    I can understand that, at least they're honest about it, he's definitely not ready yet.

    Right move all day long. It’s great when fighters get big opportunities and boxing does produce some of the best fairytales. Galahad is a tough fight for the top tier fighters, never mind your good prospects.

    Agreed fair play to the trainer for stating up front that Gill is not ready and having the accountability to make that clear publicly. It’s good management of his fighter who, remember, lost to Tinoco (who was then schooled by Cordina).

    Agreed. Can't really complain when they just come out and say that they turned it down because he's not ready.

    How can u move above domestic level when u withdraw from a British title fight. Shocking. Not kids biggest fan but he wins that fight easily if it were made.

    Coldwell should maybe reply to some other tweets with a rather more sombre tone :)

    Fair play, you normally get macho talk i.e. money wasn’t there, venue wasn’t right or something along those lines. Least he’s honest!

    Sometimes ppl think that euro level is bummy level and assume that this level is something like these low level euro journeymans they book to fight with.
    real euro level gatekeepers are dudes like Bolotņiks and some even better than this Bolotņiks. Good luck.
    Burton already had proved how this does looks.
    Actually now all these: Michel, Ward, Burton are journeyman level boxers for euro level. Ofc if good backup, might get some easy fights.
