    HE must have got that link from Eddie.

    Dillian and his team wouldn't have been smart enough to look for that.

    Funny though.

    Stacked undercard meaning his card starts at 4pm with the main event starting around midnight.

    i know, its a mental aporoach. How many oeoole want 15 fights or so on a bill, i dont, too long. If i was a promoter would never do more than 6-7 fights on card, use money to do quality, not quantity.

    For years WBA and then IBF title fights were not sanctioned in Britain because the BBB of C would only recognise the WBC as they only joined the WBC.


    Then in the early 80s Warren formed the National Boxing Council (NBC) and tried to gain membership to the WBA, as the recognised British member, which probably would have led to NBC and BBB of C both being legally entitled to sanction fights in Britain.


    But in the end the BBB of C backed down and joined the WBA and also recognised Warren's NBC and thus Warren agreed to come under the BBB of C umbrella.


    Warren kicked off again when the BBB of C did not recognise the IBF and the BBB of C again backed down allowing Warren to stage the Marsh/Manley fight in 1987.

    Possibly because it’s nothing to do with the promotional company and just a personal thing. Only reason I can think of

    I thought he’d still have to hold a license if some sort as the main man......unless on paper he’s not the main man.

    How would you keep all the fighters and journeymen happy and fighting regular if you only had 6 per show?

    Frank's cards are stacked.

    Anyone else remember the Fury-Chisora 2 and BJS-Eubank JR card?

    Fury's fight started at 1am and half of the crowd had left, the other half who had stayed had to book a taxi home as the tube station had closed for the night. Rumour has it that the London taxi firms pay Frank to make sure his events finish after the last tube (back in those days, there was no night tubes like you have now).
