    Warrington v Galahad - Frank is refusing to promote this fight even tho Galahad is mandatory and the fight has been ordered to be made. Surely Frank is not going to make Warrington vacate his title just because he doesn't like the fight.

    Tyson Fury - He keeps on going on about how Fury is the #1 heavyweight and he deserves equal share with AJ. Surely he needs to realise AJ is #1 as he has all the belts plus AJ would sell more tickets. Frank keeps saying Fury is the public champion however I still couldn't see him selling out Wembley against the likes of Povetkin and Takam.

    Anthony Yarde - This guy needs a testing fight. Frank keeps saying he is ranked number 1 so put him in against a decent fighter. He is refusing to put him in against Buatsi which I think would be a great fight. His argument is Buatsi should be fighting Callum Johnson however these fighters are at different stages of their careers and the more sensible fight would be Yarde v Buatsi.

    Billy Joe Saunders - the way Frank defends BJS about his failure drug test is embarrassing. BJS signed up to Varda drug tests so they should abide to their rules. Frank blames Matchroom for not letting BJS defend his title but in reality the only person you can blame in this situation is BJS.

    Dubois v Gorman - His argument for not making this fight is he thinks this will attract 25k-30k attendance by end of this year. He must be crazy if he thinks this fight would sell that much at anytime.

    He keeps going on about making fights the public want well I want Yarde v Buatsi, Warrington v Galahad, Fury v AJ so stop making excuses and try and make them.

    I think Frank is turning into a bitter old man!!!

    Bro... you need to let it go. There are countless of threads like this..
    Warrington vs the little drug cheating scumbag doesn't appeal to me either... all of his other 'excuses' are passable, he is talking sense to me. Frank Warren has been involved with boxing since you was swimming in your daddys nut sack... put some respect on his name!!

    Yes Galahad was banned for drugs but he has served his time now so should be treated like any other boxer. No-one says the same things about Fury and BJS so I think Galahad deserves his shot.
    As far as your comments about Frank being involved in boxing since I was born then it shouldn't really matter whether I am young or old I think everyone is allowed their own opinion.

    TBH fury jumped in with wilder when Joshua wouldn't. Now fury has exposed Wilder a little Joshua is all over it.

    Plus imo humble opinion furys win over klitschko was far more impressive and imo again and 90% of the boxing world he has beaten wilder. Both wins better than any of Aj at this point. Don't need all the belts to be number 1.

    Most other points on Frank I agree with.

    Fury is a huge star. His next fight in the UK will be at Old Trafford.

    50/50 or no deal.

    Fury next fight will be Wilder rematch in Vegas. When/If Fury does fight at Old Trafford then unless it's AJ Wilder or Whyte then he will struggle to sell this venue out in my opinion.

    Let’s just ignore the Fury/Wilder/Joshua ****e. It’s been done to death and there’s a million threads about it.

    What’s he said about Galahad and Warrington? Seems obsurd he would refuse to promote it? Is it because he knows it’s not a big seller and feels Warrington is now a PPV star now? Let Eddie have this one.

    The Amar fight is sound for Yarde.

    Billy Joe Saunders only has himself to blame. Sign up to VADA then obide by their rules.

    Buatsi/Johnson/Yarde. Buatsi and Yarde are at the same stage in their career a British title fight between them is unarguable really. Johnson has been there done it and on to other things. No doubt one or both will face him in the future.

    I like Gorman but like Dubois he’s got nothing about him in the personality stakes. These two wouldn’t sell out the copper box this year IMO. It would be a great undercard fight this year. I don’t know why Frank is so scared of Dubois getting a loss on his record. Either of them can come back from it. Froch, Groves, Degale, Bellew and plenty of others have came back from losses to then win a world title. It doesn’t mean the end of your career.

    He has mentioned on numerous interviews that he doesn't want Warrington to fight Galahad. Even on today's IFL interview he refuses to comment on the fight. I think he would rather persuade Warrington to give up the title rather than fight Gakahad, which I think is crazy because 1) I think it's a good fight and 2) I actually think Warrington wins it.

    I don't see a problem with Frank not wanting Warrington to fight Galahad even though he'll probably have to in the end. It just suggests that he'd rather chase bigger fights for Warrington.

    Frank would rather if seen Warrington v Valdez and I think he was hoping to petition the IBF for a unification before it came out that the IBF was ordering the mand next.
    There may be more going on behind the scenes than Frank is willing to comment on and maybe that's why he didn't answer the question on ifl.
    I do agree tho, it wouldn't surprise me if Frank would rather see him drop the belt rather than deal with galahad.
    Frank is a cantankerous old man who likes his own way.

    Cutting off his nose to spite his hammer head if he's refusing to promote.

    Didn't they use their voluntary to face Frampton? Mandatories need to be enforced, even if they are tools like Galahad. Stick it on in Leeds, sold out arena and a 'relatively ' easy nights work.

    Then look towards the states for the unifications.
