making him out to be something which he is not.

    If legacy is what the boy wants he's in the right hands, as he will be developed and matured carefully. If it's money, easy fights and short term fame, then yes he should have signed with Matchroom.

    Let's be fair Whyte fights next week and they cannot even give the tickets away and he is Skys 2nd biggest name.

    Must be bad sales when Kugan was even joking about how few have been sold!

    AJs boom in stadiums massively scews how popular boxing is to attend atm.

    We should thank Frank.

    If DDD was with Eh day, that fight last night would certainly have been PPV along with every future fight now.

    Check Tony Dosh PPV records for reference.

    Genuinely laughed out loud at this! So true as well. He's got ice running through the veins.

    Seems they have added a new ticket price for next week at 70.

    Still massively expensive
