    I'm glad Mick got a nice pay off he seems a decent bloke.
    Although going all in and putting everything at risk for the Parker v Hughie fight was a bit silly imo.
    Huge risk for possibly huge reward , he rolled the dice and lost , personally I can’t have much sympathy for that strategy but I do like him and am glad he’s made some dough from the Tyson situation.

    If you believe what you read, I doubt this £1.5m even clears his debts

    I agree with this. Bit disappointed that Tyson didn't sort him out and MH had to take it to the courts, thought Tyson was a little better than that

    Yeah I agree. I thought he won it by a few rounds to be fair.

    Hughie, uncle and Mick took a pic with Haye in a gym and Tyson got upset because Haye ducked him twice and cost him a year of his career mugging him off. He got upset because he saw it as them being traitors to him and he stopped talking to them.

    That's the general gist of it.

    Anybody who thinks Fury won that fight is absolutely clueless
    There is no argument for him to have won that fight whatsoever

    He didn't deserve to win a belt on that performance imo mate, I had Parker trying to make a fight an Hughie trying to blag a fight

    Spot on. Pure bias if you think Hughie won that fight.

    I think it all depends on what the judges like, and they were all pretty much in agreement on the night. I thought Hughie was excellent in defence, but poor in effective aggression and clean hard punches. Arguably, it was Parker who was showing the aggression although it wasn’t effective, and he was showing the ring generalship in holding centre ring and trying to force the action. That’s what got him the win over the 12 rounds. Neither fighter came out of that fight in a good light in retrospect. You could spin it round and say by making him miss Hughie was dictating the fight but like I say, it’s subjective but judges are mostly going to favour the more aggressive fighter.
