    Leaving Cyclone did f**k all good for Frampton. I hope Taylor doesn't balls his career up as it could be a very exciting one he's just beaten one of the best boxers currently active in Regis Prograis

    After his rascim spat the other week it was clear he was off to America. Doesn't really have s huge fanbase here and his views wouldn't warm him to most English.

    Still don't get the racism angle, thought he called the bouncer something along the lines of an orange *******?

    When they get to world title stage Cyclone should have had contracts in place were they revert to being the manager and not the promoter.

    It was a Sectarian slur, not the KKK attack that some reports would have you believe

    Good move for him if he’s on for the Ramirez fight, more fighters should do the same.

    I don’t think Hearn had much to offer Taylor really, Taylor would have smashed Ritson - not a competitive fight. Just hope his fights are picked up on UK TV.

    I think they needed to make an immediate response to ensure that their claim is reported, otherwise people will assume they've amicably parted company. Making this public is one form of leverage.

    No surprise really considering the carrot of the undisputed fight with Ramirez is there with Top Rank.

    Hearn takes a massive L for genuinely thinking a fight with Ritson at St James park could have convinced Taylor to sign.

    Lol Ritson hasn't even proved himself at Euro level. Imagine the beating he'd take if he fought Taylor.

    It would genuinely have been career shortening and on his way to been punch drunk, he would have eaten alot of shots.

    Probably the smartest move for him all things considered.The undisputed fight with ramirez is a certainty barring any slip up's surely.

    If Taylor’s leaves Mcguigan to get trained by Jamie Moore then I’m giving up on boxing
